Big Soccer fellows: Here, the latest from the Mexican press. Loose translation. As always, in a hurry. The article was published today on Record. Guadalajara. - Ivar Sisniega, Guadalajara club executive president, explained the reasons why San Diego was chosen as the main option to become headquarters for Chivas USA in MLS. The officer stated that San Diego offer some advantages not found in other U.S. cities, being its closeness to Mexico and its Latin-American roots some of the factors that played in choosing the California city. “San Diego is attractive to us because, in the first place, does not have a MLS franchise, and we come with a new. That plays in our favor. Besides, after L.A. and New York, is the most important urban center (among Hispanics) not considering its closeness to the Mexican Border where Mexican people from those places, like Tijuana, can come to see the team. “Furthermore, in South California there is a big population of Mexican and Latino people who undoubtedly would support the team,” stated Sisniega, who did not exclude Houston as a second option. The officer stated there are still six points that must be met on behalf of Chivas and MLS, having a time frame of more than two month so Chivas USA can play next year. One factor would be the Tapatio team’s petition to have a greater number of foreign players as well as MLS participation with Chivas of Guadalajara. “We sent a letter of intention to MLS and depending on their response we will be able to know if we are going to participate next year. In this letter there are issues that have to do with our image and place to play. “And also, we ask that this team can have a greater number of foreign players, since we want more Mexican and Latin-American players because we want this to be a Hispanic team,” he said.
