A total of 16 teams in the league, 4 more than the previous season, including 9 sides from the 2015 season, two relegated from the 2015 Torneo Descentralizado and five promoted from the 2015 Copa Perú.
The 2016 season was the first one were former Copa Sudamericana winners Cienciano were competing outside of the top tier since 1974. Sport Loreto was relegated to the Segunda Division after one year in the top tier. León de Huánuco refused to play in the 2016 Segunda Division and was relegated to the 2016 Copa Perú.
The teams which had been relegated from the Segunda División the previous season were Atlético Minero, and San Simón. San Simón was disabled mid-season and relegated to the Copa Perú for outstanding debts with the SAFAP.
Five Copa Perú teams were promoted: Cantolao, Alfredo Salinas, Unión Tarapoto, Sport Áncash and Cultural Santa Rosa. Cantolao was promoted as 2015 Copa Perú runner-up. Alfredo Salinas, Unión Tarapoto, Sport Áncash and Cultural Santa Rosa were invited to fill in the vacated spots after a strict financial analysis.

Rules for classification: 1) points; 2) goal difference; 3) number of goals scored; 4) head-to-head record; 5) drawing of lots
- Willy Serrato was docked a total of 4 points for outstanding debts with the SAFAP.
- Sport Boys was docked a total of 12 points for outstanding debts with the SAFAP.
- Torino was docked a total of 6 points for outstanding debts with the SAFAP.
Because Cantolao and Sport Ancash finished the regular season with the same number of points, a title play-off match will be played on neutral ground to decide the champion and owner of the 2017 Torneo Descentralizado berth.
