Campeón de Campeones (Spanish: Champion of Champions) is an annual Mexican football competition established in 1942.

History[edit]

Traditional tournament[edit]

The tournament was established in 1942. The trophy was presented by the president of Mexico at the time, Manuel Ávila Camacho. From 1942 until 1995 the tournament was contested between the champion of the Primera and the winner of the Mexican Cup. Traditionally the single match (with an exception in 1968 and 1988 when two matches were played) to determine the "super champion" was held at the end of the season at a stadium in Mexico City.

If a team won both the league championship and the cup that year, they were awarded the title Campeonísimo with an automatic awarding of the trophy. To date this has only occurred on five occasions (León in 1949, Cruz Azul in 1969, Guadalajara in 1970, Puebla in 1990 and Necaxa in 1995).

New era[edit]

After 1995 the league championship was split into two shorter seasons Apertura and Clausura. Then in 1997 the Mexican Football Federation canceled the Mexican Cup. Due to these changes, the Campeón de Campeones tournament was postponed. The competition resumed in 2002-03 season; however, this time it was contested between the champions of Apertura and Clausura of the season. The tournament was held four times and was placed on hiatus again from 2007 to 2011.

In 2012, the rebranded Liga MX restarted the tournament once again. There was a friendly match contested between the champions of Liga MX (first division) and Ascenso MX (second division).[1][2] In 2013-14 season, the Liga MX stipulated that a Campeón de Campeones match could be contested between the champions of the Apertura 2013 and Copa MX Apertura 2013.[3]
