History

Origins in football

Quilmes was founded on April 12, 1922, by a group of young people who used to play football in some of the many unoccupied lands that existed in Mar del Plata in those times. They want to participate in competitions organised by "Asociación Marplatense de Foot-Ball" so they founded a club with the purpose of registering to the Association.

At the beginning those boys did not have a physical place for their meetings and because of that the Club Ferroviario (founded and integrated by employees of the Buenos Aires Great Southern Railway ("Ferrocarril Sud" in Spanish) allowed them to use their buildings. The raising club also was helped by people from the neighbourhood, who made their contributions. Furthermore, the most important donation was given by the legal representatives of beer company Quilmes in Mar del Plata, José Deyaccobi, who donated the club a set of uniform jerseys, which were equal to River Plate kit. That was the origin of the name and colours of the club.

Quilmes' first President was Eugenio Moure, who also composed the official anthem of the club along with the musicians Luis Duhalde and Francisco Mafia.

Like most of Argentine clubs, football was the first sport practised in Quilmes, which is considered a pioneer in the city. Moreover, Quilmes' stadium was the frequent host of all the matches played in Mar del Plata. At the beginning, Quilmes' headquarters were located on 25 de Mayo streets. A basketball court would be added later. The basketball section was added in the 1930s, winning its first title in 1947.
