What tournament format will the managers choose?

The steps are these: the Competition Commission of the Professional League draws an opinion, travels to the AFA and the Executive Committee gives the okey to the new tournament. Are we close to that? We were next door, but some club positions emerged that raised differences or raised the tone before certain decisions and that’s why the confirmation is stopped. What would be a fact is that the competition It will start at the end of September and will end at the end of the year. And how will it be?

A tour of the 24 clubs is an important sampling to determine that the initial position of the League has a majority: a Classification Zone, with six groups of four teams (seven games, since it is a round trip and an interzonal date of classics). The top two from each group will qualify for the Cup named after the main sponsor of the League: and then they will be divided into two groups of six. There will be only five games per group and the first two of each will play the final, which is scheduled for 12/19: champion and a place in the Libertadores of 2021.

To the Cup with the name of the second sponsor the remaining 12 teams will go, and they will also be separated into two groups. The development will be the same and the first from each zone will play the final, also on 12/19. And here comes the award: The winner will be measured (12/22) with the loser of the other for a place in the South American 2022.

Although it has more followers and it is the Cup – that’s what they call it – already unofficially defined by the League, several points made certain clubs jump. Some don’t want classics (strict TV request) and Huracán does not accept that Vélez is seeded in his place. Given this, Godoy Cruz’s position emerged at the Commission meeting on Tuesday. And while he has fewer followers, he raises a crucial issue: that the points are counted as part of the 2020 season for the averages. What does the Tomba say? Two zones of 12 teams, No classic dates, that the score adds up to the 2022 averages -something that few like- and with a semi and final for a place in the Libertadores. In short, the same as the Super League Cup that was suspended after the first date. The difference is that in this case, the 3rd and 4th of each group would play a mini-tournament and the winner would see the loser of the first final for a place in the South American 2022.

Although there is still another meeting of the Commission, in which José Mansur, president of Tomba, participates, the League would lean towards the format that it already has closed. Will there be many complaints?
