FIFA in favor of merger between MLS and Liga MX

While it already includes Canadian franchises, will the North American League (MLS) also one day integrate Mexican clubs, now engaged in Liga MX? This is the idea launched this Friday by Gianni Infantino, the president of the International Federation (FIFA), who was also favorable to this hypothesis. During a videoconference, the leader even said that this competition bringing together three nations could become « The best league in the world ».

“We have to have new ideas. «

“The potential of the United States and Mexico, each on their own, is enormous. But of course if you could bring them together it would be amazing, Infantino said. If we want the clubs to reach the highest level in the world, not just in Europe, of course we have to have new ideas. «  This had already been mentioned in December by Don Garber, the commissioner of the MLS. The latter had at the time indicated that such a prospect was  » far «  but that « The opportunity is great ».
