Club Atletico Tiro Federal Argentino

Tiro Federal is an Argentine sports club from the city of Rosario, province of Santa Fe, whose football team currently plays in Primera B Nacional Argentina, the Argentine 2nd division.

Founded on March 29, 1905, they were one of the founding members of the Rosario amateur league in 1907, which they won in 1920, 1925 and 1926. In 1944, they joined the AFA (the national football association), 13 years after the professionalization of the game, where they competed in the second division, but they were relegated to the third after a restructure of the national leagues in 1949. In 1962 Tiro Federal withdrew their team 12 rounds before the end of the competition and was expelled from AFA. Tiro then returned to play in the Rosario league, but then financial problems made the club leave the local league.

Businessman Carlos Davola took over the management of the club at the end the 1990s, and started a very ambitious plan. In 1997 Tiro won the local second division, and then the first division in 1999, 2000 and 2001. At the same time it participated in Torneo Argentino B (the regionalised fourth division) in the 1998/99 season, achieving the second place to win promotion to Torneo Argentino A.

After winning the Clausura 2003 tournament of Torneo Argentino A, Tiro reached Nacional B (national second division), and the next season they won the Apertura 2004 of that league, obtaining a wonderful present for its 100th birthday: the right to play in the Primera Division Argentina.

At the end of their first tournament in the First Division, in the 2005 season, Tiro Federal ended 19th out of 20 teams. However, one of their players, Javier Campora, ended as the top scorer of the tournament.

On April 8, 2006, Tiro Federal was relegated to the Second Division.


Tiro Federal's stadium is located at the Luduena neighbourhood of Rosario. Known as "El Fortin de Luduena" (Luduena's Fortress), the stadium doesn't comply with regulations for first division matches. It currently plays at the Club Real Arroyo Seco's stadium in the nearby city of Arroyo Seco, and for specially important matches, at Newell's Old Boys's stadium.
