The Mexican Super League (often shortened to LIMEFFE: Liga Mexicana de Futbol Femenil) is the top level women's football league in the Mexican football league system. The league was made as an attempt to help women's football grow in Mexico. The first nationwide league was established in 2007. Record champions are Morelia FC with four titles.

Competition format[edit]

The league is played in the Apertura and Clausura format, meaning two seasons are played each year. In the year's first half the Clausura and in the later half the Apertura. The league is divided into two groups, in 2016 for example there were 15 teams in each group. After the regular season, playoffs will be played between the best placed teams in each group. Four or eight teams advanced from each group in the past years. As of the 2016 Apertura eight teams advance from each group.[1]

The play-offs, including the final are played in two-legs. Also in the final there is no away goals rule applied and games tied on goals will go into extra-time.

History[edit]

On 28 September 2007, the Super Liga Femenil started with two games: America versus Guadalajara and Universidad de Guadalajara versus UNAM. [2]
