Get into Mexican Football with a Monarcas Morelia Shirt!
Are you looking to broaden your football fandom beyond the popular divisions like the English Premier League, the Spanish La Liga, or the German Bundesliga? Look no further than the Mexican Liga MX, an exciting division marking its 68th season this year. Soccer Box has recently added items such as the Monarcas Morelia football shirt to promote this oft-forgotten Mexican football league.
At Soccer Box, we currently have three variations of the Morelia soccer jersey. All three versions will be worn by the team throughout the 2014 – 2015 seasons. The Monarcas Morelia home jersey 2014 – 2015 is a yellow football shirt bearing a striking red sash of color. The jersey was designed by Joma and bears the logo of kit sponsor, Bridgestone.
Understanding the Liga MX Season
Before you become a Monarcas Morelia football shirt wearing fan, you will want to make sure you understand how the Mexican Liga MX season works. Unlike other football divisions around the world, the Mexican league is actually broken up into two separate seasons. The first of these championships, the Apertura, generally runs from mid-summer (sometime in July) to late fall (sometime in November). The second, the Clausura, begins in the New Year (January) and runs through May.
In other words, where other soccer leagues merely run a full season from summer to spring—with a break and transfer window in the meanwhile—Liga MX actually breaks apart the season during that window and gives teams a clean slate. As a result, there can be two different championship football clubs in Mexico in any given year.
Recent Monarchy History
Going into the latest incarnations of the Apertura and the Clausura, things were looking fairly positive for the Monarcas Morelia home jersey 2014 – 2015 and the team that wears it. Indeed, between 2013 and 2014, the Monarchy held together a fairly consistent performance.
The Apertura 2013 saw Morelia ascending to sixth place on the league table. The Clausura championship, meanwhile, was not as successful: the Monarchy fell just outside the top 10. Still, the squad ended the year with a strong record and was considered to be a good bet for success in the 2014 Apertura and the 2015 Clausura.
2014 – 2015 Disappointments
Unfortunately, though, Morelia has gotten off to a rough start in this fall’s Apertura. With 12 matches played thus far (out of an eventual 17), the club is at the very bottom of the league standings table, with a record of 1 win, 4 draws, and 7 losses.
Needless to say, the dismal nature of the Monarchy’s current record has been disheartening for the team’s biggest fans. This is especially true given the fact that it took Morelia until their fifth match of the season to even score a goal.
After draws with Toluca and Tijuana, a 2-0 home loss against Atlas, and a grisly 4-0 defeat at the hands of defending Apertura champs, Leon, Morelia finally got on the board in an away match with America. Even two goals weren’t enough to give Monarchy the edge, though, as the squad lost 3-2.
Morelia’s lone win so far this fall came against Universidad de Guadalajara, a team that was promoted to Liga MX from the second tier of Mexican soccer last spring. Even Universidad de Guadalajara is ahead of Morelia on the Apertura table, though, with 2 wins, 4 draws, and 6 losses.
The losses and draws are enough to make a few fans want to trade in their Monarcas Morelia home jersey 2014 – 2015 for a different club’s shirt. The great thing about Liga MX, though, is that teams always have two chances per year!
Morelia’s chances of making a comeback this fall unlikely at this point. Even if Morelia won the remaining five matches this year, the club still wouldn’t catch the current top team in the league: America, with 8 wins.
Luckily, though, things could look very different when January rolls around and brings the Clausura 2015. Help the Monarchy recover from this disastrous season with a new Monarcas Morelia football shirt, available now at Soccer Box.
