The club was established on October 17, 1916 in Valentín Alsina district of Greater Buenos Aires under the name "El Aeroplano",[1] In 1922 the football section separated from the club, adopting the name "Sportivo Alsina" honoring the district where the club had been established.[2]

The football squad began to compete that same year, achieving its first title in 1925 when the team won the Tercera División championship organised by dissident Asociación Amateurs de Football (AAm).[3]

In 1932 the club won the División Intermedia (the third level by then) championship, which allowed Sportivo Alsina to play at Primera División. One year later, the club would win another Tercera División championship playing with a reserve team.[4]

Sportivo Alsina debuted in the Argentine top division, Primera División, in 1933 where the squad finished 5° of 20 teams.[5] Sportivo Alsina continued to play at the top-flight until 1934 where all the clubs of the amateur league (AFA) were relegated as it merged with the professional one, Liga Argentina de Football.[6]

Sportivo Alsina disaffiliated from the Association in 1948. Since then, the institution has focused on several disciplines, practised at amateur level.[7][8]
