History

One of the oldest sides still operating in Argentina, Quilmes Sports Club was founded in 1887 by a group of British expats in the city of Quilmes in Greater Buenos Aires. Later in 1900 Quilmes Atletico Club was established and they quickly became challengers to early amateur champions, the now dissolved, Alumni. In 1912, Quilmes won its first title after Alumni had disbanded and many of the players had actually moved to Quilmes.
The club had to wait until 1978 to win its next top flight championship, winning the Torneo Metropolitano.
Quilmes most known nickname is El Cervecero (The Brewers) because of the Cerveza Quilmes brewery based in the same city.
