And after South America there is, as always, little left of the world. Mexico, never attracting much attention, was further dwarfed by NASL in terms of coverage. Regular championships continued, foreign players were imported from South America, but the better known names rarely came to play in Mexico and local players were going to play in USA as well. Out of sight, quietly, football concerned local public only. America (Mexico City) won the championship.

One of the big Mexican clubs, they were historically not big winners, but popular and usually performing well.

Who were the champions is hard to tell, but their fans surely were happy. The team had some South Americans who obviously helped and city rivals like Cruz Azul, Necaxa, UNAM ate dust. America’s victory was lost to the world, though.
