Yes, they qualify to Nacional, but I don't understand if they qualify to 2020 Interior A.

I read somewheere the 4 bottom teams of 2019 Interior A will play the bests of Interior B for the last 4 spots in Interior A 2020. This means the regional leagues from 2020 will only qualify to Interior B, as Interior A participants will be determined by last years' results. Is that right?

Interior qualification is through regional tournaments.

The last four clubs of the “A” play to keep that spot within their region. If Trebol goes down, Uruguay loses their spot in the “A”.

I saw the news about San Lorenzo buiding their new stadium. It seems they don't have a plan at the moment for Nuevo Gasometro. Would it be interesting for UAR/Jaguares to bid to buy Nuevo Gasometro and make it rugby's national stadium? I know it is a very poor area and far from rugby's traditional areas, but it is a proper stadium inside Capital Federal and close to big avenues. Of course it would cost too much to buy, but maybe... ?

It looks like this idea was around in 2011 https://tn.com.ar/tnylagente/deportes/l ... tro_361657

No chance. The stadium is surrounded by slums. It is a pain in the ass to go at night. Also, the UAR just signed a 6 year deal with Velez.

And stadiums aren't a terribly good investment in the long run. Better lease the facility and save the money.

Every year Los Pumas play five of six test outside Capital Federal, an rugby's national stadium has no sense in Argentina.

Of course it does. it is not about only the Pumas, they can keep playing many matches outside Buenos Aires no matter if UAR has a stadium. it is mostly about the Jaguares, but not only. At the moment Velez is that, but UAR doens't own it.

The question is if it worths to buy and keep a Jaguares stadium (where Pumas would eventualy play, but not exclusively). We are probably talking about around 10 Jaguares-Pumas-Argentina XV matches in Buenos Aires, + club finals, possible future Sevens events, Pumitas, Las Pumas.... it would be easily 12 to 15 events/year with the Pumas still playing matches in other cities.

Just to make visible, Pumas have usualy 6 home matches/year. Jaguares 8. Argentina XV 2 or 3 in the ARC. Let's say, Buenos Aires hosts 8 Jaguares, 2 Pumas, 1 ARC, URBA final, Nacional de Clubes final and at least 1 sevens tournament = easily 14 events. And there would be 4 Pumas and 1 or 2 ARC matches to be played in other cities.

Twickenham, for exemple, hosts only around 7 England national team events/year + Sevens Series + a couple clubs events (Premiership final, a couple of Premiership big games, Varsity Match, Army)... which means, not much more than an eventual Jaguares stadium.

So, Argentina's Nacional de Clubes will be only Semifinals-Final with 2 Interior and 2 URBA clubs... why?

The excuse was to shorten the season. Amateurs were playing more matches than professionals. Now the average will be around 25 competitive games per year.

I’m sure that the union also needs to cut costs. This is our third consecutive year in recession. They were paying for travel in seven regional tournaments, Interior A, Interior B and Nacional de Clubes. Now they can focus their investment in Interior A with air travel, accommodation, ESPN broadcast, etc.

URBA clubs don't want to play interior teams.

Thread bump!

The URBA Primera and Segunda start on April 10, and the URBA Top 12 starts on April 17.

The first phase will be a single round robin. The top teams will advance to the Zona Campeonato, and the bottom teams will advance to the Zona Reubicación, where they will play a second round robin. One team will be promoted and relegated.

Meanwhile, the Córdoba rugby union wants the Dogos to play again.

Article here on a new book called 'The Silence' based on the true events surrounding La Plata Rugby club in 1978.

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2021/ ... -world-cup

Along with the story of the film 'Alive', seems Argentina has an intriguing Rugby history.

"Alive" is about an Uruguayan club.
