1929 in Argentine football

1929 saw the 35 teams in the "Asociacion Amateurs Argentina de Football" Primera Division divided into two groups. The top 2 of each group qualified for the final stages of the tournament, which was eventually won by Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.

The season was marred by mass abandonment of games, defending Argentine champions Huracan withdrew from 8 of their fixtures leaving them to finish in 14th place in their group. Several other teams withdrew from multiple games. It should be noted, however, that abandonments of games, discontinuations, and withdrawals were quite common in these early seasons .
