Club Atlético Argentino de Quilmes is a football club from Quilmes in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The team currently plays in Primera D Metropolitana, which is the regionalised fifth tier of the Argentine Football Association league system.
The club was founded in 1899, as a reaction against British hegemony in Argentine football. During the amateur era of football, Argentino played regularly in the First Division. The squad managed two 3rd place finishes in the league championships of 1908 and 1913.
Their last ever season in the Primera came in 1939, and it was a record breaking one. Argentino finished the season bottom of the table with a record of:
Played Won Drawn Lost Goals For Goals Against Points 34 0 4 30 35 148 4
