The Birthplace of Mexican Soccer

Pachuca is proud to be known as the birthplace of Mexican soccer. The game was first introduced by a group of Cornish miners in 1901, and later adopted by the locals. Today, the city is the site of the first Soccer University in the country, and it’s also home to a professional soccer team.

The city has modern attractions like the Interactive World Soccer Center, a space that includes a mini stadium, interactive exhibits, and a 3D theater; the Soccer Hall of Fame, an exhibition that promotes the sport and recognizes some of the best Mexican and international players; and the Miguel Hidalgo Stadium, a modern stadium with 35,000 seats that’s the official home of the Pachuca “Tuzos.”
