Asociación Atlética Argentinos Juniors is an Argentine sports club based in La Paternal, Buenos Aires. The club is known for its football team, which currently plays in the Primera B Nacional. It is one of the eight Argentine first division teams that won the Copa Libertadores, the continental trophy was won in the clubs first entry to the contest, in 1985. The club was founded in the Villa Crespo neighbourhood of Buenos Aires on 14 August 1904, after several moves in its first few years, the club settled in Villa Urquiza. In 1920 Argentinos played a playoff with El Porvenir but it lost 3–2 on aggregate. In 1921 the team secured promotion to the Primera, making its debut in the 1922 season, the club endured a terrible season in 1925, but they followed it up in 1926 with a 2nd-place finish behind champions Boca Juniors. In 1927 the two football associations were reunified and Argentinos played in a massive 34 team league. Later, the league was expanded to 36 and Argentinos managed to keep its place until 1930, in 1931 Argentinos joined 17 other clubs in forming a breakaway professional league, a move that marked the beginning of the professional era of Argentine football. In 1934 the amateur league was broken up and Argentina once again had a unified first division, Argentinos Juniors played on but finished bottom of the league with only 2 wins from 39 games. Argentinos was allowed to keep its place in the Primera, in 1943 Hector Ingunza made his first appearance for the club, and went on to become the top scorer in the clubs history with 143 goals in official games between 1943 and 1946. In 1948 Argentinos suffered another injustice at the hands of the AFA and they had qualified to the end of season playoff for promotion to the Primera and were top of the league after 7 of the 11 rounds when a players strike interrupted the competition. AFA eventually abandoned the playoff and gave automatic promotion to the teams that had been relegated in 1946 and 1947 instead, in 1954 Argentinos finished in 2nd place in the league having scored 88 goals in the league, making it the highest scoring team by far. In 1955 the team secured promotion back to the Primera after 18 long years. Argentinos returned to top competition in 1956 and after finishing near the bottom of the table that year. In 1960 there was an overhaul of the Argentinos Juniors team. The new team performed well and it was only on the last game of the season that they missed out on the championship, Argentinos finished in 3rd place, only 2 points below the eventual champions Independiente. Although the team didnt win the championship, it is remembered by those old enough to have seen them play. In the following years the team did not live up to expectations,1967 saw the introduction of the Metropolitano and Nacional system, Argentinos struggled to adapt and only just survived relegation from the Metropolitano in the inaugural season
