Territorio Santos Modelo was inaugurated on November 11, 2009 with a game between Santos Laguna and Santos from Brazil.
The very first goal was scored by Matías Vuoso - who, coincidentally - scored the final goal in the old Corona Stadium.
Before the match, Ricky Martin performed in a spectacular show which also included the cheerleaders from the New Orleans Saints of the NFL.
The opening statement was offered by then-president of Mexico Felipe Calderón, joined by Coahuila Governor Humberto Moreira and then-FIFA president Joseph Blatter.
Pablo Montero sang the Mexican National Anthem, and Edson Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pelé, gave the first kick.
The complex was built in a record time of 18 months.
Territorio Santos Modelo spans 23 hectares, and includes the Parish of All Saints, which was a donation of Club Santos and Grupo Modelo to the Diocese of Torreón.
TSM is the only complex in Latin America that has a religious enclosure within its facilities.
The trophy hall includes all of the most important championships and sub-championships won over time by the first team and Santos' youth teams. It includes a replica trophy from the U17 World Cup, which was played in Mexico in 2011, with Estadio Corona being a host stadium during one of the most iconic games in Mexico national team history, where Julio Gomez scored a bicycle kick in the final seconds of the game, sending Mexico on.
The hall includes a photo gallery of emblematic club players and a short biogrophy of each, and serves as an entry way to the the Orlegi auditorium, where first team players are presented and important press conferences workshops, and congresses are held.
On the same leveal and opposite to the Orlegi auditorium is in-house travel agency Ascensa, which was created by Orlegi to facilitate transportation and hotel logistics for the entire institution. Likewise, Ascensa is available to the general public.
CAR (high performance center)
Composed of two category-2 synthetic grass fields endorsed by FIFA, three natural grass fields, and a pediment wall.
The clubhouse has the capacity to house 40 youth players who are provided with everything they need to become professional footballers - from a fully functional gym to a complete nutritional program tailored to each player's specific needs, an around-the-clock kitchen and cafeteria where players receive their meals: first team players are provided breakfast and lunch daily for before and after training and the players who live on campus receive breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Players also have access to a sports psychologist to help them develop and mentally prepare to be their best, and receive proper education for comprehensive preparation.
Social responsibility focusing on the environment (before entering the stadium)
TSM has a water treatment plant with a capacity of 640,000 liters of water, helping us to supply all our fields - including the main field. 530,000 liters of water are used daily.
TSM uses solar cells that help to heat the water in the dressing rooms and generate energy for the illumination of the complex.
