Liga MX announced in a press release that the Men’s and Women’s Closing 2020 Tournament was canceled and that it will have no champion.
“This Friday, May 22, 2020, the Extraordinary Assembly of the LIGA MX was held, taking vital decisions that allow us to ensure the health of all the people who make up the LIGA MX family and the integrity of the soccer industry.
“In recent weeks, permanent work meetings and talks have been held with the Health Sector of the Federal Government that would allow us to resume the Clausura 2020 Tournament with full responsibility, without putting any member of the soccer family in Mexico at risk (Players, Technical Bodies, Managers, Referees, Fans and the Media).
“However, the time of the contingency we are living has caused ever greater scheduling restrictions, which do not allow us to maintain competition without putting the members of this great family at risk. Therefore, in absolute unity, the Extraordinary Assembly of the LIGA MX agreed to conclude the Closing Tournament 2020 of the LIGA MX in its men’s and women’s branches, ”the statement said.
Regarding the CONCACAF Champions League 2021, the eligible Clubs will be Cruz Azul and León for being in first and second place in the general classification table of the Clausura 2020 Tournament at the time of suspension.
