Liga MX[eedit | eedit soorce]

Liga MX, kent as the Primera División (First Diveesion) afore the 2012–13 saison, is the heichest level o Mexican fitbaw an consists o 18 clubs. Each calendar year is split inta twa short toornaments, the Apertura (Openin) an the Clausura (Closin). In each short toornament a club plays the ither 17 clubs ance. The hame team switches, dependin on the current short toornament.

A new champion is crouned for each short toornament throu a playaff seestem consistin o aicht teams. The top aicht clubs qualifee tae the playaffs. The clubs are arrangit afore each roond so that the heichest seeded team remainin aye plays the lawest seed remainin. The clubs play in a twa-leggit tee, wi ane match occurrin at each club's hame grund, an whichiver club haes the better aggregate score advances. If the twa clubs are tee'd efter baith legs in the quairterfeenals an semifeenals, the heicher seed advances automatically. In the feenals, if the twa clubs are tee'd efter baith legs twa 15 minute halves o extra time are addit. If the clubs are still tee'd efter extra time the champion is determined bi kicks frae the penalty mark.

Ane club is relegatit tae Ascenso MX each year (twa short toornaments). Tae determine the club tae be relegatit, the ratio o points tae gemmes is kept for each team. The club that haes the worst points tae gemmes ratio ower the previous three years (sax short toornaments) is relegatit tae Ascenso MX.
