Club Atlético Huracán is a professional football team from the Parque Patriciosmarker neighbourhood of Buenos Airesmarker, Argentinamarker. Huracán's fans are called Quemeros ("burners") because years ago there was a garbage burning area at the present location of the Stadium. Their historic rivals are San Lorenzo de Almagro.

History

Though officially founded in 1908, there are papers of a previous foundation on 25 May 1903. Huracán had their moment of glory in the Metropolitano 1973, when they won their only first division title since the end of amateur era. They also won the 1989-90 and 1999-2000 second division championships. Before professionalization of football by the Argentine Football Associationmarker in 1931, the club won the 1921, 1922, 1925 and 1928 Argentine amateur leagues.

Although over recent years Huracán has played several seasons in the 2nd division it has only lost the top category placement category only a few times, and is one of the most popular teams in the country.

At the end of the 2006-2007 season the club gained promotion to the Primera Division Argentina after a 5-2 aggregate win over Godoy Cruz Antonio Tomba in a playoff match.

Stadium

The Estadio Tomás Adolfo Ducó was closed in May 2008, after cracks were discovered in one of the structural columns. While the stadium was out of commission, Huracan played their home games at Argentinos Juniors.

On 13 December, 2008 during the final weekend of the 2008-09 Apertura championship, Huracan returned to the Duco, 438 days after they'd last played there. Their 3-0 victory against Velez was the only game Huracan played at home during their centenary year.
