The Clausura 2019 Liga MX season is set to begin just 19 days after the Gran Final of the Apertura 2018 season. That quick turnaround led to the reigning champions, América, requesting – and receiving – a postponement of their Jornada 1 match against Necaxa.
The other 15 teams will get their season underway beginning Friday, January 4th, with Morelia vs Toluca kicking off the Clausura.
The regular season will wrap up on May 5th, with Santos Laguna vs Pumas UNAM closing out the Clausura. The playoffs will begin on May 8th, and the two legs of the Gran Final are scheduled for May 23rd and 26th.
