'Worst club' Veracruz gets Liga MX boot amid financial struggles

Herc Gomez feels Club America's attacking threat makes them the odds on favourites in Liga MX's Liguilla.

Liga MX side Veracruz has been disaffiliated from Mexico's first division, the Mexican federation (FMF) announced on Thursday.

Unpaid wages, furious fans and 41 winless games: How Veracruz became the worst club in men's pro soccer

VERACRUZ, Mexico -- In a sense, it was the perfect backdrop for Veracruz' final home game of 2019 in Liga MX.

These were events that flew in the face of the idea that the Mexican game is modernizing and...

Liga MX club Veracruz players set to go on strike, miss Friday's match against Tigres

Veracruz players are threatening to strike over unpaid wages.

Players from Liga MX's last-placed side Veracruz are vowing to boycott Friday's game against Tigres due to unpaid wages stretching back months, it was confirmed on Wednesday.

The Liga MX club is without a league win in 39 games and the ownership has had problems paying wages, leading the players to take action.

"Footballers from the Tiburones Rojos del Veracruz have agreed not to play the next fixture of the 2019 Apertura against Tigres, a decision supported emphatically by the Mexican Footballers...
