Club America began in 1916 when 2 college teams united to challenge Mexico’s established soccer teams that invariably featured foreign-born players. Club America quickly rose through the ranks and proved that Mexico could produce its own talent. The team went on to supply the majority of the players who played for Mexico’s national team in the first FIFA World Cup in 1930. As the years passed, the team saw its share of legendary players, including Enrique Borja, Carlos Hermosillo, and Cuauhtémoc Blanco. In addition to a tradition of fantastic players, the team has also won a whole lot of championships, including 12 league titles, 5 Copa Mexico wins, 5 Campeón de Campeones cups, and 10 FIFA-recognized club trophies. With such a rich history of success, it’s no surprise that Club America tickets allow you to take part in one of Mexico City’s top things to do.
