World Eleven promoter once again made some waves in the Argentine media when he announced via Twitter that the Superclásico that was scheduled in Cancún at the end of May was have a change of venue.

"The Superclásico will be played at the legendary Estadio Azteca on May 31st. Tickets via Ticketmaster soon."

According to Tofoni, the move away from the state of Quintana Roo would be more significant for the match due to "how close the match was to the World Cup." This would also be symbolic as the Azteca was where Argentina last crowned themselves World Cup champs back in 1986. This would also be three days after Mexico would play at the same stadium against Israel prior to their participation in the World Cup in Brazil. "Many people asked us to have the match played ( at Azteca) because of the expectation a match of this level generates,"said Tofoni in an interview with Argentine sports daily Olé.

Although Tofoni talked about the consensus approval for the venue to be moved, not everyone in Mexico agrees with it. This move has set off alarms in Cancún as the promoter there, Ons Soccer Group, as now there are talks of them taking Tofoni and World Eleven to court for "unilaterally" taking his event to Mexico City. There could even be visits to court due to a breach of contract that the Mexican promoter has accusing the Argentine of.

This story still have lots of time to develop.
