Fans set to wear white for the Clásico between Chivas and América
‘El Súper Clásico’ will be played on Saturday in Guadalajara and both teams are inviting fans to wear white due to the bloody riots that occurred last weekend.
Another edition of Mexico’s biggest soccer rivalry will be played on Saturday as Chivas and Club América go head to head in Guadalajara. Both clubs are inviting fans to wear white. They want peace in the stadium after the riots that occurred last weekend between Querétaro and Atlas that left at least 26 people hospitalized.
No violence in the stadium
The two most popular clubs in Mexican soccer have been working side-by-side to send a message of peace using their social media accounts. They are using the hashtag #Clásicosincolores (The classic with no colors) in order to prevent another bloody incident on back-to-back weekends.
“We play together in this rivalry of hope. There we want to see a stadium with people wearing white in the stands to send a message of unity and peace. We want people to feel safe and that is why we ask them to wear white,” read the statement.
On Tuesday it was confirmed that Club Querétaro was going to play behind closed doors for a year and the club is up for sale. The owners of Querétaro have been banned for the next five years and the supporters’ group for three.
