The Apertura 2014 Copa MX was the 72nd staging of the Copa MX, the 45th staging in the professional era and the fifth tournament played since the 1996–97 edition.

This tournament started on July 29, 2014 and concluded in November 2014.[1]

Santos Laguna won their first title after defeating Puebla 4–2 on penalty kicks.

Participants Apertura 2014[edit]

This tournament featured the clubs from the Liga MX who did not participate in the 2014-15 CONCACAF Champions League (América, Cruz Azul, León and Pachuca)[2] All 14 Ascenso MX teams also participated in the tournament.

Tiebreakers[edit]

If two or more clubs are equal on points on completion of the group matches, the following criteria are applied to determine the rankings:[1]

  1. superior goal difference;
  2. higher number of goals scored;
  3. scores of the group matches played among the clubs in question;
  4. higher number of goals scored away in the group matches played among the clubs in question;
  5. best position in the Relegation table;
  6. fair play ranking;
  7. drawing of lots.

Group stage[edit]

Every group is composed by four clubs, two from Liga MX and two from Ascenso MX. Instead of a traditional robin-round schedule, the clubs will play in three two-legged "rounds", the last one being contested by clubs of the same league.

Each win gives a club 3 points, each draw gives 1 point. An extra point is awarded for every round won; a round is won by aggregated score, and if it is a tie, the extra point will be awarded to the team with higher number of goals scored away.[1]
