The MexTour has visited Mercedes-Benz Stadium on two previous occasions, included a special homecoming in June of 2019. The first match for El Tri at Mercedes-Benz Stadium featured the return of Tata Martino, the former Atlanta United head coach who is now at the helm of the Mexican national team vs. a Venezuelan squad featuring Atlanta United’s Josef Martinez.

Paraguay could provide a similar moment should the roster include former Atlanta United star Miguel Almiron who would return to Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the first time since winning the MLS Cup in 2018. Almiron is now a star with Newcastle United of the Premier League.

El Tri also played match at MBS in June of 2021 vs. Honduras in front of a crowd of over 70,000 fans, which at the time was one of the largest soccer crowds in the world coming off the global pandemic.
