With Round 13 of Liga MX 2022 underway, soccer fans are asking themselves: why won't beer be sold in Mexican league soccer stadiums?
More news about Liga MX:
This provision by Mexican authorities went into effect today and has surprised many fans of the Mexican tournament who went to the stadiums today and realized that they will not have access to beer.
For this reason, beer will not be sold in Mexican league soccer stadiums
Because this Saturday, April 9, and Sunday, April 10, a recall vote will be held in Mexico, which seeks to decide whether the current president stays in office or leave, the sale of alcohol in stadiums has been banned.
Although this is not uncommon in Mexico, every time electoral events occur, such as votes to elect governors or legislators, or this one that will take place this weekend, the sale of alcohol is interrupted.
The vote to be held seeks to make the electorate decide whether the current president will remain in office or, if the people so decide, leave the presidency.
Which parties will be affected by the sale of alcohol?
For this Saturday, April 9, the games in which alcohol will not be sold will be: Atlético de San Luis vs León, Club América vs Juárez, Monterrey vs Santos, and the Toluca vs Chivas match.
On Sunday, the match affected by this measure will be Querétaro vs Tigres, in which the team led by Miguel Herrera will try to beat Hernán Cristante's Gallos Blancos to regain the lead in the competition.
So, in all the stadiums where these matches will be played, there will be no sale of alcoholic beverages as the National Electoral Institute (INE) will be holding the Mandate Revocation Consultation this Sunday, April 10.
And as is customary on other election days, the sale of alcohol will be interrupted.
However, this lack of alcohol is something that many families attending the stadiums have asked the authorities for.
Can the lack of alcohol in stadiums reduce violence in Mexican soccer stadiums?
This request from many families who go to Mexican soccer stadiums became even stronger after March 5, when the tragedy occurred at the Corregidora stadium.
On that day, during a match between Querétaro and Atlas, fans of the Gallos Blancos ambushed and violently assaulted the Zorros fans, leaving 26 injured, 3 of them seriously.
As a result of this same incident, Querétaro was punished to play all its matches in the current Liga MX 2022 behind closed doors and without spectators, so their match this afternoon against Tigres will be played in this manner.
