Will promotion-relegation return?
During the signing of the renewal of Liga MX and its main sponsor for three more years, the manager was asked if there are more teams in Liga MX to increase the number of 20 members and if the promotion returns- relegation.
“We will see what happens in the Assembly but there will be no changes in promotion. Cancún is a clear example of investment, infrastructure and championships. I spoke with Jeff (Luhnow) on Sunday, congratulations I am him and I think this is a very important area. How do we comply so that foreign investments come, not changing the rules. Creating an environment that is predictable for investors involved in Liga de Expansión or Liga MX. The element is that they know what the rules are. Consider that the differences in value between Liga de Expansión and Liga MX are 50 or 60 times the value of the teams, so that we work hard.
What he explained further is that investors are interested in Liga MX clubs and this issue will be addressed at the meeting of owners tentatively scheduled for December 19 by the Mexican Soccer Federation.
“We have already seen signs that there are new partners who want to enter Liga MX, we see it favorably, we hope it will come true, we hope there will be more transactions like this. This, obviously, is an element to the approval from the Assembly for the 19th, but that is the noise we want to make, with the appetite to buy Liga BBVA MX teams.
