History

San Albano was founded on May 22, 1927, by alumni of the Quilmes Grammar School and the later Saint Alban's College. Originally a cricket club with the name of Old Philomathian Club, the club added football and tennis sections in the 1930s. The name refers to the inscription of PHILOMATHES POLYMATHES in the school badge.

Today the club is mostly known for rugby and field hockey. The Old Philomathian Club registered with the Unión de Rugby de Buenos Aires in 1949 and started playing hockey in 1967.

Rugby

Old Philomathian Club registered with URBA in 1949 and started playing in 1950. By 1960 the club reached URBA's first division, the top level of provincial rugby, but went straight back down a year later. For the first years of its existence, the club achieved more success in the sevens version of the game, winning the UAR tournament in 1958.

The club was forced to change his name in the mid-seventies from the former Old Philomathian Club to Asociación de Ex-Alumnos del Colegio San Albano due to administrative regulations.

From humble beginnings, San Albano would have to wait until the 2000s before establishing themselves as a top level provincial club. They reached the first division in 2002 and have remained there ever since.

Nowadays rugby, hockey and cricket are played in a competitive way, with teams participating in every mayor championship.
