For the season 2018, the format of the Chilean championship changed from the Apertura/Clausura system to a single tournament from February to December 2018. Universidad Catolica won their 13th title of Primera Division with 61 points. Universidad de Concepcion got the second place (58 points) and Universidad de Chile the third (57 points). The top goalscorer of the season is Esteban Paredes (Colo Colo) with 19 goals.
The Panini album of the league was released after the end of the first round, in August 2018. It is the 8th consecutive album of the Chilean league produced by Panini and it includes all the clubs of Primera Division (Campeonato Scotiabank) and Primera B. The first page of the album shows the calendar of the second round (from July to December) and the shining sticker of the Panini icon, whereas the second page is dedicated to the winners of the championship 2017 (Colo-Colo) and it includes a special sticker about their 32th title. Before the clubs are shown, there is a section with data and statistics about the first round of the season 2018. In this section we find 8 stickers of players in action.
The 16 clubs of Primera Division are displaced on two pages with a total of 17 stickers: the team photo (two stickers), the club badge (shining sticker) and 14 players. Two of the player stickers have a special frame on the album: the "Supercrack" is the best performing player of the team and the "Sub 20" is the player under 20 with most minutes in the first round.
The section of Primera B starts with the calendar of the second round 2018 and the celebratory sticker of the winners 2017 (Union la Calera). For each club there are 8 stickers: the shiny badge, the team photo and 12 players from 6 stickers (two players per sticker).
