This season, the “Fantasía” team of ESPN Deportes has completely redesigned the “Fantasía Desafío FutMex” game to make it more user-friendly and to give it a more attractive interface. Users will be able to be the coach and manager of their own team, build their own team with all the athletes that play in Mexico and can even negotiate trades as the tournament progresses. There is also the possibility of creating their own public or private league, compete with friends, and even with the commentators of Fútbol Picante. We invite you to visit “Desafío FutMex” here: http://desafiofutmex.espndeportes.com/.

“The 2011 Apertura Tournament is not to be missed. Pumas and Chivas have two solid and reliable teams; Santos, Monterrey, and Tigres will be competing with great lineups for the Northern supremacy; Cruz Azul and America are two big teams that have fallen behind and need to step up their game. Mexico has one of the continent’s most competitive leagues,” said ESPN Deportes’ Mexican soccer expert Ciro Procuna.

The broadcast of the matches will be accompanied by the analysis of our soccer experts in each of our studio shows: Fútbol Picante, Los Capitanes, SportsCenter, Nación ESPN, Cronómetro, Fuera de Juego, and Juego Cruzado.
