About Primera Division

The Primera División de Costa Rica is the top-tier category of football in this Central American country. This tournament saw the light of day in 1921, and it is considered by many as the second-best league in CONCACAF, with only Liga MX ranked higher.

Each season, the Costa Rican top-flight is divided into two tournaments called Apertura (which takes place from July to December) and Clausura (played from January to May of the following year). Twelve teams battle to win the championship and to avoid relegation. Only one team gets relegated to the Segunda División per campaign after both tournaments have been played.

Both tournaments follow an identical format. First comes the regular season, with all 12 clubs being placed in one group for a double round-robin format. This means all the teams face off twice. After the regular season is wrapped up, the top four sides move on to the playoff stage, which is a two-legged knockout tournament.

The team that finishes first in the regular season faces off against the side that finished fourth while the second-placed and third-placed clubs lock horns. Those that emerge triumphant move on to the final to battle it out for the tournament title. If the winner of the regular season is unable to win the playoff, a grand final is staged between them and the playoff champion to decide who walks away with the title. Both the final and grand final (if it takes place) are played over two legs.

Added to the trophy, this league hands out tickets to the CONCACAF Champions League. The teams that win the championship in the Apertura and Clausura tournaments earn their spot in the subsequent year’s CCL. They are joined by the team with the most points during the year that did not end up winning a title.
