LIGA MX VIOLENCE: Mexican media reported on Sunday that during Saturday's Liga MX match between Guadalajara and Atlas, "eight hooligans were arrested and five supporters and two policemen badly injured as Guadalajara fans fought with police." In a "running battle" on Jalisco Stadium's "upper-south terraces lasting about 15 minutes," Mexican newspaper Record reported "police were hugely outnumbered and came off worse with two officers taken to hospital" (REUTERS, 3/23). Following the violence, Guadalajara City Council Secretary General Jesús Lomelí said that "Jalisco Stadium is closed." Lomelí: "The director of inspection and vigilance made this decision and based on regulations we will proceed with the closing of the stadium" (LA AFICION, 3/23).
