La Cofece “smears” MX’s opaque transaction and fines 17 clubs of 177.6 million pesos
Mexico City-The Federal Economic Competition Commission (Cofece) “acted” on the opaque trade of La Liga MX and fined 17 clubs, 8 individuals and the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) 177.6 million pesos.
He said that any other club interested in hiring a football player must first obtain permission from La Liga MX to do so. There are usually fees to pay.
In men’s football, Kofis found that the so-called “gentleman’s contract” was “inappropriate”. This agreement is between club managers and owners that prohibits players from freely moving when their contract is close to expiring or has expired. To another team.
The sanctioned clubs are the Americas, Cruz Azul, Cougars, Chivas, Atlas, Tigres, Monterrey, Santos, Tijuana, Necasa, Leon, Querétaro, Mona Elkas (now Mazatlan), Toluca, Pachuca, Puebla and Atlante.
These agreements were executed in the “draft”, which was a combination of transfers and hiring. Cofce determined that this behavior has been in place for at least ten consecutive years, from June 2008 through December 2018.
