Mexican Women’s League on 2017

History will be made when the Mexican Women’s League debuts on September 2017. As of today, female practitioners of the sport lack a formal platform in which to compete inside Mexico and depended on other leagues to keep their level from going down.

Before such effort materializes, female futbol-soccer players are limited to play in an amateur league dependent of FEMEXFUT, and it only includes girls 16 years old and younger.

The announcement came from Liga MX’s president Enrique Bonilla on December 5 at a press conference held in Mexico City. According to him, the Mexican Women’s League has the objective of assisting in the growth of future futbol-soccer superstars.

Mexican Women’s League Regulations

Certain criteria have been defined so far. Each club will need to have at least 21 members and four of them require to be 17 years or younger. Additionally, the remaining players cannot be over the age of 23, excepto two slots which aren’t bound by such restrictions.

However, the first season of the Mexican Women’s League will not include foreign players. No announcement has been made about any foreign player regulation in the near future.

As it is to be expected, people have reacted positively to the change. Forward Charlyn Corral has previously expressed that local female futbol-soccer needed to change for the better. Of course, it didn’t take long for her opinion to be available on Twitter.

Tweet translation: The growth of Mexico’s female futbol-soccer is imminent, and it’s been done by us all. Congratulations to LIGAMX Femenil for this step forward!

 

To say these are great news would be an understatement, for regular clubs will be directly involved in the development of this new female division. FIFA’s calculations tell us that approximately 2 million girls play the sport in one way or another, and the Mexican Women’s League seems like the perfect opportunity for them to enjoy futbol-soccer.
