Dallas City FC has reached a partnership agreement with Liga MX club Chiapas Jaguar F.C. and the clubs will be working together on various projects to benefit players and fans in North Texas and Chiapas.
In November of 2014, Dallas City FC CEO Jacob Tuygun and President Nicolas Ayala visited the touristic paradise and friendly State of Chiapas, where they met with Chiapas F.C. General Manager Sergio Bueno and the coaching staff.
The partnership will have various components for both clubs to benefit from it. The different lines of work will include friendly games for the U-20 and younger teams, mutual participation in international tournaments that the teams organize, player combines and tryouts in Dallas, marketing initiatives, and exchange of players for the overall development of young athletes for both clubs.
“Due to our geographic location this is a partnership that makes a lot of sense for both entities,” President of Dallas City FC Nicolas Ayala commented. “We have a lot of young talent in this area and a lot of players that have dual citizenship or can easily obtain the Mexican citizenship through their parents. In this way they could play in Mexico as a national player in the Mexican League. Commanded by President and Owner Carlos Hugo Lopez Chargoy, Chiapas F.C. is a club that has been doing a remarkable job for the past couple of seasons and they continue to grow as a club on and off the field. Sergio Bueno is more than just the head coach, he also plays the role of General Manager in the club with the assistance of Rene Isidoro Garcia and together they make a great team. They are very passionate about what they do and are very dedicated to the game of soccer and I have no doubt this would be the beginning of a great relationship with both clubs and a relationship that will benefit the sport here in the North Texas area.”
Chiapas F.C. competes in the Mexican 1st Division Liga MX as a club based in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Mexico. The team plays their home matches at the Estadio Victor Manuel Reyna. They are also known as Chiapas Jaguar.
