Nuevo Leon governor hints at new Tigres stadium, but rules out state investment

The governor of Nuevo Leon, Jaime Rodriguez Calderon, has hinted that a deal for a new Tigres stadium could be edging closer.

In a brief interview today, he said he was aware of a group of investors who were keen to build a new ground – but he added that it was not a matter for him and the state would not be investing any money.

“It’s not a matter for the governor,” he said.

“What I can say is that there is interest from a group of investors who want to build a new stadium for Tigres. It will be done in agreement with the club themselves, the state will not invest in it.”

Supply and Demand

Demand for a new ground has reached a crescendo in the last 12 months. Tickets at El Volcan are almost impossible to buy for non-season ticket holders and the famous stadium is starting to show signs of its age.

Watching Rayados move into a state-of-the-art new home has not helped to appease fans’ demands.

Numerous plans have been put forward, including building a new complex on the rail tracks behind El Volcan and constructing a “floating” arena over the Santa Catarina river. As yet, nothing has come to fruition.
