Formed at the start of 2013 The Alebrijes de Oaxaca are a new team in Mexican football. Currently playing in two leagues – the Ascenso MX tournament and the COPA MX – they played their first games in July this year.
The team has its roots in the organisation Tecamachalco, formed in 2000 as a football school. The school had two main goals: generating top level athletes and nurturing both their physical and individual development. Tecamachalco obtained franchises in the third and second divisions and eventually an opportunity arose to form a team in Oaxaca – The Alebrijes.
The Alebrijes de Oaxaca have a great website featuring the team history, news, fixtures and player interviews. You can also find them on facebook.
If you want to go to a game the Alebrijes will be playing in the semi final of the COPA MX on the 23rd of October at Benito Juarez. You can find details of this and more upcoming games on the website.
