The 2016–17 Liga MX season was the 70th professional season of the top-flight football league in Mexico. The season is split into two championships—the Torneo Apertura and the Torneo Clausura—each in an identical format and each contested by the same eighteen teams. The fixtures were announced on 9 June 2016.[1]

Teams, stadiums, and personnel[edit]

The following eighteen teams are competing this season. Sinaloa was relegated to the Ascenso MX after accumulating the lowest coefficient last season. Sinaloa will be replaced by the 2016 Clausura Ascenso MX champion Necaxa, who won promotion after defeating the Apertura 2015 winner Juárez in a promotion play-off.

Positions by round[edit]

The table lists the positions of teams after each week of matches. In order to preserve chronological evolvements, any postponed matches are not included in the round at which they were originally scheduled, but added to the full round they were played immediately afterwards. For example, if a match is scheduled for matchday 13, but then postponed and played between days 16 and 17, it will be added to the standings for day 16.

Matches scheduled for Round 10 were postponed due to a strike called by the Asociación Mexicana de Árbitros (Mexican Referee's Association). Round 10 matches which were scheduled to take place between March 10 and March 12 were rescheduled to take place between April 11 and April 13. (between Rounds 13 and 14)
