Omnilife Stadium, formerly known as Chivas Stadium (Estadio Chivas), is the 4th largest stadium in Mexico. It is built in the JVC complex, a multi-use venue that is used mostly for football matches including home matches for Club Deportivo Guadalajara, commonly known as the “Chivas.” The stadium has a seating capacity of 49,850. Construction started in February 2004, but due to financial problems and other issues, the stadium’s completion was delayed for a number of years. The stadium hosted its first major international event with the first leg of the 2010 Finals of the Copa Libertadores. The artificial field has caused a great controversy as many notable players criticized it.
