Club: Club Tijuana | Opening: 2007 | Capacity: 21,000 seats
History and description
Estadio Caliente got built in 2007 to serve as the home for then newly-founded Club Tijuana. The stadium officially opened on the 11th of November 2007.
Over the next years, Estadio Caliente got further improved and expanded, and plans are to add further VIP boxes and extra seats resulting in a capacity of over 33,000 spectators. At the moment, only a small part of the tier of VIP boxes has been erected, leaving the rest of the side open.
Due to the successes of the club and resulting sell-out crowds, Tijuana is currently considering to expand capacity even further to over 40,000 seats, most likely at the expense of some of the planned VIP boxes.
Estadio Caliente is the only stadium in Mexico’s top league that has an artificial pitch.
Estadio Caliente is located toward the south-east of the city of Tijuana at about 5 kilometres from the centre area, a little more from the US border, and about 3.5 kilometres from the Zona Rio business district.
The stadium is easily reached by following the Paseo de los Héroes avenue from the centre or US border in southern-eastern direction. Estadio Caliente lies toward the end of the avenue. Turn right onto the Blvd de Las Americas. The stadium lies next to shopping centre Galerías Hipódromo.
Address: Blvd Agua Caliente 12027, Colonia Hipódromo, Tijuana
