A giant among CONCACAF teams, Mexico enjoys some of the most passionate and loyal fan support in the world's game. In fact, the story of international soccer begins with Mexico as they took on France in 1930 in the first ever match of the FIFA World Cup™. From there, El Tri has continued to feature prominently in the history of the sport reaching the quarterfinals when hosting the event in 1970 and 1986 and winning numerous CONCACAF crowns. Proudly sporting green and red, Mexican teams have blazed a trail ever since their first match in 1923. Whether playing in the Estadio Azteca or facing opponents the world over, El Tri represents Mexico proudly and, most often, successfully.
