Arena México

Mexican Wrestling in Mexico City

One of Mexico City’s two wrestling venues, the 17,000-seat Arena México is taken over by a circus atmosphere each week, with flamboyant luchadores (wrestlers) such as Místico and Sam Adonis going at each other in tag teams or one-on-one. There are three or four bouts, building up to the headline match. Also check out the smaller Arena Coliseo.

Tickets are nearly always available at the door. Book in advance if you must have the pricier seats for Friday.
