The 2015 Torneo Descentralizado de Fútbol Profesional (known as the 2015 Copa Movistar for sponsorship reasons) is the 99th season of the highest division of Peruvian football. A total of 17 teams have been confirmed to compete in the season after Alianza Atlético were reinstated in the first division following their relegation in 2011.[1]

Competition modus[edit]

The competition will be played with 17 teams after the restitution of Alianza Atlético's place in the first division. The championship will be divided into several stages.

Tournament Stage Dates Rounds
Torneo del Inca Group stage 6 February – 5 April 10
Semi-finals 11 – 19 April 2
Final 26 April 1
Torneo Apertura Single stage 1 May – 23 August 17
Torneo Clausura Single stage 30 August – 29 November 17
Playoffs Semi-finals Dates TBA 2
Third place match Dates TBA 2
Finals Dates TBA 2

The first tournament to be played will be the 2015 Torneo del Inca—played by the 17 teams in 3 groups. Subsequently, the Torneo Apertura will have all teams play each other once either home or away while the Torneo Clausura will repeat those matches but reversing the home or away ground. The winners of these three tournaments will advance to the semi-finals of the playoff phase at the end of the season granted they each finish at least eighth in the aggregate table or above. The aggregate table will consist of the results of only the Torneo Apertura and Torneo Clausura. The fourth team to advance to the semi-finals will be the best placed team in the aggregate table that did not win any of the three tournaments.

Should one team win two of the three tournaments, they will automatically advance to the finals of the playoff phase and the semi-finals will be played by the team that won the remaining tournament and the best placed team on the aggregate table. Should one team win all three tournaments they will automatically become season champions. The aggregate table will also determine the three teams to be relegated at the end of the season.

The teams that qualify for the international competitions will be:
