Club: Pachuca Club de Fútbol | Opening: 1993 | Capacity: 30,000 seats
History and description
Estadio Hidalgo replaced Pachuca’s previous stadium Estadio Revolución Mexicana.
The stadium officially opened on the 14th of February 1993 with a match between Pachuca and Pumas UNAM (0-1).
Estadio Hidalgo got extensively renovated in 2004, which included the construction of a roof over all sides of the stadium, and which raised capacity from an initial 24,000 to 30,000.
The stadium received a further minor upgrade in 2011 in preparation for the FIFA U-17 World Cup.
Estadio Hidalgo is located in the south-west of the city of Pachuca, about 3 kilometres from the city’s small city centre.
The stadium lies right next to the central bus terminal where the long-distance buses from, for example, Mexico City arrive. The bus journey from Mexico City’s northern bus terminal takes about 90 minutes.
The stadium is located on the right side of the entrance road to the city coming off the 85 Autopista México-Pachuca. Driving further north brings you to Pachuca’s city centre.
