The NFL’s first game in Mexico City since 2019 will feature a matchup of NFC West teams.

The league announced on Wednesday that the 49ers will take on the Cardinals at Estadio Azteca on November 21. It will be a Monday night game and the last of the five international games that will be played this season.

It’s a rematch of the first international game in league history. The Cardinals beat the 49ers 31-14 at Estadio Azteca in 2005. Three other games have been played at the venue and a 2018 game between the Chiefs and Rams was moved due to issues with the playing field.

Germany will host its first regular-season game and there will be three contests in London before the Niners and Cardinals head south for their November game.

  1. So is that a 49ER road game considering the 9ERS played 9 road games during the regular season plus an additional 3 in the playoffs

  2. NFL getting so greedy now trying to expand. Everyone hates these games.

  3. At 7,800 feet. That’s nearly 3,000 feet higher than Mile High Stadium. How does the player’s union sign off on games at that place?
