A Mexican team will be playing in Mexico this summer, but the Altoona and Tennissee Soccer Clubs will not be part of the national team.
The Mexican Football Federation confirmed the news on Friday.
The Liga MX side’s stadium will be located in the Mexican city of San Fernando, and the club’s players will play there for the first time.
The Mexican Football Association announced the news during the annual congress of the Liga MX governing body, and in a statement.
“The LigaMX is a top club league with strong teams in Mexico and has long been one of the best leagues in the world,” the LigaMX said.
“As such, we believe that the league is well-suited for the purpose of supporting the Liga’s development.
We are grateful to the Liga for the opportunity to continue their relationship with the Liga and will continue to work with the governing body in order to help the league achieve its goal.”
The announcement was made during the league’s annual congress in San Fernando.
The announcement came a day after the Mexican government announced that the Liga will expand to 32 teams in 2018.
That includes a 12th club, the Tijuana Alumni Club.
