Liga MX giant Club America is set to donate the gate proceeds from the Clasico Nacional against Chivas on Sept. 23 to help fund rescue efforts in the southern Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca, which were devastated by an earthquake last Thursday.

At least 96 people died as a result of the magnitude 8.1 earthquake with over 2.3 million affected by the natural disaster.

"Club America joins the effort of all Mexicas and announces that the income from ticket sales for the America against Chivas game in Estadio Azteca will be donated to help reconstruction works in the states of Chiapas and Oaxaca," read a statement from the Mexico City club.
