1985 Ciudad de México Cup Tournament

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

The Ciudad de México Cup Tournament was a minor international football competition, which took place in the summer of 1985 in Mexico City.

Host nation Mexico, England and Italy participated in the tournament, and matches took place at the Estadio Azteca, home of Mexican team Club América. The three-nation mini-tournament was arranged as a preparatory exercise for Mexico, who would host the 1986 FIFA World Cup final tournament the following year.

The final game of this tournament was also the first game of the 1985 Azteca 2000 Tournament
