The resources are clearly different.
Club America is backed by communications giant Televisa and the players are handsomely paid.
The Dynamo are backed by a billionaire in Philip Anschutz but the league operates on a salary cap of 2.3 million dollars.
Yet the Dynamo got the 1-0 win over Club America last night at Robertson Stadium on a goal by Nate Jacqua.
Yes it was pre-season for Club America yet it is no excuse.
The Dynamo dominated CA in the second half as they fatigued and were it not for Armando Navarette in goal for Club America it could have been 3-0 . But here is the real point. Passion, pride, and games with an edge that ultimately will grow the sport.
Superliga is trying to brand itself as a the premier club tournament in Concacaf and know they can do it through the intense rivalry that is the U.S. and Mexico.
Word is that Concacaf is looking to re-group the Concacaf Champions Cup to make it more appealing.
Play of the game: Stuart Holden going to his left and hitting the perfect cross to Nate Jacqua who was completely un-marked at the back post. Next up for the Dynamo is Morelia on Sunday night who drew 1-1 with DC United on a late Diego Martinez goal.
Check those highlights out because Christian Gomez’s goal for DC was equally impressive. Striker Luis Landin will miss the game with the Dynamo Sunday after being ejected. Landin played with Pachuca in the Concacaf Champions Cup.
