First Leg of América-León Semifinal Moved

Originally scheduled for Wednesday night, the first leg of the semifinal series between América and León was rescheduled to Thursday due to the state of emergency in Mexico City caused by pollution due to brush fires in the area; the game has now been moved out of the area entirely at the recommendation of local authorities.

Rather than the Estadio Azteca, América will now “host” the first leg in Querétaro’s La Corregidora, located about 140 miles away.  Toluca’s Estadio Nemesio Diez, which is only about 40 miles away, was considered as the first option, but it too is in an area affected by the air pollution.

As it stands, the series is now scheduled as follows:

Thursday, May 16 – 9:30 PM – América vs León – Estadio La Corregidora

Sunday, May 19 – 9:00 PM – León vs América – Estadio Nou Camp
