Changes from 2004Edit

Structural changesEdit

Starting with the 2004 season, the two relegated teams will be able to choose to play in the Segunda División or drop to their regional league as the Segunda División will now be played with non-capital teams. The number of first division teams dropped from 14 to 13.

Promotion and relegationEdit

Deportivo Wanka and GrauEstudiantes finished the 2004 season in 13th and 14th place, respectively, on the three-season average table and thus were relegated to their regional league. They were replaced by the champion of the 2004 Copa Perú Sport Áncash.
