The National Stadium of Tegucigalpa was built during the administration of Tiburcio Carías Andino. The stadium was the Honduras national football team's home stadium in FIFA World Cup qualification for many years. In 1981, the stadium was host to 6 CONCACAF nations (Honduras, Mexico, El Salvador, Canada, Haiti and Cuba) for qualifying matches for the 1982 World Cup, which saw Honduras qualify for a World Cup for the first time ever.
