Club Atletico Temperley has been around for quite a while, and while most of their time has been spent in lower divisions, they made it to Argentina’s Primera twice before going into bankruptcy in 1991. They came back to the fourth level of Argentine football in 1993 and has since then worked their way back up to the newly expanded first division where they currently play. They have two titles: a Primera B in 1974 and a Primera C in 1994-95. The club is known as La Celeste or Gasolero.
They are named after the city of Temperley in the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area, which is named after George Temperley, who arrived in Argentina from England in 1838. After working in various businesses, Temperley purchased a plot of land where he started a small farm. This area eventually grew into the city now known as Temperley. Goerge Temperley is also know as being one of the founders of the Rural Society of Argentina. He passed away in 1900.
