River Plate club history

Club Atlético River Plate was founded in 1901. The name comes from the Rio de la Plata, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean near the city of Buenos Aires. The club fields teams in a number of additional sports, but is most famous for its football team. In 1904, the club adopted the now iconic red sash on its white kit.

River have won the Argentine Primera a record 37 times, as well as 14 national cups. They are four-time Copa Libertadores champions, and have numerous other international titles as well (including the Intercontinental Cup in 1986). They are, to date, the only Argentine club to simultaneously hold the Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, and Recopa Sudamericana (from 2014-2015). 

River Plate play at the aptly-named Estadio Monumental, the largest stadium in Argentina and South America. In addition to River Plate, it is also the home venue of the Argentina national team. Opened in 1938, It was the host venue of the 1978 FIFA World Cup final, as well as four Copa América finals. 

The biggest rivalry in Argentina and arguably the world is between River Plate and fellow Buenos Aires side Boca Juniors. The Superclásico sees the two most successful and popular clubs in the country face each other. The atmosphere at the iconic Monumental and Bombonera stadiums is unrivaled for these massive clashes each season. Things got so hectic in 2018, that when the two teams met in the Copa Libertadores final, fan violence before the second leg forced the game to be moved to Madrid, Spain. 

Though many of the top players eventually move to Europe, many legends of Argentinian football have played for River Plate throughout their history. Players such as Hernán Crespo, Alfredo Di Stéfano, Ariel Ortega, Enzo Francescoli and Mario Kempes have helped shape River into one of the greatest clubs in the world.
