Club El Porvenir is an Argentine football club, located in the Gerli district of Lanús Partido in Greater Buenos Aires. The team currently plays in Primera D, the regionalised fifth division of the Argentine football league system.


The club was established on 12 September 1915 in Villa Porvenir, Avellaneda Partido, primarily as a Greco-Roman wrestling club. The football team debuted in official tournaments in 1918, playing its home games at the Club Sígame Si Puede ("Follow me if You can", in Spanish, current Sportivo Dock Sud). In 1919 El Porvenir acquired the field where its first stadium would be built, winning the title that allowed the squad to promote to the second division, current Primera B.

During the decade of 1920, El Porvenir rented several fields until it inaugurated its own one, in Lanús, where the team played until 1939. The first international match played by El Porvenir was on 12 October 1920, against Uruguayan team Liga Nacional de Montevideo. In 1941 the club was disaffiliated by the Association due to it did not have a field, so El Porvenir began to build an stadium in Gerli, Lanús Partido. The stadium was opened on 4 April 1942, then enlarged in 1943 to host 10,000 spectators. This venue was used until 1968.

The current stadium was erected in lands donated by the Government of Argentina and was inaugurated on 24 April 1971. The first match played there was against defunct club Defensores de Almagro, which ended 1-1.
