It is worth mentioning that Mazatlán will make its debut in Mexican soccer, the tournament will be a rehearsal prior to the start of the MX league to see how the protocols of healthy distance and coronavirus prevention work. This was mentioned by Ricardo Cortés, general director of health promotion of the federal government:
“Having decided on the part of the League to have this friendly short tournament with eight of the 18 teams in the League can serve as a good test of what it will mean to be reviewing our players, I say ours because I am a very soccer fan”
Because one of the participating teams has 8 positive cases, this team is Cruz Azul.
To carry out the cup, the necessary measures will be taken to spread the Covid-19. The transmission will be in charge of Televisa and TV Azteca, they are the only ones that can enter the facilities. The other media that do not have the right of transmission may not enter.
