Season 1929
1928 Argentina 1930

1929 saw the 35 teams that formed the Primera División divided into two groups. The top 2 of each group qualified for the final stages of the tournament, which was eventually won by Gimnasia y Esgrima (LP).

The season was marred by mass abandonment of games, defending Argentine champion Huracán withdrew from 8 of its fixtures leaving them to finish in 14th place in the group. Several other teams withdrew from multiple games.[1] Abandonments of games, discontinuations, and withdrawals were quite common in these early seasons (cf., for instance, the second half of the 1930 season [2]).

The Argentina national team won a new edition of Copa América.

Primera División[edit]

Colegiales returned to the first division after winning the Primera B championship last year.

As Boca Juniors and San Lorenzo finished level on points, they needed a playoff to decide which team went to the final and which to the 3rd/4th place playoff.
