Founded in 1903, Racing has been historically considered one of the “big five” clubs of Argentine football, and is also known as “El Primer Grande” (The First Great), for becoming the first club in the world to win seven league titles in a row, first Argentine club to win a national cup, and the first world champion (Intercontinental Cup) Argentine club.
Racing currently plays in the Primera División, the top division of the Argentine league system, and plays its home games at Estadio Presidente Perón, nicknamed El Cilindro de Avellaneda (in English: “The Cylinder of Avellaneda”).
