The 2014 Torneo de Transición or Torneo Doctor Ramón Carrillo was the 124th season of top-flight professional football in Argentina.[1] The season was scheduled to start on August 1, 2014 but was postponed after the death of Julio Grondona, president of the AFA on July 30.[2] Finally, it began on August 8, 2014 and ended on December 14, 2014. Originally the last match of the tournament was scheduled on December 7 but as River Plate played the finals of the 2014 Copa Sudamericana the matches Racing-Godoy Cruz and River Plate-Quilmes were played on December 14.[3] Twenty teams compete in the league, seventeen returning from the 2013–14 season and three promoted from the 2013–14 Primera B Nacional (Championship winners Banfield, runners-up Defensa y Justicia, and 3rd place Independiente).

Colón, Argentinos Juniors and All Boys were relegated to the Primera B Nacional Championship in the previous season.

Format[edit]

The team with most points was the champion and qualified for the 2015 Copa Libertadores group stage.

No teams were relegated this season as the league will get expanded to 30 teams in the new 2015 Primera División.[4] [5]
