League 1: what is the use of winning the 2023 Opening Tournament?

Winning the Apertura Tournament is taking a big step in Alianza’s aspirations to be a three-time national champion, as it ensures a place in the ‘play-off’ to dispute the title of the season.

However, it must be taken into account that if the ‘intimates’ are not among the top eight of the accumulated table, they will not be entitled to this possibility and this place will be awarded to the best positioned in said general classification.

Likewise, if Alianza manages to be among the first two of the Accumulated, it will have its presence in the grand final to dispute the national title. In case he also wins the Apertura, he will automatically be national champion.
