Well read until the end… the day started with some sightseeing in centro historico including a visit of the Aztec temple ruins of Templo Mayor.

We took the local crowded trains to collect our tickets for the PUMAS game as the only Ticketmaster option there is to use WillCall collection, which is painful to say the least. There is almost no close collection point for football tickets within the centre of the huge city. The closest collection point we used is the OfficeDepot near Lindavista. Make sure to take your ID plus the credit card you paid with, I paid for security reasons with a virtual card and this created some issues.

However the biggest issues of the trip created the travel to the first game at Estadio Azteca, well known home ground of Club America. We decided to took an Uber after have walked a lot during the day, but after a wait of 25mins we took the again overcrowded trains to the ground. When exiting the at the station some robbery gang pushed the masses heavily and stolen things including my pocket with lots of stuff in it, my bad – but better take Uber instead only! Enough said, afterwards not in the mood to discuss the game. With no money / cards left we were not even able to buy a beer…
Police was obviously not very productive or even helpful.
