The Campeonato de Fútbol Femenino[1] is the main league competition for women's football (soccer) in Argentina. The Argentine Football Association (AFA) created the competition in 1991.


The competition was first played in 1991.[2] The first champions were River Plate.[3] Since 2009 a match is played between the Apertura and the Clausura champions, the winner of the match wins the right to compete in the Copa Libertadores de Fútbol Femenino.[4]


The competition is divided in two single round-robin tournaments each year, the Apertura and the Clausura.[5] Apertura last from autumn to next year's spring, the clausura last from spring to autumn. Each one is played by ten teams.[5] The champion of each tournament is the team that finishes with the most points.[5]
