Club Pucará is an Argentine rugby union and field hockey club based in the Burzaco district of Greater Buenos Aires.[2] Pucará is mostly known for its rugby union and women's field hockey teams. Other activities hosted by the club are gymnastics and tennis.

The rugby union team currently plays in the Torneo de la URBA Grupo I, the first division of the Unión de Rugby de Buenos Aires league system.


Club Pucará was founded in 1943 by young players that had left Gimnasia y Esgrima de Buenos Aires (GEBA) as a result of several disagreements with the managers of that club. Pucará was founded in the Burzaco district of the Greater Buenos Aires.

Since then, many Pucará players have gone on to be selected for the Argentina national team. Originally just a rugby club, Club Pucará has developed a competitive field hockey section in recent years.
