A total of 15 teams played in the league, one less than the previous season, including 12 sides from the 2016 season, two relegated from the 2016 Torneo Descentralizado and one promoted from the 2016 Copa Perú.
Universidad César Vallejo returns to the Second Division after an eight-year spell in the top flight. In turn, Defensor La Bocana was relegated to the Segunda Division after a short spell of one year. Hualgayoc was promoted as the 2016 Copa Perú runner-up.
The teams which had been relegated from the Segunda División the previous season were Unión Tarapoto, who were relegated mid-season, and Atlético Torino. Alianza Universidad withdrew before the start of the season and was relegated to the Copa Perú. Kola San Martín, Deportivo Garcilaso, and León de Huánuco expressed interest in taking Alianza Universidad's slot in the tournament. Leon de Huanuco's appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to return to the first division was denied and the Peruvian Football Federation relegated them to the 2017 Copa Perú's departmental stage. In the end, the Federation also decided to play the tournament with only 15 teams.
