Club Necaxa became your Ascenso MX champions and won the opportunity to play in a promotional playoff at the end of the season by defeating Coras Tepic in the final. It was a thrilling game that ended 4-4 in regular time. The game then went to penalties where Necaxa won 5-4.

It was a triumphant and heroic victory for Necaxa who went down to 10 men and 3-1 on the scoreline at one point in the game.

Necaxa would not surrender, however, and despite the numerical disadvantage, they would equalize with 6 minutes from time.

In extra time, Necaxa would take the lead, but only a penalty in the last minute from Coras Tepic would stop them from winning the championship in that moment.

In penalties, Coras would have their all-important 5th penalty blocked to give Necaxa the championship. Necaxa now await the Ascenso MX Clausura 2015 champion to determine who gets promoted to the Liga MX.
