LOS ANGELES–-(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–Dec. 30, 2003–Fox Sports
en Español will kick off the new year with a series of live doubleheaders
from the InterLiga competition, the new Copa Libertadores qualifying tournament
that will determine the two Mexican League soccer teams who qualify directly
for the 2004 Copa Toyota Libertadores.  Eight clubs have qualified to compete
in the InterLiga, to be played January 4-14 at venues in California and Texas:
Chivas, America, Toluca, Atlas, Santos, Morelia, Tigres and Atlante. Tigres
and Atlas will open the tournament on January 4 at 3:00 p.m. ET/noon PT from
Stagg Stadium in Stockton, California, and will be followed by the second match
between Toluca and Morelia. Fox Sports en Español will offer exclusive,
live telecasts of the complete InterLiga competition.

The eight teams will be divided into two groups of four teams each: Group A
with Toluca, Morelia, Chivas and Santos, and Group B with America, Atlante,
Tigres and Atlas. The eight teams participating in the InterLiga were selected
based on their performance during the Mexican League’s Apertura 2002 (fall-winter
season) and Clausura 2003 (spring-summer season).

The Copa Libertadores is one of the most important international club competitions
in the world, with 36 teams participating from South America and Mexico. Since
1998, Mexican clubs have competed against the Venezuelan clubs in these qualifying
matches, but they will have two direct berths to the tournament in 2004, and
three spots beginning in 2005.  Fox Sports en Español will once
again provide live and exclusive coverage of the complete 2004 Copa Toyota Libertadores
starting in February. For more information concerning the Spanish-language telecasts
of the InterLiga tournament, visit the Fox Sports en Español web site
