The original Arena Mexico opened on September 21st, 1933, which is taken as the start date for the EMLL promotion. That building was located next to what would become this Arena Mexico, the more famous of the two.

The current Arena Mexico building was opened on April 27, 1956. EMLL built this arena after the overflow crowd for the Black Shadow & El Santo mask match in Arena Coliseo.

Arena Mexico currently holds 16,800 fans for lucha libre shows. Originally, the building held 17,678 people.
