Overview

It is the most important argentine competition for clubs. It is played by the best teams of each regional tournament.
After a period of loss of interest it was abandoned in 2011, but it was revamped in 2014 where it became the first tournament of the season.
The new format provides a 16 teams tournament: 7 from URBA and 9 from Interior regions.
URBA qualifies each year the best 7 teams from Torneo de la URBA, while the Interior clubs are selected by region with an ascenso/descenso method to determine the number of teams for each region: every year the region of the worst Interior team loses one spot, replaced by the region of the winner on Torneo del Interior.

In 1973 a first club national tournament was played, the Campeonato Argentino de Clubes, but it was discontinued after only 1 year.
