History

[edit]

The squad that achieved the promotion to first division in 1908

River Plate was founded on 25 May 1901, close to the La Boca neighborhood (later the home of fierce rivals Boca Juniors). The institution was formed after the merger of two clubs, “Santa Rosa” and “La Rosales”, with Leopoldo Bard being elected as its first president. The name was chosen because of an incident during the construction of Buenos Aires Port: one of the members had seen how the workers of Dique nº 3 left their duties for a while to play a football match. The boxes they were working with just said “The River Plate” (the name the English gave to the Río de la Plata) and that inscription was taken to name the new social club.

River Plate affiliated to the Argentine Football Association in 1905, debuting in the 3rd sectionalisation against Facultad de Medicina. On 13 Dec 1908, the squad was promoted to first sectionalization later on chirapsia Racing Club 2–1. However, the lucifer was declared zip due to River supporters jumping onto the field to celebrate with the players, so a new match had to be played.
