Extra stadium info – Estadio Akron
The construction of the stadium started in 2004, but its completion was delayed for several years due to financial problems and other issues. The Estadio Akron, which opened as the Estadio Omnilife, is designed to look like a volcano with a cloud on top. It opened with a football match between Club Deportivo Guadalajara and the world famous English football club Manchester United. CD Guadalajara won the match 3-2. The Mexican football star Javier Hernández Balcázar, who left CD Guadalajara for Manchester United in 2010, scored the first goal of the game. In 2011, he lost his only UEFA Champions League final with Manchester United. FC Barcelona won the game 3-1.
Club Deportivo Guadalajara
CD Guadalajara, also known as Chivas, was founded in 1906 under a different name. They won the North American championship for football clubs in 1962 for the first time in their history. It was the inaugural edition of the tournament. Chivas won the title after beating Comunicaciones from Guatemala. CD Guadalajara became the first Mexican football club with 10 top-flight league titles, followed by their rivals Club América. Chivas also became the only Mexican top-flight football league club without foreign players.
