Tournaments organised by dissident body Asociación Amateurs de Football (established in 1919) were named "Extra" in contrast with the "Intermedia" division by official Association. When both leagues merged in 1926, Segunda División became the second level again, and División Intermedia was moved to the third level of the league system. This lasted until 1932 when the Argentine Association eliminated two divisions (including División Intermedia) due to a restructuring of the system.
