The 2010–11 Primera División season was the eighty-second season of top-flight professional football in Argentina. A total of 20 teams competed in two championships —the Apertura and Clausura— over the course of the season, which started on August 6, 2010 and ended on June 30, 2011, one day prior to the start of the 2011 Copa América, held in Argentina.

Club information[edit]

Twenty clubs participated in the 2010–11 season. Chacarita Juniors and Atlético Tucumán were relegated at the end of the 2009–10 season. They were replaced by Olimpo and Quilmes, both of whom were promoted from the Primera B Nacional. Rosario Central and Gimnasia y Esgrima (LP) played in the relegation/promotion playoffs against All Boys and Atlético de Rafaela, respectively, to determine the other two teams for this season. Following those matches, Gimnasia stayed in the Primera División, while Rosario Central was relegated and replaced by All Boys.

During the season, Estudiantes used Estadio Centenario Dr. José Luis Meiszner in Quilmes and Estadio Ciudad de La Plata in La Plata since their home stadium, Estadio Jorge Luis Hirschi, was undergoing renovations.

Playoff for relegation/promotion playoff 1[edit]

Since Huracán and Gimnasia (La Plata) finished with the same relegation co-efficient at the dividing line, a one-match playoff was held to determine who had to play in the relegation/promotion playoffs and who had to be directly relegated to the Primera B Nacional. The match was played on June 22, 2011 at Estadio Alberto J. Armando in Buenos Aires. Gimnasia won the match 2–0 and continued to the relegation/promotion playoff against San Martín de San Juan; Huracán was relegated to the Primera B Nacional.

Team 1  Score  Team 2
Huracán 0–2 Gimnasia y Esgrima (LP)

Relegation/promotion playoffs[edit]

The 17th and 18th placed teams in the relegation table (River Plate and Gimnasia y Esgrima (LP), respectively) played the 3rd and 4th place finishers of the 2010–11 Primera B Nacional season (San Martín (SJ) and Belgrano, respectively), the winner of each claiming a spot in the following Primera División season. The Primera División team (Team 1) played the second leg at home. Both San Martín de San Juan and Belgrano defeated their Primera División counterparts—Gimnasia de La Plata and River Plate, respectively—to successfully earn promotion to the Primera División for th 2011–12 season. Of historic note, this is the first time River Plate got relegated to the Primera B Nacional.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Due to the passing of Néstor Kirchner, President of Argentina from 2003–2007, on October 27, all matches for the following weekend were postponed. This pushed the match schedule for the remainder of the season back a week, changing the end of the tournament from December 12 to December 19. The schedule was later adjusted again end on December 12 as planned. Due to Independiente's participation in the 2010 Copa Sudamericana, their match against Tigre was postponed to February 6, 2011.
