MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican soccer clubs Chivas and San Luis will be playing upcoming Copa Libertadores matches in Colombia, a move aimed at helping slow the swine flu outbreak in Mexico.

The governing body of South American soccer confirmed the change of venue for the matches Thursday. Both games will be played next Wednesday in Bogota.

The move will further deprive Mexican soccer fans of watching their favorite sport in person. Every professional soccer game in Mexico this weekend - 176 matches in all divisions - will be played without fans in an effort to slow the spread of swine flu, which is blamed for over 165 deaths in Mexico and one in the United States.
