The Campeonato Argentino de Mayores is an annual rugby union competition in Argentina for provincial teams. The Campeonato Argentino is strictly amateur, and only players from local clubs are allowed.

The competing teams do not represent the 24 political provinces of Argentina, but rather the unions of the rugby provinces that make up the Unión Argentina de Rugby (UAR). Some of these unions represent more than one political province, for example "Noreste" (North east) represents the provinces of Chaco and Corrientes. Other unions may only represent part of a political province, most notably the unions that make up the province of Buenos Aires and also the unions of Santa Fe and Rosario, both within the borders of the province of Santa Fe.

The competition is split into three divisions:

  • Zona Campeonato which contains the 8 best unions,
  • Zona Ascenso, with the next best 8 teams divided in two pools, with the winner of them play a play-off with the lowest two of the higher level for promotion to the Zona Campeonato. The last two of the pools play a play-off. The loser is relegated to Estimulo
  • Super 9 (or Zona Estímulo) with 9 teams. The winner is promoted to Ascenso.

In the 2012 edition, the national teams of Chile and Uruguay participated at the Zona Campeonato, while the national teams of Brazil and Paraguay played in the third level.

Also in 2015 Uruguay enters in the competition with a team at Zona Ascenso. The same for Paraguay, from in 2016, in order to compete in Super 9.
