General informationEdit

The name of the station refers to the adjacent Deportivo 18 de Marzo sports complex, and its logo represents a player of a pre-Columbian ball game.[2][3][4]

 
Metro Basílica logo

This station was previously known as Metro Basílica.[2] Its logo and name were taken from the Basílica de Guadalupe Roman Catholic shrine, located one kilometre east of this station. When the Metro authorities changed the name of Metro La Villa to Metro La Villa-Basílica (a station that is only two blocks far Basílica de Guadalupe) they also changed the name of Metro Basílica.

Metro Deportivo 18 de Marzo was originally to be named Metro Montevideo (from nearby Avenida Montevideo), according to early plans for Line 3, so this station has changed its name twice.[citation needed]

This station serves the Tepeyac Insurgentes and Lindavista neighbourhoods.[2] It offers a connection to Line 1 of the Mexico City Metrobús.[2][5] Service to this metro station along Metro Line 3 opened on 1 December 1979.[6] Service along Line 6 at the station started on 8 July 1986.[6]
