Notes[edit]

  2. ^ Not to be confused with Club Atlético Lanús
  3. ^ When Alumni won the 1900 title the club still named "English High School AC". In 1901 it was renamed due to the Football Association did not allow teams to use the same name as the school they represented to avoid advertising purposes.
  4. ^ The Federación Argentina de Football (FAF) was a rival association that organized its own championships from 1912 to 1914.
  5. ^ The Asociación Amateurs de Football (AAmF) was a rival association that organized its own championships from 1919 to 1926.
  6. ^ The Liga Argentina de Football (LAF) was a dissident association that organized the first four professional championships between 1931 and 1934. In 1935 it merged with the amateur association Asociación Argentina de Football (AAF) whose teams were relegated to second division.
  7. ^ a b c In 1936 two single-round tournaments were played: The Copa de Honor (won by San Lorenzo)[3] and Copa Campeonato (won by River Plate). At the end of both seasons, River and San Lorenzo played a final match for the "Copa de Oro", being River the winner.[4] The Argentine Football Association recognized the three championships as individual honours for each club.[5][6]
  8. ^ Although there was an Apertura (Newell's Old Boys) and Clausura champion (Boca Juniors) this season, the half-year champions played in a two-legged final to determine the season champion, which finally was Newell's.
  9. ^ Since 1991-92 season both Apertura and Clausura are official titles as individuals
  10. ^ Vélez was recognized as the champion of the entire season (2013-14) and awarded its 10th. Primera División title.
  11. ^ Although River defeated San Lorenzo in the "Superfinal", this did not count as a new Primera División honour.
  12. ^ On July 2013, The Argentine Football Association recognized the 1936 Copa de Oro won by River Plate as a Primera División honour. The information was also added to AFA's website.[7] The Copa de Oro was a final played between the champions of previous competitions held that same year: River Plate (Copa Campeonato) and San Lorenzo (Copa de Honor Municipalidad de Buenos Aires). River won the final match by 4-2.[4]
  13. ^ On July 2013, The Argentine Football Association recognized the 1936 Copa de Honor won by San Lorenzo as a Primera División honour. The information was also added to AFA's website.[7]
