Pending Sanctions for the Apertura 2019

A new season means a clean slate, but a few players still have unserved suspensions to be dealt with.

The Disciplinary Committee report that Andrés Mosquera, Víctor Velázquez, Vladimir Loroña, and Rodrigo Noya all have one-game suspensions earned at the end of the Clausura 2019 season to be served.

On the other hand, Atlético San Luis will have Nicolás Ibáñez available for the start of the Apertura 2019 as his suspension was earned while playing in Ascenso MX before the club earned promotion; suspensions do not carry over from one league or competition to another, but rather must be served in the competition in which they were earned.
