Mexico City – The NFL will return to Mexico City on November 21 with Monday Night Football. The NFL’s first game in Mexico City since 2019 will feature a matchup of NFC West teams.
The league announced last week 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.
ESPN will televise this year’s Monday night game, with their new broadcast tandem of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.
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.
The rest of the 49ers’ schedule is set to be released later this month.
