FOOTBALL in Argentina

History of great teams

History of the Great

It was not until 1899 that the first team of Argentinian footballers was created: Argentinos de Quilmes. This was officially the first Argentinian football club and ever since, football has become a national passion par excellence and it has been practiced by men and women of all ages in Argentina.

Already in 1934, the organization called Asociación de Fútbol Argentino (AFA) -which stands for Argentinian Football Association in Spanish- was created. Some of the many best-known and most popular clubs are: River Plate, Boca Juniors, Independiente, Racing Club and San Lorenzo.

History of the Great

The passion awakened by football in Argentina is incredible: only in the City of Buenos Aires, for instance, there are 19 different stadiums. The mythical Bombonera, Boca Juniors' stadium, is one of them. The imposing Monumental, River Plate's stadium, is another one.

Visiting the football clubs and attending the official matches are unique experiences inviting to learn about Argentinian culture, to discover its habits, to memorize the chants and the faces of thousands of fans who sweat blood every weekend and ask the players of their teams to just do the same.

You Will Have to Excuse Me...
"...because I owe those two goals to England. And the only way I have to thank him is to leave him alone with his stuff. Because as time made the stupid mistake of continuing to pass, as he chose to keep a pile of vulgar gifts on top of that perfect present, at least I must have the honesty to remember him for good. I keep the duty of memory."
(Eduardo Sacheri, Esperándolo a Tito y otros cuentos de fútbol -Waiting for Tito and other football stories)
