All about the Mexico Liga MX
Mexico Liga MX (Spanish pronunciation: [lia eme ekis]) (Liga BBVA MX for sponsorship reasons with BBVA through its Mexican subsidiary BBVA México) is Mexico's premier professional football league. The Mexican Football Federation administers the league, which currently has 18 teams and wants to add two more in the near future. Apertura, which begins in the summer, and Clausura, which begins in the winter, are the two competitions that comprise the season. The top four teams in the standings at the end of the regular season qualify for the liguilla ("mini-league," or "playoff"), while the following eight teams qualify for another playoff that decides the following four liguilla slots.

The Mexico MX is regarded as the most powerful in North America, and one of the most powerful in all of América. The league is now rated 20th in the world by the International Federation of Football History and Statistics and was rated 10th in the first decade of the twenty-first century (2001–2010). According to CONCACAF, the league draws the largest crowds of any football league in the Americas and the third largest crowds of any professional sports league in North America, behind only the National Football League and Major League Baseball, and ahead of the Canadian Football League, with an average attendance of 25,557 during the 2014–15 season. It is also the world's fourth most popular football league, after the Bundesliga in Germany, the Premier League in England, and La Liga in Spain.

There was no national football league in Mexico prior to the Liga Mayor, and football contests were limited to specific geographical areas. Although there were other regional divisions with great clubs, such as in Veracruz, Jalisco, and Bajo, the champions of the Primera Fuerza, a local league consisting of teams close and around Mexico City, were recognized as the top national competition. Many club owners wanted to keep their clubs as amateur as possible, even if they paid players under the table.
The growing popularity of football in Mexico would not prevent the country from establishing a unified professional football organization. In 1943, the professional national league was founded.
Many teams expressed interest in joining the Federación Mexicana de Ftbol Asociación (F.M.F.) after the establishment of the country's first professional league. The Liga Mayor will be formed by ten clubs, according to the F.M.F. (Major League). Six clubs from Mexico City's Primera Fuerza, two from the Liga Occidental, and two from the Liga Veracruzana formed the league.
- Primera Fuerza: América, Asturias, Atlante, Veracruz, Necaxa, and Marte.
- Liga Occidental De Jalisco: Atlas and Guadalajara.
- Liga Amateur de Veracruz: ADO and Moctezuma.
Many local teams suffered financial difficulties in the late 1950s and early 1960s, which were ascribed to a lack of international competitiveness by Mexican clubs and an unrewarding league system. As a result, clubs from Mexico that finished high in the league rankings couldn't afford to compete in continental tournaments like the Copa Libertadores.
The 1970 World Cup in Mexico was the first to be broadcast on a large scale. The F.M.F. modified the league system and created a playoff phase to select the national champion the season after the FIFA World Cup. This was done to pique attention and reward teams who finished towards the top of the standings.
Prior to the start of the 2012–13 season, Liga MX / Ascenso MX was formed to take over as the competition's organizational body from the Mexican Football Federation. The league recently announced a redesign, complete with a new logo.
3. Competition format
Liga MX has a single table of 18 clubs that compete in two yearly tournaments, with two champions being crowned each season. The season begins with the apertura (opening) tournament, which runs from July to December, and ends with the clausura (closing) tournament, which runs from January to May. This arrangement is consistent with other Latin American timetables and with FIFA's global football calendar, which "opens" in July/August and "closes" in April/May the following year.
Each tournament's top eight teams advance to the liguilla. If one of those clubs finishes bottom in the league's relegation standings (see below), the club that finished ninth in the tournament takes its spot.
The league had a two-tournament calendar from 1996 to 2002, with invierno (winter) and verano (summer) tournaments, but from 2002 to 2011, the 18 clubs were divided into three groups of six, with the top two teams from each group and the two best third-place teams qualifying for the liguilla. For each competition, the teams were placed in the same group. The event's qualification process lasted 17 weeks, with each side facing off against each other once every event in a home-and-away series across the course of both tournaments.
