The 1929 Argentine Primera División was the 38° season of top-flight football in Argentina. The season began on July 21, 1929, and ended on February 30, 1930, this season saw the 35 teams of Primera, 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]).

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.
