Leagues Cup- New North American Competition

Leagues Cup

Leagues Cup is 77 matches, 47 clubs. Four weeks, Three countries. Two leagues. One champion.
In a monumental new chapter for North American soccer, beginning in 2023, all of the clubs from the top two first division leagues in North America — Major League Soccer and LIGA MX — will compete in a completely re-imagined Leagues Cup: an annual, month-long tournament.

Both leagues will pause their respective seasons for one month during the summer to play Leagues Cup, showcasing the soccer infrastructure and capabilities in the region in the years leading into the 2026 FIFA World Cup in the U.S., Canada and Mexico — the first World Cup to feature 48 countries.

As the latest and most ambitious step in the growing partnership between MLS and LIGA MX to further elevate the special rivalry, sport and the confederation, Leagues Cup 2023 will make history as the first major soccer tournament to feature every club from a pair of top-flight leagues.

The Liga MX, officially known as the Liga BBVA MX for sponsorship reasons, is the top professional football division in Mexico, holding 2 tournaments per year. The league is considered the strongest in North America, and among the strongest in all of the Americas.

MLS has teams from the United States and Canada.
