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.

Quarterback Brock Purdy wasn't quite at his best in the 49ers' 19-12 Divisional Playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, but he made more than enough plays to help the 49ers advance and add another chapter to the amazing story of his rookie season. The win moved Purdy to 7-0 as a starter and gave him his second playoff victory, which is an outstanding start for any rookie quarterback, whether they were selected first overall in the draft or last, as Purdy was in 2022. Along the way Purdy did enough to continue to impress his teammates as well as those watching him at home, including former 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who expressed his praise for Purdy on Twitter.
