The Torneo Argentino C (officially Torneo del Interior)[1] is one of the two leagues that form the regionalised fifth level of the Argentine football league system. The competition is organized by the Federal Council (Consejo Federal), an internal organism of the Argentine Football Association (AFA), and is contested by clubs indirectly affiliated to the Association. In other words, the clubs that play in the tournament are affiliated to their local leagues, that in turn are affiliated to AFA.

The tournament is disputed by teams from all around the country, except from Buenos Aires, Greater Buenos Aires, Rosario and Santa Fe, whose teams are directly affiliated. Teams directly affiliated play in the other regionalised fifth tier, the Primera D Metropolitana.

Teams in the Argentino C play for promotion to the Torneo Argentino B. On the other hand, there is no unique league below this level. Teams are relegated to their original regional leagues.

Format[edit]

Over 300 teams play in the Argentino C. The three winners gain automatic promotion to the Argentino B, and a further six teams enter two-leg playoffs with teams finishing near the bottom of Argentino B.
