Estadio Corregidora is a stadium in Querétaro, Mexico. Named for Mexican War of Independence heroine Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez ("La Corregidora"), it has a capacity of 35,575 and is located on the outskirts of the city of Querétaro, 211 kilometres (131 mi) north of Mexico City. This venue is used mostly for football (soccer) games. It is the home of the team Querétaro FC and hosted the 1986 FIFA World Cup.

Built in 1985 in a collaboration between Mexican and European partners, it is considered one of the most beautiful stadiums in Mexico. Its design allows for the safe exit of all spectators even if full in less than seven minutes.

It is one of the largest football venues in Mexico, after the Estadio Azteca, the Estadio Olímpico Universitario (both in Mexico City), Estadio Cuauhtémoc in Puebla and Estadio Jalisco in Guadalajara.

It is also used for concerts, hosting internationally known pop stars like Rod Stewart, Miguel Bosé and Shakira, among others.
