If you’re trying to find where to watch Liga MX on US TV, you’ve come to the right place.
Last updated: July 2, 2020
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, TUDN, UniMas, FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2, regional FOX Sports networks, ESPN Deportes and Galavision.
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 TUDN, while the other two are shown on Univision network.
On Sundays, there are typically 2-3 games televised.
FOX Sports has the English-language and Spanish-language rights to home games featuring Xolos (aka Club Tijuana) and Monterrey. Univision has the rights to the home games for all of the other teams in the league. ESPN Deportes typically shows 2-3 games each weekend that are also shown across one or more of the Univision channels.
FOX’s English-language home games featuring Xolos, Santos Laguna and Monterrey are aired either on FS1 or FS2, while the Spanish-language broadcasts from those games are on FOX Deportes.
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 TUDN, FOX Deportes, FS1, FS2, 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 TUDN and Univision.
Online, Liga MX, Copa MX and Supercopa MX games are featured online across a myriad of sites. Univision, UniMas and TUDN matches can be viewed on fuboTV, Sling TV and Univision Now. ESPN Deportes and ESPN3 games can be viewed on Sling Orange. Galavision games are on fuboTV.
Your best bet is to subscribe to fuboTV, which includes access to all of the Univision channels and FOX Sports channels so you have access to every single game.
When it comes to TV broadcasters acquiring rights to Liga MX, it works differently than other leagues in other countries. Rights to home games are sold on a club-by-club basis. Each club negotiates individual deals with local broadcasters, in several deals that range from $2 million per season for smaller teams to $15 million per season for one of the most popular teams such as Club América.

On radio, SiriusXM FC, the satellite radio provider’s soccer talk station, has teamed with TUDN to launch a weekly segment covering Mexican soccer called “El Three.” Every Thursday at 6pm ET, “Counter Attack” hosts Tony Meola & Brian Dunseth will be joined by a TUDN broadcaster to discuss the most prominent topics in Mexican soccer, including Liga MX and the Mexican national team.
