It was revealed that the Zorros will receive millions of dollars after the duel between Atlas vs Pachuca in the Liga MX grand final, a match in which the best team of the tournament will face the champion of the previous tournament.
More news about Atlas:
And from this duel, only one team will be able to win the title and will also win a considerable amount of money, which is the prize for the club that manages to emerge victorious from the grand final match.
However, this amount is not the only one that Diego Cocca's Zorros would obtain, as it seems that there is a sponsor that would seek to inject a considerable amount of money into the Liga MX champion.
How much would the Zorros get after the Atlas vs Pachuca match and where would it come from?
According to the Mexican press, the betting brand Grupo Caliente would be willing to inject a little more than 3 million, 500 thousand dollars into the Jalisco team to have its brand on the front of the Rojiblanco uniform.
Although the bookmaker already sponsors the team led by Diego Cocca, its brand is on the back of the Zorros' uniform, so for the next tournament, Jorge Hank Rhon's company would pay a very high sum to be on the front of the Atlas uniform.
And this amount would undoubtedly help Cocca and the board of directors to try to obtain reinforcements, since they won the championship last tournament, several teams are looking for several players from the club.
And it is difficult for Atlas to keep players of the level of Julio Furch or Julián Quiñones if they are sought after by teams with greater purchasing power, such as Club America, which has been trying to get Furch for several months.
Therefore, Grupo Caliente's contribution to Atlas would also mean a way for the Jalisco team, if any of its important players are taken away, to look for a replacement with the same level of quality as the players who may leave the club.
That is why the little more than 3 million, 500 thousand dollars that this sponsor would provide to the team, would help them more than the prize that the winner of the Liga MX takes home.
How much money does the winning team in Liga MX get?
Although the amount that the winning team of the Liga MX final is not disclosed to the public, it is known that the amount should be double that of the winner of the Copa MX, which is just over US$106,000.
Therefore, the winner of the tournament should receive just over US$200,000 for winning Liga MX.
