Mexico City's Proposed Legislation For Safety At Football Stadiums Opposed By Liga MX
Mexico's proposed "Law for Security at Sporting Events in the Federal District," which was introduced Tuesday, has encountered opposition from the Liga MX, according to LA AFICION. Liga MX President Decio de María and Liga MX Dir Enrique Bonilla "raised concerns that the proposed legislation portrays Liga MX as a generator of violence through football." Mexico City representative Eduardo Santillán said, "It has been a long, complex process. It is a law that has many implications and involves many players in the industry. We have found resistance from certain sectors, and in Liga MX they have been very critical and opposed to various points. Decio and also Bonilla are very stern, very reluctant. We had a meeting that was very intense on both sides. We clearly established our objectives. Sometimes we do not agree on certain points, but many of their observations were incorporated" (LA AFICION, 7/3).
