Pumas join Florida Cup after Arsenal & Inter forced out due to Covid

Published on: 23 July 2021

Pumas have agreed to join the Florida Cup on short notice after Arsenal and Inter pulled out, and they will play Everton next Wednesday.

The Gunners had several members of their organisation test positive for Covid-19 just before embarking on their pre-season jaunt across the Atlantic, and the Nerazzurri followed their lead in cancelling their U.S. plans as a precaution.

That left only Everton and Millonarios in the competition, but Pumas have agreed to lend a helping hand, ensuring the tournament will continue. Atletico Nacional of Colombia have also signed on to meet Millonarios next week.

Just hours after announcing their participation in the Florida Cup, Pumas said their Liga MX season-opening match on Sunday against Atlas would be played behind closed doors because of rising Covid-19 cases in the area.

However, their plans to head to the U.S. are, as of now, not considered to be in jeopardy.

After the clash with Everton, Pumas will return to Liga MX action to play Monterrey.
