“It’s an honor to be able to host the Liga MX Champions here at H-E-B Park and against our very own Rio Grande Valley FC Toros,” said Toros President Bert Garcia. “We have always been committed to bringing world class soccer to the Rio Grande Valley.”
The Toros inaugurated H-E-B Park against Liga MX’s Club de Futbol Monterrey on March 22, 2017. Since then, H-E-B Park has been host to numerous international teams including Club Tijuana, Tigres UANL, Tiburones Rojos de la Veracruz, Club Motagua, and Club Deportivo Guadalajara.

Club Santos Laguna returns to H-E-B Park for a second time this July, having faced off against fellow Liga MX club Chivas de Guadalajara at the state-of-the-art soccer specific stadium this past March. Earlier this month, Santos was crowned champion of Liga MX for the sixth time in its history after defeating Deportivo Toluca FC. Santos has also claimed the Copa MX, Campeón de Campeones and Interliga once apiece.
