Mexico Ascenso MX
Ascenso MX is the second level of professional football in Mexico of the Mexican football league system. The winner of the competition will be promoted to the MX League. The bottom team descends into Premier League (third division). It is currently sponsored by BBVA through its Mexican subsidiary BBVA Bancomer and is thus officially known as Ascenso BBVA MX.
Formerly known as Primera División A (First Division A), the league was renamed Liga de Ascenso in 2009. It was renamed Ascenso MX in 2012. Key Changes: Clubs do not require FMF certification to be promoted, and the competition no longer uses group phases.
In 1994, the Mexican Football Association decided to raise the second league to "Primera División A" (First League A) to improve the level of play on both the Primera and Primera A levels. The project was led by José Antonio García Rodríguez, then president of the then high-ranking Primera Division. He imagined the Segunda's best teams joining the new division, including teams from the United States (Los Angeles Salsa and San Jose Black Hawks wishing to become members). FIFA rejected the integration, but founded a new league with the best teams in the Segunda División. The opening season 1994-1995 started with 15 teams: Acapulco, Atlético Celaya, Atlético San Francisco, Atlético Yucatán, Caimanes de Tabasco, Coras de Tepic, Gallos de Aguascalientes, Halcones de Querétaro, Inter Tijuana, Irapuato, Reboceros de La Piedad, Marte, Pachuca, San Luis and Zacatepec. Cobras de Ciudad Juárez declined participation due to financial problems.
In 2006, the number of teams increased from 20 to 24 and was split geographically into two groups for the preliminary rounds (A and B).
In 2009, the main changes were: the name change from Primera División to Liga de Ascenso. The league was reduced to 17 teams and the groups eliminated. At the Apertura 2010, 18 teams took part. In 2012, the league was renamed Ascenso MX. Alebrijes de Oaxaca was the 16th team of Ascenso MX in 2013. Alebrijes was partly founded by the consolidation of Segunda División team Tecamachalco, which in 2012 had gained promotion to Ascenso MX, but the infrastructural requirements set by the Mexican Football Association did not meet. In August 2013, the Club Zacatepec was promoted to Ascenso MX instead of the descent of Pumas Morelos.
In the Ascenso MX 2011-2016 editions, no team dropped out of the Segunda División de México Liga Premier de Ascenso. On 6 June 2016, he returned for the season 2016/17 to relegation to the Segunda División de México Liga Premier de Ascenso. Loros UdeC and Murciélagos F.C. were relegated in the next two seasons. In the 2018/19 season Tampico Madero F.C. finished relegation to the bottom of the table, but the team remained in Ascenso MX after paying a deposit.
