Liga MX has announced that it has decided to end the season for the U20, U17, U15 and U13 teams because of the COVID-19 emergency. The league announced that they would have two cup tournaments to be held in Toluca for the U20 and U17 teams instead of trying to resume the league. There was no date for the tournament to be held, as it all depends on how the COVID-19 situation develops and if time permits it. The U15 and U13 leagues are not part of the tournament, thus ending their seasons. So far the men’s senior teams and Liga MX Femenil are still suspended but not cancelled completely.

Mexico, like the majority of the leagues around the world, has stopped because of the COVID-19 emergency. Liga MX stopped on March 15th after a weekend where seven of the nine games were played without attendance. Mexico has decided to cancel the tournament for their youth teams because of an agreement with the authorities, and the cup tournaments will be the only tournament given out. In the U20s, Monterrey was in first place followed by Santos, while in the U17 Tournament it was America who was in first place followed by their rivals Chivas. Liga MX announced that they will allow a period of training for the clubs to play the cup tournaments in Toluca, should the tournament be able to be held.
