FC Juarez Bravos Release Schedule For 2021 Apertura
Over this past holiday weekend, the Mexican Soccer Federation and Liga BBVA MX announced the schedule for the upcoming 2021 Apertura season. As has been the case for the last month, FC Juarez has all of sudden become the preseason media darlings in both Mexico as well as the United States after the club announced that they had hired Ricardo “Tuca” Ferretti as their head coach.
Needless to say, when the season begins in approximately 3 weeks time, that attention will continue to see if Ferretti, his staff and the new front office, led by new president Miguel Angel Garza, can deliver.
Of the 17-match regular season, the Bravos will have 8 home matches and 9 on the road. Six of the eight home matches for the Bravos are scheduled to take place on Fridays at 8pm MST (the other two matches will take place on a Wednesday and Tuesday).
The new season will begin on Thursday, July 22nd when Queretaro will host Club America. FC Juarez season opener will be one day later, on Friday July 23rd, when they host Toluca at Benito Juarez Olympic Stadium.
Notable home matches for the Bravos this upcoming season will be against Club America on Wednesday, August 18th. They will host Cruz Azul on Friday, September 10th, and Monterrey on Friday October 1st.
Notable away matches will be against Chivas de Guadalajara on Saturday, August 7th. Versus Pumas on Sunday, October 17th and against Ferretti’s old team Tigres on Saturday, November 6th. That match against Tigres will be the last match of the regular season.
Both TV Azteca and Televisa will remain as the official television networks to broadcast all FC Juarez matches in Mexico and TUDN/Televisa/Univision will broadcast their matches in the United States.
