About Campeones Cup

Launched in 2018, Campeones Cup is an annual clash between the reigning MLS and LIGA MX Champions.

The 2023 edition of Campeones Cup was hosted by LAFC at BMO Stadium in Los Angeles on Wednesday, September 27. LAFC's opponent was Tigres UANL, the tradition-rich Mexican club that won Liga MX's Campeon de Campeones competition earlier that year. Following a 0-0 draw, Tigres UANL won the deciding penalty-kick shootout and left BMO Stadium with the trophy.

Campeones Cup, together with Leagues Cup, are part of a larger partnership between the two most important soccer leagues in North America, MLS and Liga MX. Launched in 2018, this partnership is rooted not only in the on-field rivalries that strengthen soccer in the region, but by a true spirit of collaboration, with a focus on sharing best practices and being a force for positive change in the local communities of both leagues.

MLS leads three wins to two in Campeones Cup history against Liga MX. Tigres UANL conquered Toronto FC in the inaugural 2018 edition; Atlanta United defeated Club América in the 2019 final; the Columbus Crew downed Cruz Azul in 2021; and New York City FC took the 2022 trophy by beating Atlas FC.
