On 1982, Governor Rafael Camacho Guzmán expressed his desire to give Querétaro a big soccer stadium. Soon after, he informed that its construction will come true, basically, for the sole purpose that on its field could be played matches of the 1986 World Cup. The architects of Querétaro were called to a contest and the project chosen was by Luis Alfonso Fernández Siurob.
We see similarities with Azteca Stadium, because it is made up by three levels: field zone (special), middle zone (balconies and stalls), top zone (preferential).
The stadium’s name was chosen from a contest. It was inaugurated on 1985 by President Miguel de la Madrid Hurtado.
