The Mexico City stop included a daily briefing and overview of the bid tour as well as stops at the Zocalo, Mexico's city square and a proposed site for a FIFA fan fest, and Azteca Stadium, which has hosted World Cup finals in 1970 and 1986.

The five inspectors also visited the Centro de Alto Rendimiento, the Mexican federation's national team training center.
