Armando Archundiapresident of the Arbitration Commission of the Mexican Football Federationclarified the versions about an alleged sanction to Marco ‘The Cat’ Ortiz After the controversial final between America y Blue Cross of the Clausura 2024. This after the Mexican Nazarene had no activity in matchday 1 of the Aheight 2024.

Despite the controversy generated by a penalty not called in that match and rumors that Ortiz had bought a truck, Archundia was clear in his position during an exclusive interview with Francisco Javier Gonzalez for TUDN: ‘Marco Ortiz will not be sanctioned’. Assuring that his absence is scheduled for the first three days, which are used to give opportunities to young referees and consolidate the experience of new talents.

“They are going to speculate about why Marco Ortiz is not going to play, whether he was sanctioned, but that is not true. These are the first three days that we have spoken with the referees to give opportunities to the young and the new players and to support them with the experienced people,” said Archundia.

The head of the Arbitration Commission also stated that ‘‘The Cat’ Ortizwill continue to be part of the refereeing body, but will start the tournament acting as VAR or fourth official.

Same path as Adonai

During González’s interview with Archundia, the head of the Arbitration Commission recalled what happened with Adonai Escobedo after the final of the Opening 2023 where he was absent until the sixth round of the previous tournament, although in that case the referee had to remain away after having suffered an injury.
