Mexico kicked off its World Cup campaign on Tuesday with a 0-0 tie in its Group C showdown against Poland.
For diehard fans of El Tri in North Texas it was a chance to get out of the house and celebrate their team.
"I remember going to Mexico every four years and the World Cup was always on. I kinda grew up watching it since I was 6 years old," said Ruben Robleto.
A number of bars and restaurants in the area opened their doors for Mexico games.
"It's amazing, it brings people together. It brings the community together once every four years. It's a world event so it is super nice," said Vincent Chavez.
