The 2016 Torneo Descentralizado de Fútbol Profesional (known as the 2016 Copa Movistar for sponsorship reasons) was the 100th season of the highest division of Peruvian football. A total of 16 teams competed in the season.

Competition modus[edit]

The season is divided into four phases. The first phase is the Torneo Apertura with all teams playing each other once either at home or away. The second phase is the Torneo Clausura with all teams entering this phase with their points won in the Torneo Apertura and all teams play each other once either at home or away. The third phase is the Liguilla phase with all teams entering this phase with the points they earned at the end of the Torneo Clausura. In this phase, the teams are divided into two groups and play each team in their group twice at home and away. The two teams with the least amount of points in the overall table at the end of the Liguila phase are relegated. The final phase is the Playoffs where the four teams with the most points enter the semifinals. The semifinals are played over two legs. The semifinal winners advance to the two-legged finals and the losers advance to a single leg third place playoff.

The champions, runners-up, and third place playoff winners advance to the 2017 Copa Libertadores. The Torneo Apertura winners, Torneo Clausura winners, and third place playoff losers qualify to the 2017 Copa Sudamericana. The remaining Copa Sudamericana berth is awarded to the team with the best record on the aggregate table that has not qualified for any 2017 international tournament.

Teams[edit]

A total of 16 teams have been confirmed to play in the 2016 Torneo Descentralizado. Fourteen teams from the previous season, the 2015 Segunda División champion (Comerciantes Unidos), and the 2015 Copa Perú champion (La Bocana).
