The quarter-finals of the 2021 Guard1anes are about to begin and the fans received important news today regarding their potential play-off attendance.

The “epidemiological traffic light” in the metropolitan area of Mexico City will allow fans to return to stadiums.

Through a statement, Liga MX confirmed the reopening of the Estadio Azteca, where Liga MX’s top-two seeds América and Cruz Azul play.

In addition, the Estadio Nemesio Diez, home of Toluca, will also be able to house supporters for their huge match against Cruz Azul.

While the Estadio Azteca will open to 25% capacity (just under 22,000 fans), it’s unclear how many people will be allowed in Toluca’s 30,000-seat stadium.

Toluca will host Cruz Azul in their first leg on Wednesday, with the return leg taking place in Mexico City on Saturday.

América will host Pachuca on Sunday after the two teams square off in Thursday’s first-leg clash.
