The dates and location for the 2017 Campeón de Campeones and SuperCopa MX games have been announced, and for the second consecutive year the doubleheader will be played at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, the home of the LA Galaxy.
The games are scheduled for Sunday, July 16th, and tickets are available to the general public from www.axs.com and www.stubhubcenter.com beginning on April 20th.
The 2016-17 CONCACAF Champions League is just two games away from its conclusion, and for the 12th straight year, the tournament winner will be a Mexican team; the last non-Mexican team to lift the trophy was Costa Rica’s Saprissa in 2005.
This year’s CCL final pits Tigres UANL against Pachuca.
The Tuzos have reached the final four times, and they have won each time, in 2002, 2007, 2008, and 2009-10. Tigres UANL has never won; they reached the final last year, in the 2015-16 edition, but fell 4-1 to América.
The Clausura 2017 Ascenso MX season has wrapped up and the Liguilla begins this week, with eight teams competing for the league title and the spot in the promotion playoff that comes with it.
Apertura 2016 champions Dorados de Sinaloa have qualified for the postseason again, and should they win this season’s championship as well they will earn automatic promotion to Liga MX. Otherwise, they will face this season’s winner in the promotion playoff.
The match-ups and schedule are as follows; all times Eastern, home team listed first.
The Copa MX champion will be determined this Wednesday when Chivas de Guadalajara hosts Monarcas Morelia in the Gran Final.
Chivas has reached the final 11 times before, but has only won it three times; they finished runner-up on the other eight occasions – including last season, where they fell to Querétaro on penalties. Their most recent cup victory came in the Apertura 2015, where they defeated León 1-0.
The Clausura 2017 Copa MX is nearing its conclusion. There are four teams left, all from Liga MX, and they will compete in the semifinals this week.
The semifinals are single-elimination, with the winner of each game advancing to the Gran Final. Should a game be tied at the end of regulation, it will proceed directly to a penalty shootout (no extra time will be played).
