Club Atlético Banfield History
After claiming victory in the 2009 Apertura, Banfield was promoted to the Primera División for the first time in 2009. After defeating Boca Juniors by a score of two goals to one, Banfield won the Copa de Honor Municipalidad de Buenos Aires in 1920, becoming the first club in Argentina to win a national cup championship. Additionally, the team won ten titles in the Second Division.
The so-called “Southern Classic” (also known as “Clásico del Sur”) is a match that is played between Boca Juniors and Lanus. This match is regarded as a modern classic in Argentine football, and thanks to the success of both teams in recent seasons, it is also regarded as one of the most attractive clásicos in the Primera División.
Along with Los Andes, Temperley, Talleres (RdE), and Quilmes, they are one of their rival schools. Luca Barbuto was elected to the position of president of the club in October 2018, making it the first time in the annals of the Argentine top division that a woman has been given the role of president.
Estadio Florencio Sola (nicknamed “Lencho”) is a multi-use stadium in Banfield, Buenos Aires, Argentina. At the moment, its primary purpose is to host football matches, and Banfield, a team playing in Argentina’s first division, calls it their home field.
The stadium has a capacity of 34,901 people and was built in 1940.
