The 2001–02 Argentine Primera División was the 111th season of top-flight football in Argentina. The season ran from August 17, 2001 to May 19, 2002.[1]

Racing Club de Avellaneda won the Apertura (its 16th league title, after 35 years with no domestic championships) and River Plate the Clausura (32nd title) championships, while Belgrano (C) and Los Andes were relegated to the second division.

In continental cups, Copa Sudamericana replaced Copa Mercosur, last held in 2001.
