In its fourth edition, the 2022 Campeones Cup will feature the reigning MLS Cup champion NYCFC, against Atlas FC, LIGA MX’s Campeón de Campeones, which was determined last night in the city of Pachuca in the return leg of the 2022 Clausura Final. Atlas FC defeated Pachuca with a global score of 3-2 at Estadio Hidalgo, claiming back-to-back LIGA MX titles, and moves on as the LIGA MX representative in Campeones Cup. Atlas FC defeated Club Leon in December 2021 to win the 2021 Apertura season.

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. The partnership is rooted not only in the on-field rivalry, designed to strengthen the sport in the region, but by a true spirit of collaboration off it, with a focus on sharing best practices and on being a force for positive change in the local communities of both leagues.

MLS leads two wins to one in all-time Campeones Cup history against LIGA MX. Tigres UANL conquered Toronto FC in the inaugural 2018 edition, Atlanta United defeated Club América 3-2 in the exciting 2019 match, and the Columbus Crew resoundingly defeated Cruz Azul 2-0 in the 2021 edition.

Campeones Cup is sponsored by BODYARMOR, Buchanan’s, Crest and Dawn, and will be broadcast on Univision and ESPN2 in the United States and TUDN platforms in Mexico.
