Estadio Banorte – stadium description
When opened back in 2003, this stadium on the bank of Humaya river had four independent stands with main one, west stand, providing corporate facilities and roof for spectators. Thanks to prefabricated elements being used, it was possible to open it just three months after groundbreaking.
It wouldn’t be right to think it was complete back then, though. To this day east stand’s roof and skyboxes aren’t ready, while end stands were only half-way done in 2003, requiring extension after a few years.
Mexico: By year end, Dorados will have flashy new stadium
OK, not entirely new, rather significantly redeveloped and slightly bigger. In visual terms, however, the stadium should finally look complete, first time since opening in 2003.
