Club Information:
Club Atlético Independiente is an Argentine athletic, sports and social club, which has its headquarters and stadium in the city of Avellaneda, Greater Buenos Aires. The club is best known for its football team, that plays in the Primera B Nacional and is considered one of Argentina's Big Five football clubs. The club holds a long-standing rivalry with neighbor Racing Club de Avellaneda in the Avellaneda derby, referred to as El Clásico de Avellaneda. Independiente was officially founded on 1 January 1905, although the institution had been formed on 4 August 1904 and had already played in Argentina's first division. Originally from Montserrat, a historic neighborhood of Buenos Aires, the club moved to Avellaneda in 1907. It is the third team with most national league titles in the country (16, the last one being the 2002 Apertura). In international club football competitions, Independiente holds 16 titles, with a record seven Copa Libertadores wins, being the only club to win four finals in a row, between 1972 and 1975. Additionally, the club has won three times the Copa Interamericana, twice the Supercopa Sudamericana, once the Recopa Sudamericana, twice the Intercontinental Cup (1973 and 1984), and the Copa Sudamericana in 2010, its most recent title after 16 years without international wins. On 15th June 2013, after losing a match against San Lorenzo de Almagro, the professional football team was relegated for the first time in its history and will be playing season 2013-2014 in the Nacional B.
