The Paraguayan Cuarta División (English: Fourth Division), also known as the Primera División C, is the fourth tier football league in Paraguay. It is organized by the Asociación Paraguaya de Fútbol.

The Primera División B Metropiltana tournament is being played since 1997. Since that year, the number of teams, rules and names for the tournament have changed, but as of now it's called "Primera División C" (and no more "Segunda de Ascenso") and 13 teams take part.

Only teams from the Gran Asunción metropolitan area take part in this third division league. Teams from all other parts of Paraguay that are not part of the Gran Asunción area play the Primera División B Nacional tournament in order to get promoted to the Paraguayan Division Intermedia.
