LAUSANNE, Switzerland – The 16,000-seat Estadio Francisco I. Madero, home of Mexican Baseball League (LMB) club Saraperos de Saltillo, has been added to the line-up of venues for the WBSC U-23 Baseball World Cup 2016 Monterrey, which opens 28 October.

WBSC officials recently visited the international standard stadium, which was renovated in 2011 and features the largest high-definition (HD) video scoreboard in Latin America at 14m x 22m (46 ft x 72 ft).

Through a cooperation with the state governments of Nuevo Leon and Coahuila, LMB, the Saraperos, the Mexican Baseball Federation and WBSC, Estadio Madero will host two World Cup games per day, joining Estadio de Béisbol Monterrey – home of LMB club Sultanes de Monterrey — and Estadio de Béisbol PoliDeportivo Tigres.
