Stats are from the regular season only

The 2015–16 Liga MX season was the 69th professional season of the top-flight football league in Mexico. The season was split into two championships—the Torneo Apertura and the Torneo Clausura—each in an identical format and each contested by the same eighteen teams.

Teams, stadiums, and personnel

The following eighteen teams competed this season. Universidad de Guadalajara was relegated to the Ascenso MX after accumulating the lowest coefficient last season. Leones Negros will be replaced by the 2015 Clausura Ascenso MX champion Dorados de Sinaloa, who won promotion after defeating the Apertura 2014 winner Necaxa in a promotion play-off.
