America beats Guadalajara in first game shown in 3D

CO CITY (Reuters) – Excited Mexicans clutching buckets of popcorn and soft drinks in cinemas ducked whenever the ball was kicked toward them as they watched Sunday’s big game between America and Guadalajara in 3D.

At the packed Azteca, thousands more had a more traditional view of the match between the country’s two most popular teams which finished with a 1-0 victory to America after an early goal by Colombian Aquivaldo Mosquera.

“It was incredible,” said 25-year-old Claudia Fernandez. “I’d already seen films in this format, but watch a football match, never, and I don’t regret it because it’s much more exciting.”

The big-screen view was more electrifying than the stadium for some fans in Guadalajara and Monterrey, who were able to see the match in cinemas in 3D, a world first according to broadcasters Televisa, who plan a repeat for the Apertura championship final.
