Enthusiasm for the NFL in Mexico
The director of the NFL in Mexico, Arturo Olivé, assured this Friday that the league expects a favorable response from Mexican fans for this duel despite the fact that in 2020 and 2021 the scheduled games had to be suspended due to the pandemic.
“We are very excited that the NFL is returning to Mexico at the Azteca Stadium. We thank all the fans for the wait because of this forced two-year break, we know they will be back on November 21,” said Olivé.
The interest that Mexican fans have in the NFL is shown in the crowds that have attended the four regular season games that have been held at the Azteca Stadium since 2005, accumulating 333,549 fans.
The first of these duels was in 2005; the Cardinals triumphed 31-14 over the 49ers, precisely the rivals they will face this year.
