Querétaro and Celaya will play a fundraising friendly to support Ezequiel Orozco and Remigio Ochoa. Orozco, a Murciélagos player, and Ochoa, a physiotherapist for Celaya, both have cancer.
Murciélagos sent out a call on Friday seeking a Liga MX opponent for a fundraising friendly on behalf of “Cheque”; many players responded with offers to donate items for auction while Club América and Monterrey expressed interest in playing Murciélagos in a fundraiser.
Celaya then decided to support both Orozco and their own Ochoa with this friendly against Querétaro.
The game will be held on Wednesday, July 5th, at Celaya, with kickoff set for 9:15 PM Eastern.
The proceeds will go to support Orozco and Ochoa’s treatment and medical bills.
