NFL Mexico Games
The 49ers vs. Cardinals game will be the fourth regular season game played in Mexico since 2016. The majority of international games have been played in London, England. Munich, Germany hosted a contest for the first time in the regular season during Week 10.
San Francisco and Arizona will both make their second trip to play each other south of the border. The Cardinals beat the 49ers, 31-14, in Mexico on October 2, 2005. The most recent game in Mexico was in 2019.
2018’s NFL game at Estadio Azteca was moved because of poor field conditions.
