Home of Pumas

As the name would suggest, this stadium was used for the 1968 Olympics (notice the Olympic torch above the mosiac).  Unfortunately, the stadium was probably much better suited for track and field than it is for soccer–because of its relatively shallow bowl and slightly raised field, it’s hard to get a view with a good perspective of the field.  As I’m now taking a class at UNAM (the university refered to in the stadium’s name) I feel like I should adopt Pumas as my team.
