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.
Well sports like baseball and football had to start from somewhere, right? Why not hockey?
