Club Deportivo Guadalajara is glad to announce that starting today, Edgar Mejia will assume as the new coach of Chivas Femenil. El ‘Chore’, who was in charge of the club's Third Division team, is someone fully identified with Chivas' culture and history, which is why we believe he is the perfect fit to stamp the Rojiblanco DNA on the Women's Rebaño Sagrado.

During his First Division career with Mexico's most popular and beloved side, el ‘Chore' experienced highly emotional and glorious moments, as he obtained the Apertura 2006 title, the first Chiverío championship in the Jorge Vergara (RIP) era. 

Furthermore, Edgar Mejia conquered Interliga 2009, which meant clinching a spot to Copa Libertadores, which resulted in a 2010 runner-up rank for Chivas and 'Chore'.

As coach of our #CanteraRojiblanca he was in charge of the Third Division. During that period, he amassed a record of 25 wins, 9 draws, and 9 defeats besides ranking second in the prestigious international competition Citta di Gradisca 2019, where he was awarded Best Coach.

Club Deportivo Guadalajara is confident about Edgar Mejia's deep love and passion for the institution. Moreover, his talent educator skills will be paramount for the Rebaño Sagrado to stand as a strong contender for Liga MX Femenil.
