In total Mexico has qualified for sixteen football World Cups with their best results being quarter-final finishes in the 1970 and 1986 football World Cups (both hosted by Mexico). The Mexico National Football Team play their home games at the enormous Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, the stadium opened in 1966 and ever since has been the official stadium of the national team, as well as club team América. With a capacity of 87,000, the stadium has hosted two Football World Cup finals and was also the principal venue for football at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City.
