49ers fans expected to take over Estadio Azteca vs. Cardinals

Nov 16, 2022 at 4:28 PM--


Technically, the San Francisco 49ers will be designated as the road team for Monday night's game in Mexico City. However, you might not be able to tell by looking in the stands at Estadio Azteca. Niner fans are expected to be the overwhelming majority when the Bay Area team takes the field against the Arizona Cardinals for the international game.

According to ESPN's Nick Wagoner, per third-party ticket seller Vivid Seats, 49ers fans are expected to make up about 82 percent of the crowd on Monday night.

Wagoner added: "Not surprising but still a whopping number."


It's not surprising because 49ers fans taking over opposing stadiums has become a regular occurrence over the last few years. A sea of red and gold fills the stands at SoFi Stadium whenever the Niners travel south to play the Los Angeles Rams. But the 49ers fan takeovers are not limited to the team's Southern California rival. Look at Bank of America Stadium as the Carolina Panthers hosted the 49ers in Week 5.


This morning on KNBR, head coach Kyle Shanahan was told that 49ers fans will likely take over the Mexico City venue.

"That's what I'm hoping for," Shanahan responded. "We're both red, so we'll find out the truth when the cheering [begins]. ... That's my gut also, so I'm hoping for it."

San Francisco is currently an eight-point favorite in Monday night's game. However, that could move further in the 49ers' favor depending on the status of the Cardinals' quarterbacks. Kyler Murray is dealing with a hamstring injury that kept him out this past weekend against the Los Angeles Rams, while McCoy is working through a knee injury suffered in that game. Both are considered day-to-day.

Rapoport: Brock Purdy injury robbed fans of competitive matchup, made 49ers-Eagles an unfair fight

The Philadelphia Eagles might have been the better team in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. But were they 31-7 better than the San Francisco 49ers? Probably not. Of course, we are all left wondering what might have happened had rookie quarterback Brock Purdy not been hurt in the first quarter. The 49ers felt they had prepared a great game plan for their bout with the Eagles. Unfortunately, that quickly got thrown out the window. "We were really excited for today, and we really wanted an opportunity to play that team," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game. "They played great, and they did good things, but we wish we had a little bit better

Every year, we poll 49ers Webzone fans to determine the San Francisco 49ers' most valuable player in the eyes of The Faithful. This season's MVP was probably clear even before the voting started. Although, there was a chance that Christian McCaffrey, the star running back acquired from the Carolina Panthers ahead of the trade deadline, could steal away a significant number of the votes, and he did. Still, defensive end Nick Bosa's dominant 2022 campaign was enough to solidify his lead among 49ers teammates. The star pass rusher earned over 43 percent of the fans from fans. McCaffrey came in second with nearly 29 percent of the votes, while rookie quarterback Brock Purdy earned almost 21 percent. Our fans have chosen an MVP
