Long awaited third phase of Estadio Caliente's expansion is officially ongoing now. A total of 33 suites are to be added on top of the east stand.
On November 17 Club Tijuana officially confirmed the third phase of Estadio Caliente expansion. After the northern terrace in 2013 and business suites having topped the west stand in 2015, now a similar commercial development is beginning on the east side. You can see the general site plan below, on this drone footage from November 8.
As of now the team hasn't revealed final renders or extent of the planned works. All we know is that 33 new suites are planned, a number not surprising with the team ownership's love for the number 3. Just as a reminder, the desired final capacity of the stadium is set at 33,333.
The number of suites matches that presented in the below render from 2016. It was also already in 2016 that the works were initially expected to begin, which is why the temporary eastern boxes were removed well over a year ago.
The area called Zone 2 was first expected to host a grandstand mirroring the west one, however it was larer redesigned to include fewer boxes and more regular seats. On top of it a massive giant screen was to be placed but at this point we don't have confirmation of whether it's still the plan.
