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


The idea of forming a club dedicated exclusively to the practise of rugby union was originated in 1924, after the GEBA team arrived to play a match which had to be postponed due to a horse riding was being held on the rugby field.[3]

After some met were celebrated, twelve former GEBA players founded Club Curupaytí. The name was chosen honoring the Asalto de Curupaytí, an attack of Argentine troops over the Paraguayan fort of Curupaytí, during the Paraguayan War (also called "War of the Triple Alliance") [4] In 2011, Curupaytí was promoted to first division and stayed there for one year, being relegated to second division at the end of 2012.
