5. Estadio Azteca is one of a kind
Before we get into the team’s performance on the pitch, let’s talk about the incredible Estadio Azteca. It was built in 1966 in the heart of Mexico City due to America’s growing popularity. And the team hasn’t disappointed with its play inside the electric stadium ever since.
Even more impressive, the Estadio Azteca has played host to some incredible games for World Cup Qualifiers. At the same time, the NFL has even brought games to Mexico to be played inside the Estadio. That’s how beautiful it is, as it’s known around the world as being a great place to watch a game.
4. Club America’s club legends are unmatched in the league
With so much brilliance in the club’s history, you already know there are some awesome players who have donned a Club America jersey. Between goal-scorers, defenders, midfielders and goalies, the list goes on and on of the all-time greats.
To name a few, you’ve got Luis Roberto Alvez, Alfredo Tena, Cuauhtemoc Blanco, Carlos Reinoso, Carlos Hermosillo, Paul Aguilar, Guillermo Ochoa, Hugo Sanchez, Raul Jimenez and so many others. Ochoa is actually back with the team now in his second call of duty. He’ll go down as one of the best Mexican goalies ever.
3. Club America’s incredible showing in international competitions
When it comes to international competitions, Club America has the most FIFA titles of any team from CONCACAF. America has won a record seven CONCACAF Champions Cup/Champions League titles, two Copa Interamericana Cups and one CONCACAF Giants Cup.
That long list of titles is what separates Club America from the other teams in the Liga MX, but also the other club squads throughout North America as well. At 10 international titles, you can fully expect that list to keep growing.
2. More than 100 years of greatness for Club America
While we can talk about titles and outstanding players all day, we’ve also got to remember that Club America has been around since 1916. That’s right, as of this writing, the team has been playing for 104 years, bringing incredible memories to all their supporters ever since then.
While there have been some lows for the club, the highs will always make fans remember why they’re die-hard America supporters. This club’s history is unmatched, no doubt about it.
1. Most Liga MX titles honor belongs to Club America
If you’re a Club America fan and a rival friend talks any trash to you, all you have to do is reply by asking them who has the most Liga MX titles. They’ll have no choice but to bow down to you, as Las Aguilas have a record 13 titles to their name.
Right behind them at 12 is Guadalajara, While Toluca has been crowned the champion 10 times, and Cruz Azul has won the league eight times. However, Club America stands above everyone else as the kings of the Liga MX with their 13 triumphs.
