I dont think it is a good idea. I know we have 100 million mexicans who can cheer for a team however Mexico is not that pasionate for Basketball.
Plus the mexican peso is not stable enough to have a team and pay in dollars. Just recently it got devaluated more than 40%. will the 22,000 personas will pay the tickets in dollars? will the fans buy the official merchandise in dollars? I dont think so..

A new arena in Mexico City? I've never heard of that. If there is a newly-constructed arena in Mexico City, shouldn't it replace the existing Sports Palace Dome on the eastern side of Mexico City?

Oh no it'll take forever if they do it like that, jk:)

This is a great looking facility, hope there's a team that can occupy it. There has to be a basketball league in Mexico right?

Yes there is a Basketball league, but is not that good, and i dont think that can fill an arena this big.

But no worry, there are a lot of concerts. At the National Auditorium (11,000) you have sometimes 6-7 back to back presentations,of the same artist to meet the demand. (the record is about 30 presentations in a row)
