Mexican authorities are raffling off jailed drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s ritzy holdings, including multimillion-dollar mansions and a luxury box at Aztec Stadium, according to a report.

The “mega raffle,” scheduled for Sept. 15, will peddle 22 of the kingpin’s properties, valued at about $12.5 million, Mexico News Daily said.

Among the prizes up for sale is El Chapo’s 10,000-square-foot estate in Tlalpan, valued at nearly $4 million, which comes with nine bedrooms, an indoor pool, jacuzzis, a wine cellar and a party salon, the outlet said.

Also on the market is a more modest $200,000 home in Sinaloa, which features the bathtub from which the former drug lord dug his way to freedom to elude the Mexican navy in 2014.

Then there’s the 20-seat luxury box at Mexico City’s Aztec Stadium, described as being in “an excellent location” at the venue.

The box, valued at more than $1 million and good through 2065, is where former Mexican President Miguel de la Madrid handed Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona the World Cup trophy after Argentina’s victory in 1986, the paper said.

“Selling properties, residences, even a box that the government had in the Aztec Stadium, all of that is going to be delivered to the people,” Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said at a press conference last week. “And help purchase vaccines and medicine and given away as scholarships.”

Guzman, once one of the most notorious and elusive of Mexico’s drug kingpins, was extradited to the US and convicted in 2019 on numerous charges related to his sprawling drug trafficking enterprise.
