After a friendly football match between "Mendoza" and "Mitre" with the second team being the winner, the club was established naming it "Club Atlético Mitre" honoring former president of Argentina who had died a few years before.

One of the most notable Mitre's footballers, Segundo Luna, was part of the Argentina national team that won a silver medal at the 1928 Summer Olympics.[2]
