Overview

Fascinating, complex, colourful, vibrant, unpredictable, eccentric – if you are visiting Mexico City, or CDMX according to the locals, this is what you can expect! We have designed for you an amazing, local and authentic tour of this city, with football matches, stadium tours, city tour and much more!

With Homefans, you will immerse yourself for 8 days in the Mexican Football Culture, discovering the little gems, hidden street food tacos, attend the famous “Lucha Libre”, all accompanied by a born and raised local Mexico City host.

You will experience and tick-off from your bucket list a match  at Estadio Azteca, one of the most important stadiums in the history of the sport and stage where Brazil won the World Cup of 1970. You will also watch a second match as part of either the Mexican National League or the Cup.  The clubs we will be seeing are Club América and Cruz Azul, they are eternal rivals and you will have the chance to learn about their history, checking out neighbourhoods with murals and paintings from both clubs.

We will always begin our matchday experience picking you up at the hotel and driving to the surroundings of the stadium. Over there, we have 2 hours to eat the most delicious and traditional street food, drink local beers and chat with the fans. Entering the stadium is just incredible! It is huge and we will have good spots to check the party made in the stands!

Also, there will be a day in which your local host will take you on a city tour, followed by a stadium tour at Azteca, where you will have 20% discount on the official store to buy some souvenirs back home. And don’t forget our amazing night of “Lucha Libre”! We will go to one of the most traditional sports in México, of course, accompanied by good local beers and appetizers!

For this special itinerary, we’ve managed to include, just for you, a Gastronomic Bike & Multi-Taco Tour! Join us to discover and taste some of the best tacos in the world. We’ll provide foldable bikes and lead you through the chic and hip neighbourhoods of Polanco, Condesa or Roma. We’ll ride through colourful markets and hop from brick-and-mortar establishments to street stands, sampling a variety of tacos influenced by Mexico’s diverse geography and culture. We’ll wash the tacos down with cold beer or mezcal, a spirit made from the agave plant.

And the end of the adventure, with a golden touch, two magical and hot days in Guadalajara !
There, our hosts Pedro, Helder, and team will be waiting for you to show you the football culture of the other great Mexican city.

FAQs

Will the stadiums be open in 2021/22? At what capacity?

Homefans believe that stadiums will be open to fans, however we cannot at this stage confirm what the capacity will be.  However our flexible booking policies mean that if the stadium will only accept 50% fans and you decide you only want to travel with 100% attendance you can swap to another venue or another date.

Will I need to prove I am vaccinated? Or show a negative test?

This will vary destination to destination and based on your nationality and age. Therefore Homefans are not able to advise on this.  Please check the foreign ministry of your destination and home country and the stadium requirements.  Again, if you find the requirements too much you can defer to later in the season/year when they relax further.

COVID-19 hasn’t gone away- should I still book?

We believe so, we all need something to look forward to.  But we understand that people may be apprehensive which is why we have created a flexible cancellation policy which means in the event that the event does not happen the amount paid simply becomes Homefans credit. 

 

You can transfer this to a later date (with no time limit), transfer to another tour, or even give it to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason (as long as you give us 45 days notice)

Do I have to pay the full amount when I book?

No, you can secure your place with a deposit of just 30%, then pay the balance at least 4 weeks before your trip date depending on your destination.

Where in the stadiums will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

 

Unfortunately we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking, however our destination managers work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above. However this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own. Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

Can children / young adults join the tour?

If we can accept children there will be an option in the booking flow. However for many trips our local hosts take the decision, based on the content of the tour, to open this up to adults only. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Can you cater to dietary needs or requirements?

Our local hosts will do everything they can to cater to travellers’ needs. It’s a good idea to share your requirements at the time of booking so that our host is able to make the required preparations

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep the costs low we always offer prices based on 2 sharing. If you make a booking for an odd number of people you or another member of your party may be paired with another traveller of the same sex. If you wish you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. Simply make your booking as normal and get in touch with us to arrange this.
