On November 1942, Jorge Gutiérrez established "Club Colegial Juan Martín de Pueyrredón", which affiliated to Argentine Rugby Union one year later. The youth divisions of the club began to participate in the UAR competitions. The "Club de Rugby Pueyrredón" was founded on June 11, 1953 by Gutiérrez along with players Carlos Montero, Angel Guastella and Juan Carlos Saavedra. The name paid tribute to Juan Martín de Pueyrredón, an Argentine brigadier general from the 19th century. Pueyrredón's headquarters were located in Bolívar street of Buenos Aires.

In 1956, Pueyrredón won the Segunda División championship promoting to Primera División. In 1961 the club acquired a land in Boulogne, Buenos Aires where the field would be built, after years of playing in lent grounds.[3]

In 2010 Pueyrredón was relegated to the second division, along with Banco Nación.[4]
