The Argentine Association is the auldest in Sooth Americae an ane o the auldest tae be shapit ootside Europe. In 1906 Florencio Martínez de Hoz became the first Argentine-born Preses o the Association.[4]

In 1912 the preses o Gimnasia y Esgrima de Buenos Aires, Ricardo Aldao, breuk up wi the association establishin a awn league, the Federación Argentina de Football which organisit a parallel toornament. Some teams muivit tae the FAF wur Gimnasia y Esgrima, Independiente, Estudiantes de La Plata an Atlanta. The league lastit till 1914 when rejynin Asociación Argentina de Football shapin a unique league for the 1915 saison.

The seicont dissident league wis shapit in 1919 an namit Asociacion Amateurs de Football, organizin its awn championships (as FAF haed done) till 1926 when it mergit tae offeecial association. The dissident league includit some o the maist prominent teams such as River Plate, Racing, Independiente an San Lorenzo, wi the exception o Boca Juniors that remained in the offeecial "Asociación Argentina de Football".

When baith leagues mergit for the 1927 saison, the association wis again renamit tae "Asociación Amateur Argentina de Football" till the profeesionalization o the sport in 1931 when it switched tae "Liga Argentina de Football". The first roond o the recently creatit profeesional championship wis on 31 Mey 1931.[1][5]
