The Estadio Caliente, is a multi-use stadium in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, that is mostly used for football matches.The stadium hosts home matches for the Mexican professional football team Club Tijuana, who play in the Primera División de México, Mexico's First Division. The stadium was opened on November 2007, according to schedule. The stadium originally had a capacity of 13,333. On March 2008, the capacity was increased to 33,333. Stadium owner Jorge Hank Rhon's main reason for constructing the stadium was his wish to have a professional soccer club in the city. Because the Mexican Football Federation says that teams participating in the First Division must have a stadium with a capacity over 15,000, Club Tijuana officially became qualified for promotion to the Primera División de México when the capacity was increased. The construction of the stadium was planned in two parts. The first part finished the ground and lower sections of the stadium. In the second phase, the stadiums capacity was increased.
