Club Atlético Lanús is a sports club from Lanús, Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. Founded on 3 January 1915, the club's main sports are football and basketball. In both sports, Lanús plays in Argentina's top divisions: Primera División (football) and Liga Nacional de Básquet (basketball). In football, Lanús has won two major championships in its history: the 1996 Copa CONMEBOL and the 2007 Apertura.
The club's main rival in football is Banfield.
Foundation of the club
Club Atlético Lanús was founded on January 3, 1915, in the social club Del Progreso in General Paz Villa. That afternoon, after much talking and after some logical talks with the representatives of Lanús United, who was the club that played on the intermediate division, and was in a desperate economic situation, they came to an agreement and the merger was finalized, causing the birth of Club Atlético Lanús.
The beginning of amateurism
- 1915: Foundation of the club. The club begins to play their matches in Lanús United's old stadium, located in Margarita Wield and Deheza.
- 1919: Gets their first promotion to the First Division after beating Argentino de Quilmes.
- 1927: Third in First Division. Defeat to Boca Juniors 2–0, removing a long unbeaten run.
- 1929: Opens their new stadium in the intersection of Héctor Guidi and General Arias.
The beginning of professionalism
- 1931: Begins to play the Argentine professional football tournament.
- 1949: Relegated for the first time in its history to the Second Division after a controversial definition of the league with Huracán. Héctor Guidi made his debut for the team.
The golden decade of 1950
- 1950: Champions of the Second Division, gaining promotion to the First Division once more.
- 1951: Lanús is the big revelation of the tournament after the first spell of the season. José Florio, a fundamental part of the team, being the leading goalscorer of the league with 21 goals. But, before the second spell of the season started, Torino bought the player and the team lost ground, finishing 5th at the end of the season.
- 1956: The team were having their best season yet. Getting wins versus Argentinos Juniors (4–0), Gimnasia de La Plata (5–3), San Lorenzo (4–0), Huracán (4–2) and Boca Juniors (2–0). The team suffered a lot of injuries all season long, with only Dante Lugo playing all matches. The usual team was Vega; Prato and Beltrán; Daponte, Guidi and Nazionale; Carranza, Lugo, Alfredo Rojas, Urbano Reynoso and Moyano. These players gained the nickname "Los Globetrotters" because of the way they played, comparing to the Harlem Globetrotters. The team finished second at the end of the season, behind River Plate.
Period of 1961–1977
- 1961: After some very irregular seasons, the team were relegated to the Second Division.
- 1964: Champions of the Second Division. The two strikers of the team, Manuel Silva and Bernardo Acosta, started to get some recognition, and eventually gained the nickname "Los Albañiles".
- 1966: Héctor Guidi, one of the maximum icons of the team, retired from football wearing the team's colors.
- 1969: The striking force of "Los Albañiles" was finished, with Bernardo Acosta transferring to Sevilla.
- 1970: Manuel Silva was transferred to Newell's. The team had a poor season and were relegated to the Second Division.
- 1971: With Héctor Guidi as manager, the team were champions of the Second Division and were once more promoted to the First Division.
- 1972: In the team's worst season ever in the First Division, the team was once more relegated to the Second Division.
- 1976: Finishing second in the Second Division, the team was once more promoted to the First Division.
Most difficult years
- 1977: Relegated to the Second Division, after a controversial definition by penalties with Platense. After 20 penalties shot by all outfield players, it was the goalkeepers' turn. The Lanús goalkeeper shot first, but missed. It was the Platense goalkeeper's turn, but instead, Platense striker Miguel Juárez took it, breaking the rules. The referee validated the goal, and Lanús were relegated illegitimately. The club reclaimed, but the Argentine football association did not respond.
- 1978: After the illegitimate relegation to the Second Division, the team had a very poor season and were eventually relegated to the Third Division. With debts of over US$2 million, the club faced its worst crisis.
- 1979: The club only had 2,000 members facing its first season in the Third Division. The political groups linked with the club's debts decided to forget its differences with the club and helped the club face forward.
- 1981: The club were champions of the Third Division various fixtures before the season ended. The club, with help from the fans, were promoted to the Second Division once again having more than 10,000 members.
- 1984: The team reached the semifinals of the promotion playoff to the First Division. The club had to face Racing Club. In the first leg, Racing Club beat Lanús 2–0. In the second leg, played in Independiente's stadium, the referee gave Racing Club a controversial penalty kick after invalidating a Lanús goal. The penalty finished as a goal, but the match was eventually suspended because of Lanús' fans. The match was continued at Atlanta's stadium some days after, and Lanús reverted the score to 2–1 after dominating the game. The referee, Emilio Misic, mistakenly gave the final whistle 5 minutes before the end of regulation. The Racing Club players already started celebrating, so the referee used that excuse not to reverse the decision. Lanús were once again disadvantaged because of a referee error, therefore losing the series and failing to gain promotion to the First Division.
- 1986: Already having more than 25,000 members, the team were promoted to the Second Division.
- 1990: With Miguel Ángel Russo as manager, the team returned to the First Division after 13 years. Thanks to the team's goalkeeper, Alcides Herrera, the team beat Quilmes in the finals of the promotion playoff. The club also started to repair the old stadium made of wood.
- 1991: The team were once more relegated to the Second Division. The club's management decided to keep Miguel Ángel Russo as manager, regardless of relegation.
Revival and last promotion to the First Division
- 1992: More than 30,000 fans said goodbye to the Second Division, when Lanús beat Deportivo Maipú of Mendoza 2–0 and finished champions. That year, Lanús faced Racing Club in the first fixture of the First Division's Apertura, where they drew. The team's campaign allowed the club to calmly maintain the category.
- 1993: The Apertura 1993 resulted highly competitive, and surprisingly found Lanús battling the tournament. The tournament suffered constant delays and was eventually suspended on December 19, with 4 fixtures remaining and with 4 teams sharing 1st position: River Plate, Racing Club, Vélez Sársfield and Lanús. The tournament restarted on February and finished in March 1994. Lanús finally finished 6th, only 2 points behind eventual winners, River Plate.
- 1994: The good campaign of the team allowed them to qualify for the Copa CONMEBOL, where they participated for the first time in an international tournament. The team were eventually eliminated by San Lorenzo in the quarter-finals. On October 1, Ariel Ibagaza made his debut for the team, where he and Hugo Morales formed an unforgettable midfield duo.
Start of the Cúper era and first international title
- 1995: Héctor Cúper took charge of the team at the start of the Apertura. Lanús finished the Apertura 3rd by goal difference and 2nd in points.
- 1996: That year turned out to be one of the club's most important. The club brought in Claudio Enría from Newell's and Gonzalo Belloso. In the Clausura, Lanús were 1st with 3 fixtures remaining, but couldn't maintain the spot and eventually finished 3rd. In the second spell of the year, the club brought in Oscar Mena, Gustavo Falaschi and Gustavo Siviero. Lanús had to face two tournaments at once for the first time in their history, the local tournament and the Copa CONMEBOL. In the local tournament, they finished 3rd once again. In the COPA CONMEBOL, the team reached the finals, facing Independiente Santa Fe of Colombia. In the first leg, Lanús won 2–0. In the second leg, Lanús lost 1–0, resulting in an aggregate score of 2–1, which made them champions. It was Lanús' first major and international title.
Period of 1997–2002
- 1997: In the local tournament, they finished an average season, with a win at La Bombonera being the most relevant achievement. In the Copa CONMEBOL, they finished sub-champions, behind Atlético Mineiro of Brazil.
- 1998: With Mario Gómez as manager, Lanús finished 2nd once more with 40 points behind Vélez Sársfield, which to date being the club's best campaign in terms of points.
- 2002: The team had to face the relegation playoff versus Huracán de Tres Arroyos, winning 2–1 in Platense's stadium and drawing 1–1 in their stadium. With an aggregate score of 3–2 in favor, Lanús remained in the First Division.
Period of 2003–2007 and first local title
- 2003: Stadium repairs were finished.
- 2006: With young players based from their youth academy, Lanús finished sub-champions for the 3rd time in their history in the Clausura. In the Apertura, the team beat Boca Juniors in the last fixture 2–1, depriving them from celebrating their 3rd consecutive title. The club played an international tournament for the first time in 10 years, playing the Copa Sudamericana, where they were eliminated by Pachuca in the quarter-finals, who eventually finished champions.
- 2007: The club got qualification for the 2nd time in a row to the Copa Sudamericana and for the first time in their history to the Copa Libertadores. In the Apertura, after an irregular start, Lanús finished 1st and for the first time in their history won a local title. José Sand was a hero of the campaign, netting an impressive 15 goals in 15 matches.
Period of 2008–2010
- 2008: In the club's first participation in the Copa Libertadores, they finished as the only unbeaten team in the group stages. The club were eventually eliminated from the tournament in the round of 16 versus Atlas.
