Club Atlético San Martín (mostly known as San Martín de Tucumán) is an Argentine sports club founded in 1909 and based in the city of San Miguel de Tucumán, Tucumán Province. The club is mostly known for its football team, which currently plays in Torneo Argentino A, the third division of the Argentine football league system.

San Martin played every season in the Nacional championship between 1968 and 1985. El Santo has also played 3 seasons in the Argentine Primera División, in 1988/89, 1991/92 and in 2008/09.

The club's most notable victory was a 6–1 win over Boca Juniors in the Bombonera on November 20, 1988.
