Argentine football league system

Argentine football league system

The Argentine football league system consists of two national divisions (Primera Division and Primera B Nacional), and a series of regionalized lower divisions. Below the Primera B Nacional, leagues are split between those for clubs directly affiliated to the Argentine Football Association (mainly clubs from Greater Buenos Aires, but also some from the rest of the Buenos Aires Province and the Santa Fe Province), and those affiliated indirectly through their local leagues to the Association (covering the rest of the country).
