FC Juarez (13-7-10), winners of the Apertura 2015 of the Ascenso MX league, are seeking a promotion to Liga MX, the premier soccer league in Mexico. The Bravos will play a home-and-home series on May 14 and 21 versus Club Necaxa for the chance to advance to the First Division.
Club Leon (9-5-3) out of Guanajuato, Mexico, currently ranks third in the Liga MX in the Clausura 2016. The team has won the Liga MX Primera Division title seven times, including as recently as Clausura 2014.
Club Leon’s fan base is an international one due in large part to their goalkeeper, William Yarbrough, a dual citizen of the United States and Mexico. A member of the United States national team, Yarbrough received his first call-up in March of 2015.
Other notable Club Leon players include Luis Montes from Juarez, Mauro Boselli, Argentina national team member and Josè Juan Vàsquez, a member of the Mexican national team.
