River Plate won the Apertura 1997 and Vélez Sársfield won the Clausura 1998, while Gimnasia y Tiro de Salta and Deportivo Español were relegated with the worst points averages.

Permanent squad numbers were established as mandatory by the AFA, starting in the 1997 Apertura. As the rule did not specify the use of number "1" for goalkeepers exclusively, forward Silvio Carrario wore that number in Deportivo Español.[2]
