The Mexico Golden Aztecs played in the 1969, and last, season of the Continental Football League.  This league was formed in 1965 and was aimed at being a minor league system for the NFL and AFL.  With the NFL playing the occasional preseason game in Mexico, it may not be that long before we see another American professional football league team playing south of the border.
