El Tri may be playing knockout games of the Gold Cup, but the new Liga MX and Ascenso MX season begins on Friday. There are big games throughout the fixture list, including on Friday, July 21, when Xolos de Tijuana open their home schedule against Cruz Azul, and on Saturday, July 22, when Liga MX title holders Chivas entertain Toluca.
Fans in the United States can also expect to see two Ascenso MX games this weekend. However, only six teams out of the seventeen taking part in the tournament are eligible to be promoted to Liga MX for the 2018-19 season due to minimum stadium capacity requirements–Dorados de Sinaloa, Leones Negros UDG, Atletico San Luis, Atlante, and FC Juarez.
All matches will be available to be streamed on FuboTV PRO and other Fubo packages, regardless of division this weekend. In addition, Liga MX matches this weekend can be streamed on the Univision Deportes app and Sling Latino.
Here is where you can catch all the action this weekend. All kickoff times are in Eastern DST (UTC -4). Ascenso MX matches are noted where they appear in the schedule. And all listings are valid for the U.S. only.
