Atlante, motivated to be the team that can break another “curse” in 2021

Atlante wants to be the first champion team at the Azulgrana Stadium, in the property’s 75-year history

In 2021, Blue Cross ended the streak of 23 years without being champion, Atlas ended the seven decades without winning a league title and now the Atlante hopes to join that group, by facing the challenge of being the first team champion at the Azulgrana Stadium, in 75 years of the property’s history.

“The truth is that we have thought about that situation, rather than thinking negatively, we think about it positively. I don’t think it’s the stadiums, I think work is what makes the champions. There have been 75 years since there is no champion there and hopefully we will be the first ”, says Emilio Escalante, the businessman who tries to recover the glory of the Atlante, to ESPN Digital.

No local team has been able to be crowned champion when the return final is played at the Azulgrana Stadium. The also known as “Sports City Stadium” has hosted three return finals. Two with Blue Cross, 1999 and 2009, and another one from Atlante, in 2020, with adverse results for the groups that used the enclosure as their home.

“(Laughter) No, no Shaman, we are believers and we like challenges, the entire coaching staff and players trust the work, we are going for the championship and returning this team to the first places,” admits Escalante.

Atlante, in the final against him Tampico Madero, is motivated by the possibility of breaking a “curse” as they did Atlas Y Blue Cross in 2021.
