The CONCACAF Champions League endorses the broad domain of the teams of the MX League † It’s been a long time since a non-Mexican team came out on top.
The supremacy of the Mexican teams was overwhelming, with 35 titles to 18 runners-up, surpassing the champions of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Suriname, Guatemala, Trinidad and Tobago, Honduras, the United States and Haiti.
2005 was the last year that a non-Mexican tie won the tournament. At that point, Saprissa had made an acceptable entry by knocking out the Kansas City Wizards, now MLS’s Sporting Kansas City and Rayados de Monterrey, only to later defeat UNAM’s Pumas in the final in Ciudad Universitaria.
The MX League crowned again in 2021, again the Concacaf representative for the World Cup for clubs. However, the Pumas have once again put the Mexican teams on the line to maintain their dominance, as they are on the line with the Seattle Sounders of Major League Soccer in the United States.
