El Clasico

Another chapter in the fiercest rivalry in Mexican soccer unfolds on Sunday, March 31, when the Guadalajara Chivas host Club America from the capital at the city’s Omnilife Stadium.  The charged atmosphere at the these games is like no other; fans line up for hours to purchase coveted tickets.  Sunday’s game, which kicks off at 5 p.m., is sure to be a sell-out and will not be broadcast live on free-to-air television – only for Sky subscribers. However, dozens of bars and restaurants in Jalisco will be showing the game, making for the perfect (or imperfect, depending on which team you support) end to the week-long Easter holiday.

Past crowds have reached 100,000, making the pageant the second biggest after the one in Iztapalapa (in Mexico City). The event attracts visitors from all over Mexico, the United States, Europe and Asia.
