Club Atletico Lanus

Club Atletico Lanus is an Argentine football club from Lanus, Buenos Aires, founded on 3 January 1915. They have won two major championships in their history, the Copa CONMEBOL in 1996 and the Apertura 2007.

The club's main rival is Club Atletico Banfield.


In 1978, with debts of over US$2 million the club faced its worst crisis. But the support of its fans made it possible to come back to the Second division and pay off its debts. In 1978 the club had 2,000 members. In 1981 it had 10,000.

The club also has a professional basketball team playing in the Argentine top division.

In 2007, Lanus won their first ever top flight championship. They won the Apertura 2007 after earning a 1-1 draw with Boca Juniors in their last fixture of the tournament to finish four points clear of their closest rivals Club Atletico Tigre. Jose Sand was a hero of the campaign, netting an impressive 15 goals in 15 games.
