Apertura and Clausura tournaments
Argentine football has a fast paced, exciting format. Apertura and Clausura tournaments are the opening and closing of the season in Latin America. These tournaments are played in countries such as Mexico, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Paraguay.
These tournaments are considered to be more exciting than the double round robin tournaments used in Europe. However, they also have a shorter amount of points to collect throughout the tournament.
For many Latin American leagues, the Apertura and Clausura tournaments are a relatively new innovation. Ecuador adopted this format for its championships in 2005. The leagues are organized into three groups of six teams. The teams play home and away series. The winner of each group advances to the next group and earns the championship title.
The leagues of Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Peru have tournaments as well. In Ecuador, the championship title is awarded during the first and second group of leagues.
The Apertura and Clausura tournaments are held during the second half of the calendar year. The Apertura tournament is held in Guatemala and Honduras, while the Clausura is held in Mexico. The winner of the Clausura tournament is awarded the title of the national champion.
The leagues of Uruguay and Peru also have playoffs to determine the season champion. In both countries, the winner of the Apertura is awarded the title of the national champion.
Those of us who have played Football Manager might not be aware of the complex system of relegation that Argentina’s Superliga has. The relegation system in Argentina takes into account points earned by clubs over the last two seasons and divides them by the number of matches played.

In this system, the best-ranked teams from the lower division are promoted to the higher division. The worst-ranked teams are automatically relegated. The relegated teams are replaced by a champion from the second division (Primera Nacional).
The first teams to be relegated under the new system were Ferro Carril Oeste and Racing de Cordoba. The clubs relegated under the old system were San Lorenzo and Nueva Chicago.
In the current season, there are 26 teams in the Superliga Argentina. In the previous season, there were 28 teams. There are also 26 regional tournaments which each comprise four teams. The winner of each regional tournament advances to the Nacional championship.
