In Guadalajara, soccer is the most popular sport by far and so much fun to watch.
There are 3 first division Guadalajara soccer teams: Club Deportivo Guadalajara or Chivas de Guadalajara, Los Zorros de Atlas and La Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara (UAG) or Tecos for short.

There are 2 stadiums where the Mexican soccer league games are played. Estadio Jalisco (Jalisco Stadium) and El Tres de Marzo (March 3rd) ... yes, you're not the only one that finds that funny!
Jalisco Stadium is where Chivas and Atlas soccer teams play. El Tres de Marzo is where the soccer team Tecos (UAG) play their games.
The Chivas of Guadalajara are one of the most popular soccer teams at the national level and one of the oldest. Something very unique about Chivas Mexican soccer players is that they are the only team in Mexico that require all players to be born in Mexico.
Needless to say, they are extremely popular all over the country. Their popularity even prompted the release of Chivas U.S.A. soccer team.
If you have never been to a soccer game, then seeing one while you're in Guadalajara is an absolute must! And if you already love soccer then you'll really want to go and catch a game.
Honestly, I wasn't really interested in seeing a game myself. But once I arrived and experienced it, I was completely converted to being a superfan of soccer.
Seeing a soccer game live is an experience like no other. Once you're there and sitting in the packed stadium a wonderful thrill and camaraderie just takes over. You'll really feel the passion that Guadalajara soccer spectators have for this fun and exciting sport.
You'll find yourself cheering, yelling and jumping up and down with everyone else for your favorite team.
My all time favorite is Chivas. Go Chivas! When I went to a game I was really blown away by the atmosphere. All in all, the conditions were absolutely perfect for people of all ages.
You do have to be careful when there is a very important game going on such as any of the following rival teams playing each other: Chivas, Atlas and America. There will be huge crowds and tons of people going in and out.
Just be cautious especially if you are elderly or have very young children but normally Jalisco Stadium is very organized and quite safe.
The prices for games will vary depending on where your seats are! The games are usually on Saturdays and Sundays with a few exceptions. A few times a year they'll have a game on Wednesday or Thursday. For more information pick up a local newspaper for up to date schedules.
Like all stadiums, there are vendors who walk up and down the aisles selling popcorn, beer and sodas. Perfect atmosphere for a perfect game.
Get ready for fun at the stadium! Guadalajara soccer games are something you won't want to miss!
