Mexican football remains behind closed doors

Mexican football remains behind closed doors

All of Mexico's professional football games this weekend will again be played behind closed doors, even though other parts of the country are returning to normal following a shutdown to contain swine flu.
Mexico's 176 league games _ from the first to third division _ were shuttered last weekend, and three games around the capital were closed to fans the week before.
The Mexican football federation said Tuesday that the games would remain closed because government officials had not lifted all preventive measures to stop the spread of swine flu.
President Felipe Calderon said high schools and universities will reopen on Thursday and younger children will return to school on May 11.
