Parent organization

The Superliga Argentina de Fútbol,[3] (officially "Superliga Profesional del Fútbol Argentino") is an Argentine sports association responsible for administering the main professional league of Argentine football, the Primera División. The Superliga is contractually bound to the Argentine Football Association,[4] although it operates as an autonomous body and has its own statute.[1][5]

Apart of Primera División championships, the body also organises the Copa de la Superliga and Trofeo de Campeones,[6][7], two domestic cup competitions first held in 2019.[8]


In 2016, the Association approved the creation of a new entity, named "Superliga Argentina de Fútbol", which would take over the organisation of the two main leagues in Argentine football, Primera División and Primera B Nacional championships. The new entity was officially registered on November 4, 2016.[1] Nevertheless, in February 2017, the AFA modified its statute, giving Superliga rights to organise only the Primera División tournaments and excluding Primera B Nacional, which remained organised by the main body.[9]

The main football leagues of Europe (such as English Premier League or Spanish La Liga, organised by associations dedicated exclusively to that championships and operating as separate entities from their respective National Associations) served as inspiration for the creation of the Superliga.[10][11]

The 2016–17 Primera División championship was the last tournament organised by the AFA. From the 2017–18 season, the "Superliga Argentina" took over the organisation of Primera División championships since then on.[5] Therefore, the AFA focused on the lower divisions of Argentine league system (from Primera Nacional to Torneo Regional Federal and Primera D), including domestic cups and all the Argentina national teams.

The Superliga, through the Board of Directors and with the advice of the Competencies Management, is the only competent entity to establish all the obligations, guidelines and instructions that must be met by the participating clubs of Primera División on all aspects of the tournament, including those relating to protocol, commercial rights, advertising, press, accreditations.[12]

In February 2020, President of AFA Claudio Tapia stated that the Superliga had been established to position Argentine football as a product, but it failed in that purpose. As a result, AFA would take over the organisation of Primera División championships, according with Tapia's statement.[13] One month after those announcements, the president of the Superliga, Mariano Elizondo, resigned.[14]

The Superliga would be replaced by a similar body, named "Liga Profesional de Fútbol", directly linked to AFA and presided by Marcelo Tinelli.[2] It is expected that Superliga will be disolved once the 2020 edition of Copa de la Superliga Argentina finishes.[14]

Additional competitions

In 2018, the creation of a new competition, the "Copa de la Superliga Argentina" (Superliga Argentina Cup) was announced. It will be an official competition similar to domestic cup, with a format similar to Copa Argentina in a knock-out system with all the matches being held in neutral locations.[15]

The cup will be contested by teams participating in Primera División. The six best placed teams will directly qualify to the round of 16 while the 20 remaining will play a preliminary round. All the matches will be played in a two-legged series with the exception of the final.[16] The winning team will play the Copa Libertadores while the runner-up will be eligible for the Copa Sudamericana.[17]

The Trofeo de Campeones de la Superliga Argentina is an official cup organized by the Superliga Argentina de Fútbol (SAF).[18] The annual football match was played for the first time in 2019, being contested by the reigning champions of Primera División and Copa de la Superliga respectively.


The list of official competitions organized by Superliga Argentina de Fútbol since its creation in 2017 are:
