Changes from 2010–11

On May 16, 2011, the General Assembly of the Primera División announced a format change to take effect from the 2011 Apertura onward. The first change was the elimination of groups in the First Stage. The top eight teams at the end of the First Stage would advance to the next round. The other change would affect the playoffs. Instead of a two-legged, single elimination tournament culminating in the finals, the eight teams in the next round would be placed into two groups of four. The four teams in each group will play against other in a double round-robin format. The top team in each group will advance to the Finals. However, on June 6, 2011, the Primera División Profesional's Operations Committee announced that the format change would only affect the elimination of groups in the First Stage, and that the playoffs would remain as they were. Therefore, the top eight teams at the end of the First Stage would advance to a two-legged elimination bracket.

Clubs

Following is the list of the eighteen teams participating this season. Necaxa was relegated to the Liga de Ascenso after accumulating the lowest coefficient over the past three seasons, ending its one-year stay in the league. They were replaced by Tijuana, the winner of the 2010–11 Liga de Ascenso season. This is Tijuana's first season in the Primera División.

Torneo Apertura

The 2011 Apertura was the first championship of the season. The Regular Season began on July 22, 2011 and ended on November 6, 2011. The playoffs began on November 19, 2011 and ended on December 11, 2011. Pumas were the defending champion

  • Both finalists qualify to the 2012–13 CONCACAF Champions League Group Stage. Note that Santos are already qualified to 2012-13 Champions League as the runners-up of the Apertura, and as they win the Clausura final, they earn the spot given to the Clausura Champion and relinquish the spot for the Apertura Runner-up to Guadalajara, the best record of the 2011 Apertura not already qualified.
