Second Division Mexican Side Estudiantes Tecos To Move From Guadalajara To Zacatecas
Mexican second division side Estudiantes Tecos will be moved by its owner, Mexican conglomerate Grupo Pachuca, from Guadalajara to the Mexican state of Zacatecas, according to Eduardo Espinosa Bautista of LA AFICION. Due to "low attendance at the club's stadium, among other factors, it will be moved to Zacatecas." The "club's nickname starting in the Apertura 2014 season will be the Mineros." The club's "top execs will remain the same." Zacatecas Governor Miguel Alonso "assured that his region will support the team to help it reach Liga MX." Grupo Pachuca President Jesús Martínez "explained the move" by pointing out the competition in Guadalajara with its three Liga MX sides: Chivas, Atlas and Universidad de Guadalajara. Martínez: "We had a lot of competition in Guadalajara and so we decided to move the franchise; we are moving there and the team will be there to stay" (LA AFICION, 5/28).
