San Lorenzo de Almagro

Club Atlético San Lorenzo de Almagro known as San Lorenzo de Almagro or San Lorenzo, is an Argentine sports club based in the Boedo district of Buenos Aires. It is best known for its football team, which plays in the Primera División, the first tier of the Argentine football league system. San Lorenzo is considered one of the "big five" of Argentine football by Argentine press, with Independiente, River Plate, Boca Juniors, Racing Club. San Lorenzo plays its home games at Estadio Pedro Bidegain, popularly known as Nuevo Gasómetro; the stadium and sports facilities are located in Bajo Flores district of the Buenos Aires. The club's previous stadium was the Viejo Gasómetro, located in the Boedo district.

San Lorenzo's historical rival is Huracán, located in Parque Patricios. The two clubs play one of the older derbies in Argentina; some supporters consider this derby as the third-most important after Superclásico and Clásico de Avellaneda, in addition to being one of the most uneven derbies of Argentine Football. Other sports practised at the club are artistic roller skating, field hockey, handball, martial arts, roller hockey, swimming and volleyball; some years ago, San Lorenzo had opened a rugby union section, but it is no longer active. San Lorenzo gained international recognition in March 2013 with the election of Pope Francis, a supporter of the club; the players played with the Pope's photo on their shirts during a league match against Colón Santa Fe on 16 March 2013. The roots of the institution can be found in a team formed by a group of kids that used to play football in the corner of México and Treinta y Tres Orientales streets of Buenos Aires. Due to the increasing traffic in the city, playing football at the streets became a risky activity for the boys.

Lorenzo Massa, the catholic priest of the neighborhood's church, saw how a tram knocked down one of the boys while they were playing in the streets. As a way to prevent more accidents, he offered the boys to play in the church's backyard, under the condition they had to go to mass on Sundays. On 1 April 1908, an assemble was held in the Almagro district of Buenos Aires with the purpose of establishing a club. During the meeting, several names were proposed; the first option was "Los Forzosos de Almagro". The other proposal was to name the club "San Lorenzo" as an homage to Massa, but he refused to be honored that way; the name was accepted by the priest, explaining that the name would not honor himself but both, Lawrence of Rome and the Battle of San Lorenzo, one of the most significative combats for the Independence of Argentina. Other founder member, Federico Monti, suggested to add the name of the neighbourhood, Almagro where most of the members lived in, accepted by the assemble. Due to the team not having its own a stadium, San Lorenzo began to play its home games in a field property of the Club Martínez, placed in the nearby town of the same name.

The squad played its first match on 26 April 1914, at the end of the season San Lorenzo had to play a final match facing Excursionistas to proclaim a champion.
