Primera B Metropolitana is one of two leagues that form the regionalized third level of the Argentine football league system. The other league at level three is the Torneo Argentino A.

Primera B is made up of 21 clubs mainly from the city of Buenos Aires and its metropolitan area (Greater Buenos Aires).

Format[edit]

Primera B Metropolitana is currently organized so, during the course of a season, each club plays the others twice (a double round robin system), once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents.

The team that gets the most points at the end of the season is recognized as the Primera B champion and is automatically promoted to Primera B Nacional. The teams that hold the second to fifth positions have the chance to enter the Torneo Reducido whose winner will be promoted.

The teams with the 2 lowest aggregate points total in Primera B Metropolitana are relegated to Primera C Metropolitana.
