Club Social y Deportivo Central Ballester, simply known as Central Ballester is an Argentine football club based in General San Martín Partido of Greater Buenos Aires. The team currently plays in Primera D, the 5th division of Argentine football league system.

History[edit]

The club was founded on October 26, 1974, by a group of fans who did not accept the closure of the club where they used to meet (Club Atlético Central Argentino). Not conceived as a continuity of the original, Central Ballester promoted to Primera C but soon returned to the lowest division of AFA affiliated football.

Central Ballester's uniform colors and pattern are based on Rosario Central's kit, and its squad and supporters are nicknamed the same as the City of Rosario club (Canallas) as well.

During the 1995 Torneo Apertura, the team clothes (including the jersey uniforms worn on field) were stolen from the club lockers. Consequently Central Ballester began a desperate search for new equipment in order to assist to play the next fixture but the club had not enough money to buy new uniforms due to its debts (something common in lowest level of the Argentine football). The solution came from the club Rosario Central which donated its own uniforms with the badge and sponsors printed on jerseys. Central Ballester won the 1995 Apertura using the Rosario Central original jerseys for most of that tournament.[1]
