The 2020 CONCACAF Champions League finished with Tigres UANL defeating Los Angeles FC 3-1 to win their first title in their history after losing three previous finals. The fourth time was the charm for the Liga MX side and now they will participate in the 2021 Club World Cup that is set to start on 1 February in Qatar.

The most successful club

The Liga MX teams have dominated the competition since CONCACAF implemented the new format in 2008 modelled on the UEFA Champions League and which replaced the CONCACAF Champions Cup. With the establishment of the new format 24 teams from 13 nations participated in the tournament, nine from North America, 12 from Central America and three from Caribbean leagues.

  • Club América - 7 titles (1977, 1987, 1990, 1992, 2006, 2015, 1016)
  • Cruz Azul - 6 titles (1969, 1970, 1971, 1996, 1997, 2014)
  • Pachuca - 5 titles (2002, 2007. 2008, 2010, 2017)
  • Monterrey CF - 4 titles (2011, 2012, 2013, 2019)
  • Saprissa - 3 titles (1993, 1995, 2005)
  • Pumas UNAM - 3 titles (1980, 1982, 1989)

Los Angeles Football Club made an impressive run in their debut in the Concachampions in 2020, by eliminating three Liga MX ‘power houses,’ but failed to beat Tigres in the final. LAFC wanted to be the first Major League Soccer to win the title under the new format, because Los Angeles Galaxy won it in 2000 and DC United in 1998.
