The Liga Premier is the third level of the Mexican football league system. Until the 1993-1994 season, the champion of the Segunda División had been promoted to the Primera División, but with the creation of the Primera 'A', now called Ascenso MX, the Segunda División became the third category in Mexico .
For the Apertura 2008 tournament, the Mexican Football Federation, with the approval of the chairmen of the clubs in the Second and Third Divisions, decided to change the format of the league dividing the number of teams into two divisions, the Liga Premier de Ascenso and the Liga de Nuevos Talentos .
The Serie A has 36 teams (18 Liga MX Reserve Teams and 18 Serie A Teams) divided into two groups. The Champion of Torneo Apertura played every year against the champion of the Torneo Clausura, in order to determine who will be promoted to the Ascenso MX. The case may arises where a team can win both tournaments in a season (Apertura and Clausura) and gain automatic promotion without having to play a promotion play-off game.
Meanwhile, the Serie B has 28 teams divided into 2 groups, of which the top 4 teams qualify from each zone. The resulting champion earns promotion to the Serie A. The case may arise where a team can win both tournaments in a season (Apertura and Clausura) and gain automatic promotion without having to play a promotion play-off game.
Below are listed the member clubs of the Serie A for the 2018-19 season.
