Puebla pledges free beer if club loses to Juarez

PUEBLA -- Puebla fans who attend the club's Liga MX match against Juarez on Thursday will receive free beer if the home side fails to win, the club has announced.

The free beer would be distributed at the club's next home game on Matchday 9 (Sept. 13) against Atletico de San Luis.

"If we don't win on Thursday, you get a free beer in the match against @AtletideSanLuis!," read a tweet from Puebla's official Twitter account.

The Camoteros have not won in their past five matches and are second-to-bottom in the standings with only two points, having secured only a pair of draws thus far. The club hopes that tables will turn with the arrival of manager Juan Reynoso, and will be looking for their first victory in the 2019 Apertura season.

In their three home games this season, Puebla lost 3-1 to Xolos de Tijuana, drew with Chivas and suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Pachuca.

The announcement comes a week after officials at Estadio Azteca took legal action against vendors who were caught watering down beers at the famous stadium. Video showed the perpetrators filling part of the cup with liquid from the ice-filled bath the beers are stored in.
