Did you know Mexico has a professional football league?

So I was scrolling through twitter today and saw this peculiar tweet.

 

 
I did some digging, and apparently the CFL has a deal with the Liga Futbol Americano to hold a draft of players from the professional Mexican football league. Now, I know Mexico had college football, but never did much searching beyond that. It started in 2016 and will expand to 10 teams this year for it's 4th year.

I'm not gonna embed every logo and uniform to save your eyes, but the Raptors Naucalpan might have the coolest helmet I've ever seen.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame actually put on a high school all-American game in Mexico City last month with kids from the United States, Canada and Mexico that included smaller partnerships with the NFL, CFL and this league to raise awareness for the game itself.
