Barbarism, battle, rebellion and bloodbath. Those were some of the adjectives the international press used to describe what happened at Corregidora on the afternoon of March 5, when Querétaro fans attacked Atlas fans and sparked an invasion of the field by civilians who were looking for space to protect from the wave of attacks.
The conflict has spread around the world and made headlines in countries such as Australia, Sweden, France, Italy, Spain, Argentina, Uruguay, the United States and the United Kingdom, among others. The notes narrate criminal acts and some, like Spain’s Marca newspaper, asked, “Should Mexico lose the 2026 World Cup venue?”
“FIFA has always had Mexico as one of its main trading partners, being the first country in the world to organize the World Cup twice, in 1970 and 1986 (…) In 2026, Mexico plans to organize, along with the United States and Canada, the Cup The third world in its history, however, several incidents have seriously questioned the feasibility of giving this country the honor of organizing such an event. Mexico has been at the epicenter of the FIFA hurricane for several years due to several factors, all related to the fans that go to the stadiums “, this is what she posted Marca newspaper.
