HISTORY OF THE PRIMERA B METROPOLITANA
The Prim B Metro was established in 1899 under the name the Primera B (Segunda División). This is the first second division championship in Argentina’s football. Some young and reserve teams of Primera Division clubs had the right to take part in the competition.
In 1906, a promotion and relegation league system was created. Porteño became the first team promoted to the highest division.
In 1911, the Association founded the "División Intermedia" as the second level of the Argentine football pyramid. Segunda División became the third level of the system. After the Asociación Amateurs (AAm) and Argentine Football Association (AFA) merged in 1926, the Segunda Division was back to the second level, and Intermedia became the third.
From 1945 to 1985, the league was renamed “Primera Division B”.
In 1986, the Argentine Association established the Primera B Nacional as the second division. The Primera B became the third level and it was also renamed “Primera B Metropolitane” because of being contested by teams from the Buenos Aires metropolitan area. This name has been retained until now.
WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF THE PRIMERA B?
The Primera B Metropolitana is played in a double round-robin tournament. Each club plays the other twice (once home and once away). The achievements of participating teams are calculated by points.
At the end of the season, the team getting the most points is recognized as the Primera B champion and is automatically promoted to the Argentina National B. Teams ranked from the second to the fifth have the opportunity to compete in the Torneo Reducio tournament to find the winner promoted to the second division. The two last-ranked teams are relegated to the Primera C Metropolitana.
