The Supercopa MX (English: Supercup MX) is a Mexican football championship contested by the winners of the Apertura and Clausura Copa MX.

History[edit]

In June 2013 Liga MX president Decio De María announced the winners of Apertura and Clausura Copa MX will face each other and the winner will qualify to the following year's Copa Libertadores as "Mexico 3".[1]

On June 20, 2014 it was announced the two teams would face each other in a two-legged home-and-away series called SuperCopa MX.[2]

The 2015 edition SuperCopa MX was a single match at a neutral venue, Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, United States, making Mexico the fourth nation (after Italy, France and Turkey) and first North American nation to stage its Super Cup abroad.[3]

  1. ^ Santos Laguna won the Apertura 2014 Copa MX. However, they also won the Clausura 2015 Liga MX, and thus qualified for the 2015 Campeón de Campeones. They were replaced by the Supercopa MX title holders, Morelia.
  2. ^ Guadalajara won the Clausura 2017 Copa MX. However, they also won the Clausura 2017 Liga MX, and thus qualified for the 2017 Campeón de Campeones. Since Guadalajara were also the Supercopa MX title holders, they were replaced by América, who were the team that accumulated the most aggregate points in Copa MX that was not already playing in either the Campeón de Campeones or Supercopa MX.
