"Historically, Mexican-Americans have always been huge Mexico soccer fans. It gets passed on by our culture," said club founder Sergio Tristan. "The USA soccer team is relatively new. So, there are a lot of people in my generation that, now that we have money in our pockets, we are going to travel with our team."
Marcos Mijares, a 42-year-old Atlanta resident, said he roots for Mexico even though he's lived in the United States for more than 10 years.
"For us, to root for Mexico is like eating tortillas," he said. "You've got to do it."
