The 1915 Argentine Primera División was the 24° season of top-flight football in Argentina. The season began on April 4 and ended on January 1916, the reunification of the "Asociación Argentina de Football" and the "Federación Argentina de Football" brought the creation of a championship of 25 teams. The tournament took a league format with each team playing the others once.[1]

Clubs that made their debuts in Primera were San Lorenzo de Almagro (Segunda División (AFA) champion)[2] and Defensores de Belgrano (División Intermedia (FAF) champion).[3] The coming of San Lorenzo caused all the "big five" met in an official tournament for the first time. Racing achieved its 3° consecutive championship.

For the first time in Primera División history, four teams were relegated: Kimberley (BA), Defensores de Belgrano, Comercio and Floresta.
