Yon de Luisa, President of the Mexican FA, says that the Estadio Azteca will be renovated for the 2026 World Cup.

The 2026 World Cup will take place as part of a joint bid between the United States, Canada, and Mexico, with the Estadio Azteca being one of the host stadiums for the competition.

In the past, the legendary stadium played host to the World Cup final in 1986 and it will now be renovated to allow it to meet FIFA regulations.

"The stadiums will be remodeled, there will be more adaptations in the Estadio Azteca than, for example, in the 'Rayados' stadium, just because it was built 50 years ago," admitted Yon de Luisa, president of the Mexican Football Federation, during the SIS Master Class event.

"Fortunately, with the people of FIFA, we have been working on these different remodeling plans. We can see that the stadium has changed its entire lighting structure, there will surely be changes in all the VIP areas, all the box sections, and other dressing room issues," he said.
