Club Almagro is a sports club from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The club is mostly known for its football team which currently plays in the Primera B Metropolitana, the regionalised third division of Argentine football league system.

Almagro was founded on January 6, 1911, in the Almagro neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. The club still has its sports facilities there for its members, but the football stadium (with a capacity of 19,000) is located in José Ingenieros, Greater Buenos Aires.

Almagro played one year in first division in 1938 after winning the first second division tournament that awarded a promotion. Later the team won the 1968 second division tournament, but had to participate in the Reclasificatorio tournament with first division teams and other second divisioners and didn't won the promotion. The Tricolores played most of the time in second division, a few years in third division, but in 2000 and 2004 they won the promotion to first division, only to be relegated both times after only one season playing at the top level.
