De UCLA a Tigres, Maricarmen Reyes sigue brillando en Liga MX sin olvidar a su comunidad

“Obviamente no hubiera metido tantos goles”, declaró Reyes con una sonrisa, al hablar sobre su cambio de posición. “Fue algo que necesitabamos en ese momento, no teníamos a una número 9 y fui afortunada de estar saludable y jugar en esa posición. No pensé que iba ser campeona de goleo, fue algo que no me imaginé por ser la primera vez que juego aquí, pero viéndolo desde otra perspectiva, estoy contenta de que ganó mi equipo el campeonato”.

“Sé que hay tanto jugador bueno que no tiene la guía ad

This Mexican immigrant soccer agent wants women players to get more pay and less abuse

When Guillermo Zamarripa arrived in New York from Mexico as an international student, he knew very little English. However, he had a dream like many students from abroad: to find a job in the United States.

Zamarripa, who played in the UNAM Pumas basic forces before moving to the Big Apple, did not reach the first division of Mexican pro soccer, but what he did has helped to fulfill the dream of dozens of female college and professional soccer players.

The UFC beats Canelo and boxing to the punch on Mexican Independence Weekend

What started as a spontaneous event, thought up by UFC president Dana White, turned out to be a memorable night on Saturday in Las Vegas.

On a night usually reserved for boxing and Mexican champion Canelo Alvarez, the UFC took center stage with a full house of 18,700 fans filling T-Mobile Arena for the first Noche UFC event.

Alvarez waited too long to schedule his fight on Mexican Independence weekend, and the UFC stepped in for a card that was highlighted by Alexa Grasso defending her flyweig

The trainer that made a champion: Don Chepo Reynoso and Canelo Alvarez

Situated in a nondescript neighborhood of Guadalajara’s Antigua Penal neighborhood, Gimnasio Julián Magdaleno doesn’t look like much from the outside.

Inside at the end of a long hallway is an old boxing ring, and in one corner a small altar to the Virgen de Guadalupe with photos of Oscar “Chololo” Larios, the first champion trained by Don Chepo Reynoso decades ago.

At 70 years old, Don Chepo, doesn’t stop moving. His son Eddy Reynoso is Saúl “Canelo” Alvarez’s current trainer, but it was Don

Rebeca Landa is ready for her 'Monday Night' moment

Rebeca Landa remembers a text message she received in college that has been etched in her mind until this day.

“Women don’t talk about football,” it read. The message came from a well-known person and a fan of the sport she loved, which gave it even more of an impact.

“It didn’t square how someone who loved football would limit their own gender like that,” said Landa, a native of Puebla, Mexico, who at the time was a student at the Universidad de las Americas Puebla and was an announcer for th

What can MLS and Liga MX learn from the Leagues Cup?

The results don’t lie. The Liga MX could qualify only one of its teams for the semifinals of the League Cup 2023, a tournament that had many disadvantages for the Mexican team, but that also left clear the stubbornness of some of the officials involved with soccer in Mexico.

After a month of games played between the teams from Mexico and the United States, some conclusions can be clearly drawn.

For starters, the goal of the Leagues Cup was to create a competition in which both leagues would be

'Messimania' includes special empanadas and sky high ticket prices

Graciella Boltiansky is the owner of a Los Angeles business making empanadas. As an Argentinean and fan of Lionel Messi, there was little doubt that she would find a way to pay tribute to her idol before the Inter Miami match against LAFC on Sunday from BMO Stadium.

“For us Argentineans what he is doing is incredible,” said Boltiansky, owner of Nonna’s Empanadas. “The effect of what Messi is doing is impressive, not only as a player but as a person, a friend, a father. He has been touched by Go

Cristo Fernández is channeling his inner Dani Rojas

Life has shown Cristo Fernández that when one door closes, another one opens. And sometimes it happens in the most unexpected ways.

Fernández has seen that adage play out up close as his dreams of playing professional soccer were promising, playing on the developmental teams of the Tecos of the Liga MX at 15 years old. By 2014, he was playing first-team soccer with Guayama FC in Puerto Rico before injuries began derailing his playing career. It was at that point that his parents urged Fernández
