Gimnasia History

After winning the División Intermedia of Argentine football in 1915, Gimnasia y Esgrima was awarded promotion to the country’s top level of competition, the Primera División. Later, in 1929, the club won the championship for the first time in its history in the Primera División.

Gimnasia earned the title of Primera B champion three times in a row between the years 1944 and 1952, and they also took home the Copa Centenario de la AFA trophy in 1994. In addition to that, the team has finished in second place five times while competing in the Primera División. The club has played at the highest level of Argentine football continuously for 73 seasons, making it tied for eighth place with Newell’s Old Boys in terms of the longest involvement at this level.


The Juan Carmelo Zerillo Stadium is a sporting arena that can be found in the city of La Plata in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is also known as El Bosque, which is the Spanish word for “The Forest,” due to the fact that it is situated in a large park of the same name.

It may be found near the corner of 118th Street and the 60th Avenue that runs parallel to it. It is currently able to hold around 33,500 spectators and serves as the home field for the Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.

In honor of Juan Carmelo Zerillo, who served as president of the club from 1929 to 1931, the field on which the game is played bears his name. During his time as president, Gimnasia y Esgrima was victorious in the 1929 Primera División championship, which was the school’s first ever recognised victory.
