Liga MX to honor victims of Paris attacks before weekend matches

Thursday November 19th, 2015

The Mexican League will honor the victims of last Friday’s attacks in Paris with a moment of silence before each of their weekend matches, the league announced Thursday.

The 22 players will gather at midfield, and the flag of France will be present.

The English Premier League also announced on Thursday that they would honor those lost in the attacks by singing the French national anthem before each of their weekend matches.

During last Friday’s attacks, multiple suicide bombers detonated outside Stade de France, where Germany and France were playing an international friendly.
