Historia viva, de un legado eterno. La Tapa destacada de Hoy Ver todas. Ricardo La Volpe. No other team besides them had won the league championship in these 36 years. However, they lost 1—0 in the two-legged first place playoffs and gave the title to Racing. The averaging system for relegations was implemented for the first time in the championship,  with Ferro Carril Oeste becoming the first team to be relegated under that system.
In , the single tournament format was abandoned and replaced by two championships in each year: the Metropolitano and the Nacional. The Metropolitano only allowed clubs competing the old tournament to participate, while the Nacional was open to teams from regional tournaments.
Between and , the Metropolitano and Nacional had gone through several format changes. In the first three years, the Metropolitano was a two-group championship, with the best two teams from each group competing the semi-finals of the knock-out stage. The six best teams of each group would advance to the Nacional, with four more teams coming from regional tournaments, to compete for the Nacional championship in a single round-robin format.
The seventh and eighth team of each group, alongside four teams from regional tournaments, played the Promocional tournament, which, in , was replaced by the Petit tournament contested without regional teams. The ninth to twelfth teams of each group entered the Reclasificatorio tournament to determine the relegating teams.
In , the format of the Metropolitano and Nacional underwent a reform. Since that year, and until , the Nacional had become a group tournament with playoffs, while the Metropolitano had been competed under a single or double round-robin system, except for the , and edition, which were also contested as a group tournament with playoffs.
Despite the format change in , teams still entered the Nacional championship, Petit tournament and Reclasificatorio tournament according to their rankings in the Metropolitano in that year. However, in , the tournaments were separated.
Teams did not enter the Nacional by finishing at the top ranks of Metropolitano. On the other hand, the Petit tournament and Reclasificatorio tournament were abandoned. The Metropolitano and Nacional became two truly individual tournaments.
Although the old system was reused in , the separation was instituted again in and was adopted throughout the remaining Metropolitano and Nacional era. The Metropolitano was always played first, until the order of the tournaments was reversed in After 20 years since the last time it had been used, the average system for relegations returned in the Metropolitano championship,  two years after San Lorenzo was relegated.
The first teams to be relegated on average were Racing and Nueva Chicago. These facts have led to speculation that the averaging system was instituted to minimize the chance of big teams being relegated. Traditionally, like other countries in Southern Hemisphere, football season began and ended according to the calendar year.
However, upon the reform, European style season was adopted for the first time among all the South American countries. Moreover, instead of holding two championships every year, only one double round-robin tournament was contested, like football leagues in Europe. The team topping the table at the end of season was crowned the champion. In —89 season, three points were given to match winners. If a draw occurred, penalty shootout was taken place and the winner of the shootout would get two points while the loser still had one.
This format was waived in the following season. Five years later, the single championship was split into two single-round tournaments, giving birth to the Apertura and Clausura arrangement. After , the practice was quickly abandoned, so that two champions on equal footing were crowned every season and no deciding game is played.
Originally, two points were given to match winners except the —90 season. In —96 , the rule was changed and three points were given for a win, one for a draw and none for a loss since then. The — season introduced the promotion and relegation system for the first time, where the two clubs placed 1st and 2nd within the four teams with the lowest average, had to play a two-leg series with teams from Primera B Nacional to keep their place in the division. For the —13 season, the Torneo Apertura and Clausura became "Torneo Inicial" and "Torneo Final," being disputed with the same format as before but proclaiming only one champion each season, unlike the last format that had two champions Apertura and Clausura, respectively.
The tournament would also include a team from the Primera B Metropolitana and one from the Torneo Argentino A, creating a team league. These changes were strongly opposed by the media and the people, and finally the tournament was called off. However, the project for the new format was successfully picked up starting from the season. Once Inicial and Final tournaments have finished, both winners had to play a match for the Copa Campeonato familiarly known as Superfinal.
Due to this the and seasons were played as single tournaments with only one champion per season, the Copa Campeonato has not been held since then. No teams were relegated at the end of the championship. In , the format switched to a tournament with 30 teams. Those 10 teams, with the addition of the 20 clubs currently participating in the top division, qualified to contest the next season. In February , President of AFA Claudio Tapia stated that the Superliga had been established to position Argentine football as a product, but it failed in that purpose.
The most successful club is River Plate , with 36 titles. The league attracts television audiences beyond South America and Spain.
