InterLiga Participants Announced

The Mexican Football Federation announced Monday the names of the eight teams that will play in the fifth annual InterLiga in January at four U.S. venues including Carson’s Home Depot Center.

InterLiga determines two of the four Mexican berths for the Copa Libertadores, the Latin American version of the UEFA Champions Leagues. It’s also a money-spinner for organizers, since it generally draws big crowds to Mexican-Americans starved for live Mexican futbol.

With CD Guadalajara and Pachuca already qualified for the Copa Libertadores, the eight teams playing in InterLiga area are Club America, Atlas, Toluca, Morelia, Cruz Azul, Pumas, Monterrey and San Luis.

Locally, the HDC will host a Jan. 9 doubleheader with Toluca playing Morelia and Atlas facing Club America.

The stadium also hosts the Jan. 12 finals.
