Where to watch Liga MX on US TV and streaming
If you’re trying to find where to watch Liga MX on US TV, you’ve come to the right place.
Out of all of the soccer leagues shown on US television, Liga MX has the greatest number of viewers each week. There are three reasons the top-flight Mexican league has proven so popular. First, the large number of Mexican-Americans and Mexicans living in the United States. Second, many of the major games are featured on the over-the-air Univision network, which makes the league more accessible than others. And third and finally, Liga MX is an entertaining league to watch.
Where to watch Liga MX on US TV
To find Liga MX games on US television, the matches are spread across a number of networks: Univision, Univision Deportes, UniMas, NBC Universo, Galavision and Azteca America.
There are typically 1-2 matches played on a Friday night followed by the majority of the games on a Saturday. Univision features 6 hours of live Liga MX games every Saturday night in primetime. The three back-to-back-to-back matches are shown live on television. The first game every Saturday night is on Univision Deportes, while the other two are shown on Univision network.
On Sundays, there are typically 2-3 games televised. The matches featuring Club America and Guadalajara, Mexico’s two most popular teams, are the ones that generate the most significant TV viewing figures.
Liga MX is split into two halves of a season — an Apertura (opening half of the season) and a Clausura (closing half of the season). The Apertura starts in the summer, while the Clausura starts in the winter. At the close of both the Apertura and Clausura seasons, the 8 best placed teams compete in a playoff called a liguilla to determine who is the champion of that half of the season. Thus, Liga MX has two champions each year — an Apertura liguilla playoff winner as well as a Clausura liguilla playoff champion.
Copa MX games, Mexico’s cup competition, are televised on weeknights across Univision Deportes, ESPN Deportes and Galavision.
Last but not least, the Supercopa MX tournament features the winners of the Apertura and Clausura Copa MX. The winners qualify as Mexico’s third berth into the following year’s Copa Libertadores, entering in the first stage of the tournament. Many of the Supercopa MX matches are shown across Univision Deportes and Univision.
