The final of the tournament will be held on January 17th, and the competition will not stop during the international suspension next month or during the holidays “Christmas”.
The competition will be divided into 6 groups, each group comprising 4 teams, according to regions, in order to implement strict health measures.
The Argentine League Cup champion, a new domestic tournament that has started since the 2019 season, will qualify for the 2021 Copa Libertadores tournament.
The position of the Argentine Cup has yet to be determined, whose champion will also qualify for the 2021 Copa Libertadores.
Last April, the Argentine Federation announced the end of the 2019-2020 season due to the outbreak of the Corona virus, which meant the cancellation of the Argentine League Cup.
Boca Juniors won the domestic league title for the 2019-2020 season, after a fierce struggle with River Plate.
6 clubs from Argentina will qualify for the Copa Libertadores, they are the 4 best in the league table + the cup champion + the league cup champion, while 6 clubs qualify for Copa Sudamericana.
The Argentine Federation had previously announced the cancellation of the relegation for two seasons in the domestic league, which came to the benefit of the Jimnasia La Plata team and its coach Maradona after it was confirmed that they were relegated to the bottom of the average score table.
