About All Boys

Club Atlético All Boys was first established in March 1913 and the team became a registered member of the Argentine Football Association a year later. However, All Boys have spent much of their history outside of the country's top tier. Historically, their biggest rivals have been Nueva Chicago. Their rivalry dates back to 1937 and matches between the two clubs have traditionally been seen as some of the lower division's biggest games, while Argentinos Juniors are also considered a major local rival.

The team began its life in the amateur era and was placed into the División Intermedia for the 1914 season. After nine seasons in the division, All Boys gained promotion to the top flight at the end of the 1922 season, making their first Primera División appearance in 1923. In 1934, All Boys turned professional but were soon relegated from the top tier.

To date, the club have struggled to challenge for the country's major national honours, although All Boys have been able to achieve success in the lower divisions. In both 1946 and 1950, they were crowned champions of Primera C. In addition, the club have won Primera B on three occasions, in 1972, 1992–93 and 2007–08.

Amongst the most notable footballers to have played for the side are Valentín Sánchez, Ángel Mamberto, Marcelo Blanco, Rubén Urquiza and José Romero, who was regarded as one of the club's best talents and later went on to become the team's head coach.

All Boys have played their home games at the Islas Malvinas Stadium since its inauguration in 1963. Much like Godoy Cruz's Estadio Malvinas Argentinas, the ground takes its name from Argentine claims to ownership of the Falkland Islands. The stadium was renovated between 2004 and 2007 and is currently able to hold up to 25,000 supporters.
