Foro Sol is a sports and concerts venue built in 1993 inside the Hermanos Rodríguez racetrack in eastern Mexico City. It is located 10 minutes away from the Mexico City International Airport and is operated by Grupo CIE.

The venue was originally built just to be a place where to receive big music shows, first just known as the Autódromo, and which could accommodate up to 50,000 people. Since 2000, it has been used as a baseball stadium as well, because the only other major baseball stadium in Mexico City ("Parque del Seguro Social", formerly "Parque Delta") was demolished to build a mall.

It is home to the Diablos Rojos del México a Mexican Baseball League team, and will host Pool B of the 2009 World Baseball Classic from March 5 through 12, by|2009.

Its name comes from a popular beer brand of the Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma group .

Over the years, Foro Sol has been criticized for not being up to international standards of concert venues of similar size and capacity, being more a permanent improvised arena than a full fledged, well equipped stadium, and given the fact that ticket prices are the same or sometimes more expensive than better but similar venues around the world. For this reason, it is much preferred for Mexico City concerts to be carried out at the Auditorio Nacional, a world-class venue of international recognition, but of smaller capacity. The other concert venue being the Palacio de los Deportes (Sports Palace, yet another improvised concert arena from what was once the 1968 Olympic Games basketball arena) has earned the nickname "Palacio de los Rebotes" (Palace of Echoes) for its poor acoustics. Madonna will perform there in Sticky & Seet Tour on November 29 and 30 , 2008.
