Soccer is back but this time in a different format but still enjoyable. The Liga MX announced that a few players from each club team across the league will participate in FIFA 20 games that will be broadcasted live.
The pandemic has affected a large number of people across the globe and well with no sports to watch on tv the Liga MX will start to broadcast FIFA 20 tournaments within the 18 teams with three players from each club team. Each broadcast that owns the rights to the club teams will air the live video games, TV stations like, TV Azteca, Fox Sports, TUDN and ESPN are all part of the agreement.
Although no official statement has been made by the club teams on which players they will choose It would probably the top stars of the teams and well as well if they can dominate the video game Itself. Final details are still ongoing and could be made official on the next few days on how the tournament will undergo for the start date of Friday, April 3, 2020. Possibly the way the tournament can be handled will be that each club team will play as themselves, per se Andre-Pierre Gignac will play as Tigres facing off against Sebastian Cordova team, Club America and move forward in the tournament with three games each team.
In Spain, La Liga conducted the same measure of having a FIFA 20 tournament that ended up having Real Madrid as the champion that was being handled by the attacking midfielder, Marco Asensio. The final that took place via FIFA 20 had a well over 170,000 fans tunning in watching Asensio beat Leganes 4-1, which was being played by Aitor Ruibal.
It was an ongoing three-day event that captured much attention from their fans which is why the Liga MX is probably wanting to do the same activity to keep their fans satisfied during this pandemic that has kept many in lockdown with no sports. Also, It has been rumored that a few commentators could partake in the ongoing live video games of the Liga MX once the tournament is taken place.
The Liga MX has been shut down since March 15, where the last game that took place was the Clasico Joven and until further notice the Clausura 2020 has not had a projected start date as the pandemic is growing rapidly in Mexico.
