Major League Soccer (MLS) and LIGA MX have confirmed details for the 2022 Campeones Cup – the annual clash between the reigning MLS and Liga MX Champions.
New York City FC will host Campeones Cup on Wednesday, September 14 at Yankee Stadium in New York City (7:20 p.m. ET), playing the winner of LIGA MX’s Campeón de Campeones, which will take place this summer between Atlas FC (champion of the 2021 Apertura) and the winner of the 2022 Clausura regular season.
Tickets are on-sale now at NYCFC.com or Ticketmaster.com, and fans are encouraged to visit www.CampeonesCup.com to sign-up for the latest information and to be part of an exclusive presale opportunity.
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.
In this spirit and as has been the case in previous editions of Campeones Cup, MLS and LIGA MX also confirmed they will host a community service project in New York City to give back to the local community as part of Campeones Cup. Details of the event will be announced at a later date.
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 the Univision and ESPN2 in the United States and TUDN platforms in Mexico.
