History

On Saturday 21 March 2009, during a match facing Barracas Bolívar (now Sportivo Barracas), 18 Lamadrid players were sent off after they got into a violent confrontation with Barracas' supporters. The fight started when a group of youth players from Lamadrid (who were watching the match on their seats) began a discussion with some Barracas' fans. The discussion soon turn into a fight and the players from both teams jumped from field to the grandstand to take part on the fight as well.[1][2]

Lamadrid won its second title in 2010–11 Primera C Metropolitana, therefore promoting to Primera B Metropolitana.[3] Nevertheless, the poor campaigns done by the team caused it was relegated again at the end of 2011–12 season, where finished at bottom of table.
