If you were thinking about purchasing tickets to see Mexico in Brazil this summer, it may already be too late.
All three of El Tri’s games in the World Cup group stage are sold out, according to a FIFA statement released Tuesday. The only other nation to have sold all their tickets this far out from the event starting on June 12 is host Brazil.

The last phase of ticket sales began Tuesday, with ten matches sold out, including the final and nine group games.
Mexico is scheduled to face Cameroon in Natal’s 42,000-capacity Estadio das Dunas on June 13, followed by Brazil in Fortaleza’s 65,000-seater Estadio Castelao on June 17 and capping off Group A matches against Croatia in Recife’s 44,000-capacity Arena Pernambuco on June 23.
Should El Tri get through the group state, it will play in Belo Horizonte (if it finishes first in Group A) or in Fortaleza (if it comes second) and would face Spain, Netherlands, Chile or Australia in the Round of 16.
