In Mexico, bullfights are taking place in the world's largest arena for the first time since a court ban was lifted. The so-called "Fiesta Brava", as the bullfighting event is called in Spanish, will return to the Plaza México in the capital Mexico City from January 28th after a break of almost 600 days, the operator announced.
In June 2022, animal rights activists managed to temporarily stop the bullfights in the Mexican capital in court. However, the Supreme Court overturned the suspension. Opponents of bullfighting denounce the suffering and killing of animals. The Plaza México has more than 41,000 seats - the world-famous Las Ventas bullring in Madrid, however, only offers space for almost 24,000 spectators.
