The Mexican professional football team Mazatlán F.C. owner Ricardo Salinas Pliego announced not very long back that the Liga MX team home ground – the Estadio de Mazatlán in Mexico – will undergo a name change.

‘euro.ES Euro’ stated that on October 25th, the stadium was renamed the Estadio El Encanto after the Mazatlán F.C. signed an alliance agreement with a local company dedicated to the construction of houses – Encanto Desarrollos. With this change in moniker, the ‘El Kraken’ nickname of the stadium has been left behind which was quite popular among fans.

The Mazatlán Futbol Club is a Mexican professional football team based in Mazatlán, Sinaloa (Mexico) currently playing in Liga MX, the top professional football division in Mexico. The club was established in June 2020 after the Monarcas Morelia franchise announced that it would be moving to the City of Mazatlán.
