It just occured to me that it would be cool if Mexico had a tournament similar to the copa del Rey of spain. Most top leagues in Europe have it. In this tournament called lets say "Copa Azteca" The copa can be with 12 teams. Considering that with the exception of the Sudamericana, all the major tournaments such as Copa Libertadores and Concacaf champions cup, are played during the Clausura, the cup can take place during the Apertura. The teams participating in the Sudamericana would be excempt from participating. My vision consists of a 12 team tournament. Consisting of: 4 teams from 1st division which would be seeded in quarter finals. 6 teams from Primera A and 2 teams from Segunda will meat in Octavos The top 6 teams from Primera A would be seeded first in Octavos (Round of 16) the #6 would face #3, and #4 would face #5. The top 2 teams of the second division would have to face the top 2 teams from Primera A, with the #2 of Segunda against the #1 of Primera A, likewise the #2 of Primera A against the #1 of Segunda. After they pass the Octavos, the 4 remaining teams will meet the 4 teams from 1st division. They would be matched against each other according to their ranking. with the highest ranking 1st division team against the lowest ranked team of the other 4(should a segunda team make it, that team would be the lowest.) When seeding the 4 1st division clubs. the top two teams should be in opposite ends of the tournament table, so they would only be able to meet in the final. after the Quarter finals, the ranking system would no longer be used, and the teams would simply advance according to the table. I'm not familiar with the system of Segunda, I think that there are 5 five regions. the General table of the league should be the one used for the rankings, but if the regions never meet a league tournament between the top teams of each region should help provide the top two for the tournament. But like I said I dont know much about this league. Other than the fact that they have a team in Reynosa. If the tournament was to be held during the Clausura tournament, it would be easy to seed the teams according to the standings of the previous apertura tournament, but if its held during the Apertura, there is the issue of teams ascending and descending, the top team from Primera A would now be in Primera. This issue might also arise witht he top teams from Segunda. I would like to choose the 4 1st division teams according to their ranking in the tabla general, but I think that at first it should be the top 4 teams that agree to participate. ))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) The tounament would have to have a backing from one or more of the tv stations. That is the only way that the teams from Primera A, and specially the ones from Segunda would get sponsors for travel. Overall, this would help to inter-link the teams from the other divisions with the 1st division, thus increasing the level of play of the lower divisions. If the lower divisions become better, they would provide more prepared players for the 1st division. Also if the lower division becomes stronger, stronger teams would advance to the 1st division, thus putting more pressure on the 1st division clubs to be better. Overall, this is a win win situation. Should it ever happen. Any thoughts? Please give some constructive criticism, or any ideas to make this tournament better. And above, those insult the product of my imagination.
