Soccer Betting - Mexican First Division

History - Facts - Teams - Winners

The Mexican First Division is the premier football championship established by the Mexican Football Federation. The First Division is a successor of the Major League established in 1943. The league currently consists of eighteen teams.

There were other regional leagues such as the Liga Veracruzana, Liga Occidental and Liga del Bajío that had notable clubs. With the growing demand of football, there was an urgency in uniting all the local amateur leagues in Mexico to develop as a football nation. Prior to the Liga Mayor, football was disputed within geographical regions. The winners of the Primera Fuerza were considered national champions.

The first members of the league were founded by six clubs of the Primera Fuerza of Mexico City, two clubs from the Liga Occidental (Western League) and two members from the Liga Veracruzana (Veracruz League).
