Primera Division


The Primera Division de Ascenso, commonly known as the Primera Division, is the second-tier professional football league in Guatemala. It is governed by the National Football Federation of Guatemala (Federación Nacional de Fútbol de Guatemala). The league is a vital part of the country's football structure, serving as a bridge between the top-tier Liga Nacional and the lower divisions.

Established in 1942, the Primera Division has a rich history that mirrors the growth and development of Guatemalan football. It has been the launching pad for numerous players who have gone on to make their mark in the Liga Nacional and beyond. The league has also been home to several clubs that have made the leap to the top tier, demonstrating the competitive nature of the division.

The Primera Division operates on a promotion and relegation system, with the top teams each season earning the opportunity to move up to the Liga Nacional. Conversely, the lowest-performing teams are relegated to the lower divisions. This system fosters a high level of competition, as clubs strive to either maintain their status or achieve promotion.

The league is divided into two groups, Group A and Group B, each consisting of 10 teams. The teams in each group play each other twice, home and away, during the regular season. The top four teams from each group then advance to the playoffs, where they compete for the championship and the coveted promotion spots.

Over the years, the Primera Division has been a hotbed of talent, producing players who have represented Guatemala at the international level. It has also been a platform for coaches to showcase their abilities and potentially earn opportunities in the Liga Nacional or abroad.

Despite facing challenges such as limited resources and infrastructure, the Primera Division continues to play a crucial role in Guatemalan football. Its clubs, players, and fans embody the passion and resilience of the sport in the country. The league's commitment to developing talent and providing competitive football remains unwavering, making it an integral part of the Guatemalan football landscape.
