In field hockey, the club is affiliated to amateur Córdoba Field Hockey Federation,[1] where its teams compete.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1913 as Club Atletico Talleres de Córdoba by workers of the Córdoba Central Railway, with support from the company. In 1914 Talleres joined the Córdoba local league.

In 1969 the team played for the first time in the Argentine Primera División in the Nacional Championship. During the 70's, the heyday of the Córdoba local league in the national scene, they participated several times in the Nacional championship, on 1976 Luis Ludueña was the championship top scorer with 12 goals, in the 1977 Nacional Championship Talleres finished in second place, losing to Independiente the finals on the away goals rule, and on 1978 José Reinaldi scored 18 goals and was the championship top scorer. Talleres contributed three players to the Argentine squad that won the 1978 FIFA World Cup, with Talleres' captain Luis Galván as a starter in the final as a center back. Miguel Oviedo and Jose Daniel Valencia were substitutes. The '78 WC team featured several other prominent players that got their start in the golden era of the Córdoba local league, such as Mario Kempes and Osvaldo Ardiles, both at Instituto Atletico Central Cordoba in the early 70's.

Starting in 1980, Talleres became a regular of the Metropolitano championship and finished in third place.

Talleres played in the Argentine Primera División until the 1993 Torneo Clausura when Talleres was relegated to the Primera B Nacional. Talleres was promoted to Argentine Primera División after the 1993–94 championship, but was once again related after a poor performance in 1994–95 season. The following season, the club finished first during the Clausura tournament of the Second Division but lost the Championship to Huracán de Corrientes.

In 1998, during a game (later remembered by fans as "The Final of the Millennium," Talleres won its first Argentine title, the 1997/98 Primera B Nacional championship on penalty kick shootout against all-time rival Belgrano de Córdoba, earning them a promotion to the First Division. Next year the club won its first and only international title, the 1999 Copa Conmebol (the precurssor of the current Copa Sudamericana)[2][3][4][5][6] [7] [8] against CSA from Brazil.

The following season, Talleres' good performance in first division qualified the team to play the 2001 Copa Mercosur and the 2002 Copa Libertadores, being the first and only team from Córdoba to qualify for those continental tournaments. Galleres reached the round of 16 in the Mercosur, only to lose against Gremio. In Copa Libertadores, Galleres had a poor performance, being eliminated in the first stage.

Despite finishing in third place during the Torneo Clausura tournament of the 2003-04 season and qualifying for the Copa Libertadores once again, Talleres was relegated, due to poor results in the previous 2 seasons, after losing to Argentinos Juniors in the promotion/relegation play-off. By Argentine rules, the team lost its Libertadores bid because of this.

In 2008-09 Talleres was dismissed once again, this time to the Torneo Argentino A via the point average system despite finishing in 12th place of 20 teams in Primera B Nacional. Recently, Talleres has promoted to Primera B Nacional.

On November 15, 2010, the IFFHS produced a report on the top 200 teams in the American continent from 2001 to that date. Talleres was #130, the highest position for a Córdoba Province team in the ranking.

In May, 2013, Talleres promoted to Primera B Nacional after defeating San Jorge by 1-0.[9]
