How is the league formatted?
The Paraguayan Primera Division, known for sponsorships purposes as Copa de Primera TIGO-Visión Banco, was founded in 1906 and in it are 12 teams.
What is interesting about this league, and what may seem unfamiliar to us European football fans, is that this league season is split into two halves and there are two Championships played:
- The Campeonato de Apertura (The Opening Championship), named “Centenario del Sportivo Luqueño”, played from February to July.
- The Campeonato de Clausura (The Closing Championship), named “Homenaje a César Zebala”, played from July to December.
The most successful side in the country is Club Olimpia, who have 45 titles to their name. The second most decorated club, and the last side to win a Championship is Cerro Porteño.
These two clubs have won each of the previous nine Championships.
Five teams in the Paraguayan Primera Division are rewarded with admission to continental competition based on their position at the end of both The Campeonato de Apertura and The Campeonato de Clausura.
Copa Libertadores de America
Both sides who are victorious in each Championship automatically qualify for South America’s elite football competition and enter at the group stage.
The team who finished third combining the results of both Championships qualifies for the Copa Libertadores’ first play-off round.
The teams who finish fourth and fifth in the combined table of both Championships qualify for the first stage of the Copa Sudamericana, which is CONMEBOL’s secondary club football tournament, equivalent to The UEFA Europa League.
The way in which relegation is decided in Paraguay’s topflight may seem peculiar to some.
The side which has earned the fewest number of points per game on average over the last three years will be demoted to the second tier.
In addition, the team with the second lowest points average faces off in a double-legged play-off against whichever side finishes in fourth place in the División Intermedia, Paraguay’s second division, with the winner taking their place in the division.
