Southern California has become a second home to the Mexican National Team, having played countless games over the years at the legendary Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in front of capacity crowds.

The 2023 match is also part of the historic stadium’s ‘Coliseum Forever’ celebration, honoring the landmark centennial anniversary of the venue.
