History

Club Tigres, officially born on March 7th 1960, emerged from a metamorphosis of the Jabatos team, founded three years earlier and transferred to the Autonomous University of Nuevo León. The team had been formed with players from the plains and the amateur soccer leagues from Monterrey at the call of Lauro Leal, César M. Saldaña, Manolo Pando and Ramón Pedroza Langarica, who took them to Deportivo Anáhuac. Club de Futbol Nuevo León –also known as Jabatos or Club Esmeralda- debuted in the 1958-59 Second Division Tournament League and surprised everyone in the pitch. They also began to suffer financial problems.

Stadium

The Universitario Stadium has a capacity of 42,000 spectators, which is completely packed in each game thanks to the incomparable fans that have made Tigres a unique team in the country. Our house, built in 1967, is located in the heart of the campus of the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, in the metropolitan municipality of San Nicolás de los Garza. The Universitario Stadium is known throughout the football world because “The Wave” was born here: on September 18, 1984, this massive demonstration arose in a friendly game between Mexico and Argentina, which ended 1-1 with goals from Manuel Negrete and Jorge Burruchaga.

As part of its technology, this sports venue has the largest screen in Latin America, 12.48 meters wide by 8.60 meters high, in addition to 25 closed-circuit cameras that record everything that happens on and off the field. A pioneer in the use of closed circuit and wireless Internet, the Club Tigres headquarters were also the first to adapt its facilities to receive people with special needs who move in wheelchairs in the stands and in the parking lot.

Relevance

Inaugurated on May 30, 1967, the Universitario Stadium has become one of the most important sports venues in the country and, due to its characteristics, was chosen as the venue for the FIFA Mexico 86 World Cup and the U-17 FIFA World Cup Mexico 2011. The construction of this sports forum was promoted by the University Board, whose president was the prominent Monterrey businessman, Manuel L. Barragán. The cost was 23 million pesos. Several renovations have been part of the history of this venue and the adaptations related to the FIFA U-17 World Cup Mexico 2011 continue to consolidate it as one of the best stadiums in the country. World soccer stars such as Edson Arantes do Nascimento “Pelé”, Diego Armando Maradona, Giorgio Chinaglia, Franz Beckenbauer and Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, better known as “Ronaldinho”, have played on the pitch of Club Tigres.

The University Stadium has also hosted musical concerts by internationally renowned exponents, such as Queen, Rod Stewart, Guns N’Roses, The Rolling Stones, Iron Maiden, Coldplay, Shakira, Aerosmith, Metallica and Kiss, among others.
