Hello everyone. I know most won't care about this thread but I think this could be fresh new content and I would love to share with you my local club's season in the Mexican Liga de Ascenso (Promotion League) as we seek for the long awaited promotion back to First division. So welcome to: Veracruz Red Sharks 2012 First Division Quest. First of all I will explain you the league system. There are two tournaments played during the football year Apertura (2011) and Clausura (2012). Champions of both tournaments play each other in a two legged tie called Promotion Final in order to determine wich team will get promoted and play in the First Division the following season. The Apertura champions were Correcaminos UAT from Ciudad Victoria, Tamaulipas and they'll play against the Clausura winners in the Promotion Final, if they also win the Clausura Tournament they will gain automatic promotion. There are currently just 15 clubs in the league since Indios de Ciudad Juarez were kicked out of the League earlier this year due to financial reasons, so that means that no team will get relegated this year and that every team will have an off week when they were supposed to play against Indios. After regular season ends 7 teams qualify for the Playoffs. Playoffs are played in two legged ties with the team better placed during the regular season receiving the second leg at home. League leaders qualify directly fo the Semifinals and teams placed between 2nd and 7th will play in the Quarter-Finals to determine who'll join league leaders at the Semifinals. Apertura and Clausura champions will play each other on the Promotion final, of both champions the team with most points during both tournaments will have home advantage on the second leg. I hope you understood the rules, if not ask me and I will explain it again.
