History[edit]

Huirapuca SC was founded in the small town of Concepción, Tucumán on June 3, 1953. Playing in the Parque de la Joven Argentina, at the north of the city, the club had to share its installations with the local aeroclub, and playing fields were often used as a landing strip.

Today the clubs owns more than 13 hectares of installations, making it the largest Tucumán club outside of the capital San Miguel. Today around twenty different disciplines are practiced at the club, most notably rugby union, basketball, softball and field hockey.
