Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata
Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata (Spanish pronunciation: known as Gimnasia or the acronym GELP, is a professional Argentine sports club based in the city of La Plata, Buenos Aires Province. Founded in 1887 as "Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima", the club is known for its football team, which plays in the Primera División, the first division of the Argentine football league system. Apart from football, GELP hosts other activities such as athletics, fencing, gymnastics, field hockey, martial arts, roller skating and volleyball; the "Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata" was founded on 3 June 1887 as a civil association, thus is the oldest surviving football club still participating in the Argentine league. The club claims to be the oldest football club in the Americas, despite other football clubs, such as Peruvian Lima Cricket F. C. have older foundation dates. Its foundation came five years after the creation of the City of La Plata in 1882; the first sports offered to its members were, as its Spanish name indicates and fencing.
Clubs supporting these sports were common among the upper classes at the end of the 19th century. On, other disciplines were added, including track and field, football and rugby; the institution changed name a few times: from April to December 1897 it was called a "Club de Esgrima" because fencing was the only activity practised at that moment. On 17 December 1897 it returned to its original name: "Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima". From July 1952 to 30 September 1955, the club was named "Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima de Eva Perón", because the city of La Plata itself had been renamed "Eva Perón" in 1952, after Eva Perón's death; the city returned to its previous name during the government of the "Liberating Revolution", so did the club. However, it remained unduly identified as "Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata", a mistake, corrected on 7 August 1964 after the new statute was approved. Gimnasia y Esgrima was promoted to the first division after becoming champions of the División Intermedia of Argentine football in 1915.
In 1929, the club won its first Primera División championship. During successive years, Gimnasia became champion of Primera B in 1944, 1947 and 1952 and won the Copa Centenario de la AFA in 1994. Additionally, the squad has been a runner-up in the Primera División on five occasions; the club has remained at the top level of Argentine football for 73 seasons, giving it with Newell's Old Boys the eighth longest participation at this level. The Clásico Platense is the nickname given to the match between La Plata's two main football teams: Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata and Estudiantes de La Plata; the first official derby took place as part of the Primera División season on 27 August 1916. On that occasion, Gimnasia won 1–0 over Estudiantes, with an own goal by Ludovico Pastor; the first derby of the professional era took place on 14 June 1931. Between 12 August 1932 and 9 September 1934 Gimnasia won five consecutive La Plata derbies, the longest run of victories in that derby until Estudiantes emulated that feat in 2006–08.
On 25 June 1963 Gimnasia obtained a 5–2 victory, this being the best result so far against Estudiantes. On the other hand, Gimnasia's worst result was a 7–0 defeat on 15 October 2006. A curiosity among the derbies occurred on 5 April 1992, when Gimnasia won over Estudiantes 1–0 at the latter's stadium. On that date, as the stands erupted and Gimnasia's fans shouted in celebration at the goal being scored, the seismograph of the local Astronomical Observatory registered a low-intensity seismic event; that goal was scored by the Uruguayan José Perdomo on a freekick, it has been known since as "El gol del terremoto". Through more than 120 years of history, the Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata has had 56 Presidents, who are elected individuals who took on the responsibility of steering the Institution. Many of them contributed to the growth of the club over the years; some of them have remained more vivid in the fans' memory for their achievements or outstanding works. Saturnino Perdriel was the first president of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.
Perdriel was a merchant during the first few years of the city of La Plata, in addition to being a civil servant at the Treasury Department of the Province of Buenos Aires. He died prematurely after one year as Club president; the President of Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata is chosen by its associates, by means of general elections that take place every three years. Any club member over 18 years of age, with at least three years membership of the Club, have a right to vote. Members with over seven years membership have a right to be elected to the Club governmental body, the Management Commission or "Directory"; the current acting President of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata is Daniel Onofri, following the July 2012 resignation of Héctor Delmar, nineteen months into his three-year term. Onofri was elected as club Vice-President on Delmar's ticket. Delmar's exit was caused by unrest among board members and affiliates, caused by the team's poor performance, Delmar's management style, the meddling of Delmar's daughter Graciela in club activities and finances.
Gimnasia's facilities include, besides its football stadium, a campus of 160 hectares, a campus for children's football, a sports center, a kindergarten, a primary school and one high school. There are dozens o
