The Mexican Federation of Football (Spanish: Federación Mexicana de Fútbol Asociación, A.C. , FMF or Femexfut) is the governing body of association football in Mexico. It administers the Mexican national team, the Mexican league and all affiliated amateur sectors, and is in charge of promoting, organizing, directing, spreading, and supervising competitive football in Mexico.

The FMF is member of CONCACAF, the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football; and Globally by FIFA, the International Federation of Association Football. Therefore must comply with the statutes, objectives and ideals of world football's governing body. The Mexican Football Federation's governing body is the General Assembly that conforms with the participation of the Primera Division with 55% of the votes; Liga De Ascenso with 5%; Segunda División, with 18%; Tercera División, with 13%, and the Amateur sector, with 9%.

Estadio Azul

More reading: Wikipedia Article

The Estadio Azul, is a 35,000-seat stadium located in Mexico City. This sports facility is currently used for association football matches and previously (until 1990) for American football. It is the home of Mexican football club Cruz Azul; it has been also home for Atlante F.C. (hence the nickname Estadio Azulgrana) and several home matches of the Mexico national football team, especially in the early 1990s. Both times when Mexico hosted the World Cup, Estadio Azul did not host any games mainly due to the age of the structure, the bad parking facilities and the complex traffic patterns. A peculiarity of this stadium is that it is built as a pit; the playing field is below street level. Another oddity is that just beside the stadium is the Plaza México, the world's largest bullring. \tStadium \t\t \t\t\tCrAzulStadium1.
