All statistics correct as of 18 November 2015.

The 2015 Argentine Primera B Nacional season was the 30th season of Argentine second division, with a total of 22 competing teams. It began 14 February and ended 14 November 2015. Although there was some use of a different name earlier in the year, the AFA has consistently used the Primera B Nacional moniker in releases of late.[1]

Competition format[edit]

The league's format has changed from last season. This year there will be twenty-two teams which will play each other twice for a total of forty-two matches.[1]

In November 2014, the AFA announced two teams from this season will be promoted to the Primera División.[2] It was later reported that the champion will be promoted directly and positions 2-5 will compete in the "Torneo Reducido" for the second place after the regular season.[3] At the end of the season, four teams will be relegated.[4]
