Club Atletico Nueva Chicago

Nueva Chicago is an Argentine football club based in Mataderos, a neighborhood in the west side of Buenos Aires, formerly called Nueva Chicago.

Their home is at Estadio Nueva Chicago.

Nueva Chicago is not a popular Argentine team in the fact that it has played relatively a short time in the first division.

Its nickname, el torito ("the little bull") is an allusion to 1930s Mataderos boxer Justo Suarez, known as "el torito de Mataderos" ("Mataderos' little bull").

2007 riot

The club played in the Primera Division Argentina during the 2006-2007 season, but they were relegated to Primera B Nacional after losing their promotion/relegation playoff against Club Atletico Tigre. The second leg of the playoff was marred by violence. When the match was close to its end, with Tigre winning by 2-1 and dooming Nueva Chicago to relegation, home supporters rioted, causing extensive damage to the Estadio de Nueva Chicago. There was also struggling in the streets which resulted in the death of one supporter of Tigre. The result of this was that Nueva Chicago was relegated and started the new season with a 18 point deduction. Most Nueva Chicago fans decried the violence and lamented the death of the fan of Tigre. This was the first death ever related to a game of Nueva Chicago, and most fans are indignant that the violence of a few was not stopped by the police and club authorities and was even promoted by the coach at the time .
