1919 in Argentine football saw the "Asociación Argentina de Football" (AFA) championship abandoned mid season. The clubs then split between two different associations. The majority of the clubs joined the new "Asociación Amateurs de Football" (AAm) while six clubs remained with the official body.

Boca Juniors was awarded the AFA championship and also won both domestic cups and the international Tie Cup while Racing Club joined the dissident AAm league and won it to claim its 7th consecutive league championship.

Primera División

Asociación Argentina de Football - Copa Campeonato

The 1919 season started on 16 March 1919 but the tournament was annulled due to internal problems. Therefore a new dissident Association was created and there were two tournaments disputed at the same time.

After the schism the Asociación Argentina organized a tournament with the few remaining teams, 6 in total. Boca Juniors was declared champion with 14 fixtures to be played.[1]

Asociación Amateurs de Football

Internal problems in the Association caused that some members left to create a new league: the Asociación Amateurs de Football, which organized its own championships. Racing Club joined the new rival association winning the tournament, its 7th consecutive league title.

Vélez Sársfield played its first Primera División championship after being disaffiliated from the Asociación Argentina.[2]
