In an official document published by the Estadio Azteca twitter account, management confirms it has received authorization from Mexican authorities to reopen the Estadio Azteca for the upcoming Liguilla quarterfinal Mexico City derby between Club America and Cruz Azul. The stadium will be open at 25% capacity, or about 22,000 fans, and all social distancing regulations will be in place in order to gain access to the venue. This is a significant step for the Mexican League, who has been playing all its matches behind closed doors at first and only recently has started to allow fans in the stadiums in a limited capacity  since the start of the pandemic. Both America and Cruz Azul share the stadium for their home matches, and the last match with fans in the stands was played between Xolos de Tijuana and Cruz Azul on March 7, 2020.
