Hockey is not even close to be an almost popular sport in Mexico, for example I live in the 2nd-3rd biggest city of the country and I know like 3 or 4 people who like hockey. Of course if any NHL teams come to play a preseason game our city arena will be at full capacity(17,000.00) but that's a different story.

Hockey in Mexico is a sport for the Medium Upper class and we can have an 8 team amateur league with cheap tickets and few attendance but that's it.

In Mexico is like this:

Soccer>>>>>>>Baseball>>>Football>>>Basketball>>>>> Everything else>>>>>Hockey.

Plus there's no promotion for the NHL in Mexico!!! We have NFL Mexico with games on Local and Cable T.V and you can see Monday Night games in several of our local Cinema theaters , MLB games on Cable & Local T.V, NBA en espaņol, but nothing on NHL.
