Club Almirante Brown
Argentine Primera B Nacional
Club Almirante Brown (mostly known simply as Almirante Brown) is an Argentine football club from Isidro Casanova in the Greater Buenos Aires, currently playing in the Primera B Nacional, the second level of Argentine football league system.
The club was founded on January 17, 1922, with the name Centro Atlético y Recreativo Almirante Brown. The team played in Primera B Nacional between the 1986-87 and 1997-98 seasons, reaching its highest position ever in the 1991-92 season, when Almirante finished 2nd in the table. The club was within one game of obtaining the promotion to play in the Primera División, however Almirante lost the final against San Martín de Tucumán.
In May 2007 Almirante Brown became Primera B Metropolitana Clausura champion, after beating Estudiantes de Buenos Aires in the final match. The fixture was marred by violence and Almirante Brown was forced to start the following season in B Nacional with -18 points as punishment. This punishment eventually saw the team relegated despite a number of good performances which would have seen it finished in 3rd place without the points deduction.
