The rescheduling of soccer matches, derived from violent acts, is nothing new in Mexico, and the postponement announced today of the Mazatlán-León games in the MX League and Dorados-Correcaminos in the Expansion League, lengthen this list that began to be written on August 20, 2011, during a duel between Saints and Morelia in the TSM.

That same year, but in July, the expansion league suspended the match between roadrunner Y atlantean that would be played in Ciudad Victoria, a town that was the scene of attacks and confrontations by criminal groups.
On October 17, 2019, in the so-called Culiacanazo, where it stopped and hours after Ovidio Guzmán was releasedthe Expansion League canceled the Dorados-Atlanteandue to the acts of violence that, as today, caused several cells at the end of the mouse guzmanas the son of the chapo guzman.

When were they suspended in Santos vs Morelia for acts of violence?
More than 11 years ago, it had to stop the game between Santos and Morelia in the TSM when minute 39 was running, due to shots outside the stadium. The horror images of the fans and the players went around the world.
That game was the beginning of some changes in the security measures in the stadiums, like the mesh removal between the stands and the field and the installation of ramps that lead directly to the fields, in case of an incident.
