“Soccer Culture”

The Mexican Soccer Federation was founded on August 23, 1927 by Humberto Garza Ramo. Here is the beginning of a new culture, the soccer culture.

This culture began with the team of Pachuca in 1900, since this one was the first professional team of soccer in Mexico. With this began the first shock of passions when in 1902, the first championship happened between Orizaba Athletic Club, Pachuca A.C. and el Reforma A.C.

But the best thing was when the first Mexican Selection of Soccer was formed in 1923, because Mexican people were leaving the rivalries that they had between the teams, to form a team that would represent Mexico and then this team had his first participation in an international event in 1928 in Amsterdam against Spain.

With this, Mexican soccer began to grow, since they were joining the league, teams like America, Asturias, Atlante, España, Marte and Necaxa, where big figures and big passions went out, returning to the soccer as the most important culture of those times.

Now the Mexican Soccer Federation is constituted by four professional divisions: The First Professional Division, League of Ascent, The Second and Third Division. All the leagues are important, but the most important is the First Professional Division that possesses 18 clubs like: Cruz Azul, Toluca, Chivas, America, Pachuca, Santos, Pumas and others clubs, that are divide in three groups and the League of Ascent, with 17 clubs.

Here at the end of the two tournaments the two best soccer teams, have a match to decide who goes to the first professional division, but right now, the thing that has increased our soccer culture, are the tournaments between Sub-20 and Sub-17, where the young men who take part, might manage to be professional players.

For me, soccer is very important, since I had sacrificed my relationship with my girlfriend, homework, school and family events, to play soccer and maybe I seem rare to you but for me it is a live style, since I love soccer.

When I was playing in middle school at the ITESM, I was one on one against the goalkeeper and then, when I was ready to shoot, the adversary came and pushed me back and as a consequence, when I fell down, my shoulder was obstructed and my body continued in movement. Then my shoulder was broken and in a championship in the city of Chihuahua, the defense put his shoes in my right knee and this hurt my knee, but the adrenaline that I had in those moments was so much, that I got up, without caring that my shoulder was broken or my knee was wrong, I continued playing, until the game ended!

Soccer is considered to be a culture, because soccer was founded by our ancestors and then was passed from generation to generation.

For example: when a child is born and when he or she sees ball, he or she only wants to kick it and when he or she grows, the first thing that they want to do is to play soccer and for me this is true, since I was born in a soccer players family.

“This Culture is not about business, it is about passion.” 

 

Soccer in Mexico November 14, 2009

Currently, in Mexico the entertainment is really good, but it has some bad things like the publicity. It is not an interference in our country because we have a lot of things with a lot of entertainment like the music, sports, TV, concerts, music reviews, Mexican movie reviews, etc. In this work I want to talk about one topic that very important and interesting for me, this topic is one of my pasion life and it is SOCCER. Soccer is a wonderul sport because in this sport soccer players can play with the soccer ball as they wish because they can maneuver with the ball a lot of times and they can run along the field with the ball doing things they thought were impossible. In soccer games we can see a lot of famous soccer players that make a lot of money.

In this sport soccer players are two teams of eleven players. The players who are in the field are the goalkeeper, the person who makes it impossible to make a goal. The next position in the field are the soccer defenses. These are players who do not let the other team have the ball. The next soccer players in the field are the soccer mediums who are people who like to move the ball all over the field because they are so agile and they are so smart because they know how and where they need to move the ball. The last position in soccer is the front soccer players, who are people that put the ball in the opposite goal. They need to shoot the ball in the other goal because with these goals the teams can win.

There are a lot of teams in Mexico like the Guadalajara, Cruz Azul, América, Toluca, Pachuca, Indios, Puebla, Queretaro, Santos,  San Luis,  Atlas, Monterrey, Morelia, Jaguares, Tigres, Atlante, Estudiantes and Pumas. Some of  these teams are so famous for each type of game. Others are so interesting because of the history they have but all of these teams win with one thing in common: they are clean games and the people that go to see the games support them.

I like this sport a lot because it helps the young people , and this is a good way to stay healthy a lot of years. With soccer as entertainment it is great because people can go to the staudiums to support our teams and we can be with our families in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We can also see our teams when the are the champions in the tournament in Mexico and we can be so happy or sometimes so sad when our team loses the tournament or some importants games.

The 1 division of the Mexican football league was founded in 1943 with only 6 teams like America, Necaxa, Atlante, Asturias, Real Club España y Deportivo Marte, but now it  is the most important professional Mexican soccer league and this league has 18 clubs, which are divided in three groups. During the year there are two tournaments Closing and Opening, before named summer and hibernate. After they finish the 17 games, there is a small tournament, where  the best 2 of every group and also the best 3 places are classified.

Las Chivas del Guadalajara are the team with the most championships, since they have 11, then America with 10, then Toluca with 9 and then Cruz Azul with 8 titles. Between these teams the classic that are the most important are the Young man Classic, that is between América and Cruz Azulbut the most important is The Classic one of Classics that is between América and Chivas.

But not everything is good, because the teams that don’t win are at a risk of descending to the asceding league and with this other team have the opportunity to ascend to the first division and the team that ascend it cannot relax, because it has to win the majority of his matches, to be able to be saved from the decrease.

Also there are individual trophies, such as the best player of the year and also the player that makes more goals during the tournament.

Nowadays the champion is Pumas that obtains its 6th  title and the team that ascended were Gallos Blancos de Queretaro.
