Liga TDP has cancelled their regular season, and declared the standings at the time of conclusion, as the final regular season standings.
This means the FCD-MX has been declared the Group 12 champions!
Liga TDP has also declared that the league will resume in time for the start of the Liguilla (Promotion Playoffs!) and the seedings have already been determined.
The good news: FCD-MX finished as the #2 overall seed going into the Liguilla.
The bad news: The Liguilla is split in two, Zona A (groups 1-7) on one side of the bracket, and Zona B (groups 8-13) on the other side of the bracket. The top three teams in Liga TDP are all in the Zona B side of the bracket!
Liga TDP have given three potential start dates for the Promotion Playoffs. Those dates are May 13 & 14, or May 27 & 28, or June 10 & 11. All match ups are a two-legged series, that will be played home and away. Both the Zona A and Zona B winners will earn promotion, and will meet in the Liga TDP Final.
Liga TDP has also announced the 1st round pairings for the Promotion Playoffs. Before I post those match ups, let us first look at who FCD-MX has drawn as their dance partner.
FCD-MX, Group 12 (14-3-1, 50 gs, 12 ga) vs. Guaymas FC, Group 13 (6-4-8, 22 gs, 19 ga). When the playoffs actually get underway, I’ll write up a match up preview.
