Top-flight football could return in Mexico once the government lifts Coronavirus restrictions currently in place.

Mexico.- Liga MX, the top football league in Mexico, is hoping to restart operations in July.

According to ESPN, the 2020 Clausura would like to begin its season behind-closed-doors due to the Coronavirus pandemic preventing mass-gatherings of people.

Liga MX is expected to wait until the Mexico federal government allows schools to reopen before resuming games.

No final decision has been made yet, but it is thought that a decision will be made on the upcoming schedule next week.

The Clausura was suspended on March 15 after 10 rounds of matches in the Liga MX. The Ascenso MX season was then also cancelled.

Following a vote in the Mexican federation, promotion and relegation from the country’s top two divisions were suspended for six years, despite an outcry from lower league teams.

Sport has been struggling across North America in recent months due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Last week, Canada’s main football league sought a government bailout, while the NFL in the US has been forced to bring its international games back to the US.
