MEXICO CITY, May 23: Mexico’s top flight Liga MX cancelled its Clausura campaign with no title winner in a bid to protect the football community in the country.
Mexico has two championships per year, the Apertura and the Clausura, and the latter was halted by coronavirus in March with 10 of the 17 rounds of matches completed.
At a general meeting Liga MX decided to end the term “to make sure nobody in the football family, players, coaches, directors, referees, fans or media, get hurt”.
No start date for the next Apertura has been decided.
“Guidelines from the Ministry of Health will establish the date,” a statement said.
The move comes a day after attempts to restart the league were hampered when eight Santos Laguna players tested positive for coronavirus. – AFP
