LiguillaEdit

The qualified teams play two games against each other on a home-and-away basis. The winner of each match up is determined by aggregate score.

The teams were seeded two to seven in the quarterfinals, and the winners are joined by the top-ranked team in the semi-finals. The teams are re-seeded one to four in the semifinals, depending on their position in the general table. The higher seeded teams play on their home field during the second leg.

  Quarterfinals     Semifinals     Finals
                                       
  4   León 1 2 3    
  5   Irapuato 0 0 0

      3   Neza 2 1 3  
  3   Neza 1 2 3    
  6   Necaxa 0 2 2  
  • If the two teams are tied after both legs, the higher seeded team advances.
  • Teams are re-seeded every round.
  • The winner qualify to the playoff match vs the Clausura 2012 winner. However, if the winner is the same in both tournaments, they would be the team promoted to the 2012–13 Mexican Primera División season without playing the Promotional Final
