LigaMx, the Mexican soccer league, will begin its playoffs tonight. 8 teams will be attempting to survive three playoff rounds so they can be crowned champions of Ligamx’s 2016 Apertura tournament. For those not familiar with Ligamx or wondering why Mexico has a tournament this late in the year, Mexico’s Ligamx has two tournaments each year instead one long tournament. The first tournament of the year is called the Apertura while the second tournament is called the Clausura. The playoffs will feature some entruiging matchups including The Superclasico of Chivas vs. America, upstarts Necaxa who were promoted just a season ago, classic teams like Club Leon & Pumas and the frenchman André-Pierre Gignac’s team Tigres. If you’re a fan of any of the teams that made the playoffs (disclaimer here: I’m a Club Leon fan!) or just a fan of Ligamx below are the streaming options for these exciting games.
The first leg of the two-leg round for each series will be all televised on Univision Deportes. That means America, Chivas, Leon, Tijuana, Pachuca, Necaxa, Pumas and Tigres fans will all be watching UDN over the next two nights. I’m assuming we can thanks the popularity of Telenovelas for Univision not broadcasting these games on their national network channel. Not to worry though as Univision Deportes will be broadcasting all of the games. Thankfully for sports cordcutters UDN is available through Sling and Fubo.tv so either of these two popular soccer streaming options is what you need to get your LigaMX soccer fix.

Although the games today and tomorrow night will only be available on UDN, it’s possible Univision might broadcast weekend games. If Univision carries weekend games on it’s national network you may be able to watch through an over the air antenna. Stay tuned to find if the games over the weekend will be on an over the air channel
