Mexico 1922/23

Campeonato de Primera Fuerza de la Federación Mexicana de Football Association.

After the schism occurred in the 1919-20 season that caused the separation of the Real Club España from the Mexican League 
and that led to this club to form its own league named "Liga Nacional de Aficionados de Football".
After a period of 2 years in which both leagues competed independent tournaments that only managed to divide the fans 
and consequently kept them away from the stadiums, as well as the coverage of the press that practically disappeared 
soccer from the newspapers, on August 28, 1922, the officials of both leagues reconciled differences and reunified the 
tournament, which resulted in the creation of the "Federación Mexicana de Football Association", the first predecessor 
of the current "Federación Mexicana de Futbol".

As a request of RC España, the irregular titles of both (National and Mexican Leagues) of 1920-21 and 1921-22 
seasons were annulled.

All the teams from Mexico City.
