Club Atlético River Plate (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈriver ˈpleit]) is an Argentine sports club based in the Nuñez neighborhood of Buenos Aires. It is best known for its professional football team, which currently competes in Nacional B, the second tier of Argentine football.
River Plate is one of the most successful teams in Argentine football. They have won the Primera División a record 33 times; their last domestic title was the 2008 Clausura. In addition, they have won five international titles, including two Copa Libertadores, one Intercontinental Cup, one Supercopa Sudamericana, and one Copa Interamericana. Their success in the 1990s had led IFFHS to name them ninth in their All-Time Club World Ranking (and first in the Americas). They are currently ranked 253rd. However, after the 2011 Clausura, River's poor form over the past three years forced them into a relegation/promotion play-off against Nacional B Club Atlético Belgrano. Belgrano won the tie over two legs 3–1 on aggregate, relegating River to second tier football for the first time in their history.
The club was officially founded in 1901 and took its name from the common English name for the Río de la Plata. River has a fierce rivalry with Boca Juniors, also from Buenos Aires. Matches between them are known as Superclásico, and is amongst the most heated rivalries in the sport due to both teams' local and global popularity. River's home stadium is Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti, known simply as "El Monumental", which is the largest stadium in the country.

River Plate was founded on May 25, 1901, close to the La Boca neighborhood (later the home of fierce rivals Club Atlético Boca Juniors). The club moved first to Palermo and then to Belgrano on the northern side of the city in 1923. In the 1920s, River won only an amateur championship in 1920.
With the onset of professionalism in the early 1930s, River acquired Bernabé Ferreyra, "La Fiera" (the fierce), from Tigre for a then unheard of sum, and paid mostly in gold. The club became known as Los Millonarios ("The Millionaires"). They won the league title in 1932 (beating Independiente in the final), 1936 and 1937.
In the 1940s Alfredo Di Stéfano and 1950s Eduardo Omar Sívori played for River before moving on to become stars in Europe – Sívori for Juventus and Di Stéfano for Real Madrid. Some River players, including Di Stéfano, had stints in the Colombian El dorado "pirate" league, which was not recognised by FIFA, when it was the world's wealthiest.
River's attractive, offensive playing style earned the side of the early 1940s the nickname La Máquina ("The Machine"). The names of the team's five forwards (Muñoz, Moreno, Pedernera, Labruna, Loustau) are well known to most Argentine fans. La Máquina is often considered as the predecessor of Holland's total football which took the 1974 World Cup by storm, reaching the final where they lost to Germany. This team crowned itself champion in 1941, 1942, 1945 and 1947. They were dubbed Los Caballeros de la Angustia ("The Knights of anguish") after winning a number of decisive matches in injury time.
In the 1950s, River won five out of six league titles (1952, 1953, 1955, 1956, 1957), before an 18-year drought ensued. Within those years, "The Millionaires" reached the Copa Libertadores' final in 1966. In the final's playoff in Santiago de Chile, River began winning 2–0, but finally was defeated by Peñarol 2–4. Though the club of Núñez did not win any championship in the 1960s, it finished runner-up several years, including a final loss (1–4) against the Chacarita Juniors in the 1969 National Championship.
River returned to form in 1975 and then had a string of championship titles under coach Angel Labruna with players like Ubaldo Fillol, Daniel Passarella and Norberto Alonso. Under the command of "Angelito", River won the Metropolitano championships in 1975, 1977, 1979, 1980, and the Nacional tournaments in 1975, 1979. The famous Alfredo Di Stéfano replaced Labruna in 1981 and won the National tournament of that year, with the presence of "Matador" Mario Kempes in the team's lineups.
In 1983, Enzo Francescoli was transferred from Uruguayan side Montevideo Wanderers to take Alonso's place. He had two stints with River, achieving international renown, and became known as "The Prince". In 1986, just after Francescoli's transfer to Racing Club Paris in France, River won their first Libertadores Cup. A new generation of home-grown players, led by Claudio Caniggia, went on to achieve success both with River and abroad.
River Plate have won 33 Argentine professional championships, as well as the Intercontinental Cup in 1986 and the Copa Libertadores (twice) in 1986 and 1996, both times beating the same club in the final, América de Cali. They also won the Copa Interamericana in 1987, beating LD Alajuelense from Costa Rica and the Supercopa in 1997, beating São Paulo FC. River was the first team in Argentina to simultaneously win an international title (Supercopa) and a First Division Championship (Torneo Apertura 1997). This series of successes led the club to first place in the IFFHS ranking for six consecutive months, the first Argentine club to do so. They are also the only Argentine club ranked as the best World team in a full season (1997–1998).
In 1999, a special edition of the Argentine sports magazine "El Gráfico" named River Plate as "Champions Of The Century" ("Campeón Del Siglo"), noting the clubs achievements, especially their then 28 Argentine championships against Boca Juniors' 19 and Independiente's 13 (all figures as of 1999). And, the following year, in a FIFA sponsored poll, River were voted the best Argentine team of the 20th century.
In 2008, Diego Simeone was appointed manager of the club, in his first season he led them to their first league title in four years, winning the Clausura championship. The following season the club suffered a poor run of form resulting in Simeone's resignation mid-season. The club went on to finish in last place in the Apertura 2008, the first time they had ever finished bottom of a league in 107 years.
In 2011, River Plate was facing both an institutional and sports crisis. José María Aguilar left the presidency of the club with a debt of over 10 million dollars, being replaced by Daniel Pasarella. The team ended the 2008 Apertura tournament at the bottom of the table, and River's poor form followed through the 2011 Clausura tournament. As a result, River played the "Promoción", a two-legged play-off against Belgrano de Córdoba, the fourth placed team of the 2010–11 Primera B Nacional. Belgrano won the first leg 2–0 at Córdoba, and held on for a 1–1 draw at El Monumental. With the defeat, River Plate was relegated to Nacional B for the first time in its history. The second match was interrupted during injury time by rioting in the stadium and its surroundings which continued after the match was called, despite a substantial police presence. Almost immediately following River's relegation, Juan Jose Lopez resigned as manager.
River in the Copa Libertadores
River Plate first participation in Copa Libertadores came in 1966, when the runners-up of the South American leagues were included for the first time. In this cup River reached the final, but lost the final 2-4 against Peñarol of Montevideo.
In 1975 River won the league title coached by Ángel Labruna, which ended 18 years without a title, including players like Ubaldo Fillol, Roberto Perfumo (winner of the cup in 1967, playing for Racing Club), Daniel Passarella, J. J. López (winner of the cup in 1985, playing for Argentinos Juniors), "El Beto" Alonso and Leopoldo Luque. The next year they reached the cup final. This time, their rivals were the Brazilian team Cruzeiro, after losing the first match and winning the second, River lost the tie in the third match played in Santiago, Chile.
River's next appearance in the final came in 1986. On the way to the final La Banda beat Boca Juniors, Peñarol and Montevideo Wanderers in the first round, and then Barcelona Sporting Club and Argentinos Juniors (the reigning champions) in the semi-final group. They met América de Calí in the final who featured Argentine players such as Oscar Falcioni, Carlos Ischia, and Alejandro Gareca. In the first leg, disputed at Cali, Colombia, River won 2–1, the scorers were Alonso and "Buffalo" Funes. One week later, before a full Monumental, River ended its long Via Crucis in the history of the Libertadores, defeating América 1–0, the scorer was again Funes.
River could not retain title the following year, being eliminated by eventual champions Peñarol.
The millonarios returned to the Libertadores in 1990, after beating Independiente, lost in the semifinals against Barcelona Sporting Club.
The next year, 1991, River share the group with Boca and the Bolivian teams of Bolívar and Oriente Petrolero. The first match, against Boca in the Bombonera, saw one of the great superclásicos: The bosteros, losing 1–3 at half time, came back to win 4–3. River eventually finished bottom of the group and were eliminated.
In 1993, River faced Argentine rivals Newell's Old Boys in the group stage, along with Olimpia and Cerro Porteño, of Paraguay. After a suspicious match which finished 1–1 between Newell's and Olimpia, River was eliminated again in first round.
1995: River won its first stage group, ahead of Independiente, Peñarol and Cerro (of Montevideo), then defeated Universidad Católica, of Chile, and then Carlos Bianchi's Vélez Sarsfield (reigning champions of South America), but fell in the semifinals against Atlético Nacional of Medellín, where played goalkeeper Carlos Higuita.
1996: After ten years, River won La Copa again. In the first round won its group, who shared with San Lorenzo de Almagro, the other Argentine champions, and the club of Venezuela Minervén and Caracas FC. Later they defeated the Peruvian club Sporting Cristal; then San Lorenzo de Almagro and Universidad de Chile in the semis. Finally, River must play the decisive matches against the same rival of 1986, América de Cali. Though La Banda lost the first leg at Cali (0–1), won the second leg in Monumental 2–0 (both goals scored by "Valdanito" Crespo). The lineups of River that match was: Germás Burgos; Hernán Díaz, Daniel Rivarola, Carlos Altamirano; Marcelo Escudero, Matías Almeyda, Gabriel Cedrés; Ariel Ortega, Hernán Crespo, Enzo Francescoli (captain). The coach was Ramón "El Pelado" (the bald) Díaz.
In 1997 River failed to defend their title after defeat by Racing Club, after two drawn matches, 1–1 and 3–3, by penaties shoutouts.
In 1998 eventual winners Vasco de Gama beat the millonarios in the semifinals.
In 1999, River lost another semifinal, this time against Palmeiras of Brazil.
In 2000, In the quarterfinals, after defeat Boca Juniors 2–1 at Monumental, River was crushed 0–3 in the Boca stadium. The "Xeneises" advanced to semifinals and later won the Cup against Palmeiras.
In 2004, River Plate were again eliminated by Boca Juniors, this time in a penalty shootout. This time, Boca finished losing in the final to the almost unknown Once Caldas from Colombia.
In 2006, Again under the command of Passarella, River made a great first round, defeated the powerful Corinthians in 2nd round, but after the intermezzo due the World Cup, and the sale of several players – the team of Núñez fell in Asunción against Libertad, from Paraguay, being eliminated.
In 2008, River reached the quarterfinals, when they were eliminated. After losing 1–2 in the first leg against San Lorenzo de Almagro, River established a 2–0 lead in the second leg at the Monumental, San Lorenzo were then reduced to nine players following two red cards, but came back to score two goals to eliminate River.

River Plate and Boca Juniors are the two largest football clubs in Argentina, with more than half the country's football fans supporting the clubs. Due to the rivalry between them, the Boca Juniors vs River Plate Superclásico local derby match was listed by the BBC as one of the most famous derbies in the world., and also as number one of the Fifty sporting things you must do before you die by The Observer newspaper.
The "River Plate" name was chosen in 1901, when the team was still located at the La Boca neighbourhood, next to the Río de la Plata ("River Plate" in some English sources). Proposed names as "Club Atlético Forward", "Juventud Boquense" or "La Rosales" had been rejected. Pedro Martínez saw the name "The River Plate" written at ship containers, and proposed it as a name, which was finally accepted as the official name.
River fans and the press are fond of the nickname Los Millonarios. This name derives from the 1930s after some expensive transfers of players from other clubs, including Carlos Peucelle from Sportivo Buenos Aires in 1931 and Bernabé Ferreyra from Tigre in 1932. Between 1979 and 1981, the River squad was reputed to be amongst the most expensive in the world.
Fans of rival clubs call River Gallinas (literally hens, but more akin to chicken). This nickname was born after the final of the Copa Libertadores in 1966 against Uruguayan team Peñarol. River were ahead 2–0 but ended up losing the game 4–2, during the infamous title drought that lasted from 1957 to 1975, a period that included 11 second places in the Argentine league.
When Hugo Santilli become chairman in 1984, he soon called to a competition where a new emblem would be chosen. The main objective of this new image was to eradicate the nickname Gallinas that River's rivals (Boca Juniors fans mainly) used to refer to them. Some of the most important artists from Argentina took part in that competition so the club finally chose a logo designed by the famous artist Caloi. This emblem showed the figure of a lion (wearing a River jersey) raising from the Monumental stadium. The lion logo was immediately added to the uniforms (on the field and training clothes) having River Plate won the Copa Libertadores and Intercontinental Cup using the lion logo. In 1989, when Santilli left the club so the lion went with him and has not been reestablished since.
Due to the red band in their shirt, it is also common to refer to River as El Equipo de la Banda Roja (the team with the red band) or simply La Banda (which also means "the band" -both as in "gang" and "musical group").
Some famous River teams earned nicknames, notably La Máquina (the machine), the team that astonished Argentine football between 1941 and 1945.
In 1996 and 1997, during a run of title wins (three Argentine titles, one Copa Libertadores and one Supercopa), River were sometimes called La Maquinita ("The Little Machine") by the press. That team featured Francescoli and younger players such as Juan Pablo Sorín, Hernán Crespo, Ariel Ortega, Marcelo Salas and Marcelo Gallardo.
El Monumental is River's home stadium in the Belgrano neighborhood of Buenos Aires. With a capacity of 65,645, the stadium was inaugurated on May 25, 1938. It is also used in matches by the Argentina national football team.
