This month, Chivas de Guadalajara’s new stadium, Estadio Chivas, was supposed to open after two years of construction. Construction and financing delays have delayed that. But it looks like the new venue will open later this year.
The one major downside to the stadium from a soccer perspective? Artificial turf.
Let us take a look at the original renderings and the current progress for the 45,000 seater stadium.
