Primera DivisiónEdit

The reunification of the Asociación Argentina de Football and the Federación Argentina de Football brought the creation of a championship of 25 teams. The tournament took a league format with each team playing the others once. San Lorenzo de Almagro debuted at Primera División after promoting the last year, which caused all the "big five" to meet in a championship for the first time.

The top two teams finished even on points, which necessitated a championship playoff, which was won by Racing Club.[1]
