History [ edit ]
The club is based in
Bahía Blanca, having been founded in 1910. [1 ]
In 1982 Olimpo played the Torneo Regional, where it lost in the Group 1 play-off to Mariano Moreno.
The team promoted to the first division for the
2002–03 season, staying until its relegation in the 2005–06 season. After winning the Apertura and Clausura of the Primera B Nacional in 2006–07 season, Olimpo returned to the first division. However, the team would be relegated during its first season back in the division, the 2007–08 season.
After two seasons back in the
Primera B Nacional, Olimpo won promotion for the third time to play the 2010–11 season in the Argentine topflight.
During the Apertura the club looked doomed to relegation again after Olimpo could only obtain 18 points in 19 games but in the Clausura the team performance improved. On March 20, 2011, the squad beat
Boca Juniors at the "Bombonera" for the first time in club's history. As a consequence of this, Olimpo went off the relegation zone, also becoming alone leaders of the championship for the first time in the history of the team. [3 ] [4 ]
