The Paraguayan women's football championship is the top level league competition for women's football in Paraguay. The winner qualifies for the Copa Libertadores de Fútbol Femenino, the South American Champions League. The competition is organised by the Paraguayan Football Association.


Format[edit]

The teams play a double round robin. After that the four best teams advance to the semi-finals. After participation in the late 2000s has declined to around 6 clubs, there were some seminares[clarification needed] as how to increase participation. Finally 12 teams did enter the 2011 championship.[1]

List of champions[edit]

In 1997 an experimental tournament was held and won by Nacional. Then, from 1999, the competition was held annually, except for 2001. Universidad Autonoma won 9 times out of 13.[2][3]

Since at least 2004 an Apertura and Clausura format was adopted. The winners of those are not considered champions but play a playoff for the championship.
