President of CONMEBOL, Alexander Dominguezinvited Grupo Pachuca teams Pachukan և Leonto dispute Libertador Cups, a tournament Mexico has not played since 2016, which was invited this Tuesday, could be a source of hope for teams to return to the competition.
However, before teams raise their calls, there are several reasons why teams may or may not participate in a South American club tournament.
Because they can not.
The main problem with: MX League: It is the calendar set for the tournament with the Confederation of South America, as it has become a calendar year, not a football year. This means that the Mexican teams would be on full vacation when the championship is in its group stage, even being directly out.
Moreover, this was the main reason that MX League: He decided not to participate in the competition anymore.
Add to this the fact that the Aztec clubs have a bi-national tournament with MLS celebrating the League Cup, so the time to participate in more commitments will be reduced.
The same way, Leo could not play in the 2023 championship CONMEBOLWell, next year they have a commitment to play in the Concacaf Champions League, becoming the runners-up in last 2021 Open.
The Mexican teams have expressed a desire to return to the South American Championship, but the main obstacle is coming. Concacafas it does not allow its teams to play Copa Libertadores or Copa Sudamericana.
“If you are talking about competitions between clubs, I am not going to negotiate with clubs, they are discussions at the confederation level. For the club or the league to talk to the confederation, it’s not right for me, և we are focused on it. “Our Champions League,” said the FFA President Concacaf To Canadian Victor Montalyan, talking about the possibility of Mexican teams playing Liberators’ Cup.
Another challenge that Aztec teams have to play in the championship is the approval of the 10 Confederations of the Southern Confederation, which will allow: MX League: to return after an absence of seven years.
In the past, Mexican teams paid to participate in the South American Championship, and the economic rewards they received were lower than today.
Why else could they play?
