Eagles LFA[edit | edit source]
The team was founded in November 2015, with a view to participation in the inaugural season of the Liga de Fútbol Americano Profesional in February 2016. The name chosen for the team was the Eagles , because they wanted to attract the fans of the football team American university White Eagles of the IPN , one of the teams with more fans in the country.

Mexicas[edit | edit source]
In its first two seasons, the team had been directly administered by the LFA. Prior to the third season , the league franchised several of its teams, in the case of Eagles, on October 5, 2017 the franchise was acquired by Dr. Marco Antonio Conde. With the arrival of the new franchisee, Eagles was renamed Mexicas, the shield was also changed and the colors of the team were replaced: red and black, instead of red and white.
In their first season as Mexicas ( 2018 ) the players of the Mexicas team went on strike due to the lack of medical insurance and other necessary supplies for the professional practice of the sport, so their game corresponding to week 3 was suspended before Dinos.Later in March, the Mexicas team was fined $ 657,820.00 Mexican pesos (34,559.35 United States Dollar) for damages caused to the League, its TV partners, its press partners, the Dinos team , and fans attending the stadium for not having been presented to play. It was also determined that said party would not be reprogrammed and therefore Mexicas would lose it for forfeit. They won the Central Division championship after defeating Mayas 27-17 , which would allow them to qualify for the Tazón México, a game that took place on April 22, 2018 at the Blue Stadium , where Mexicas would win their first title in the LFA by beating Raptors 17-0
