Club Atlético Tiro Federal Argentino (mostly known just as Tiro Federal or Tiro Federal de Rosario) is an Argentine football club from the city of Rosario, in Santa Fe Province. The team currently plays in Torneo Argentino A, the third division of the Argentine football league system.


Founded on March 29, 1905, Tiro Federal was one of the founding members of the Rosario amateur league in 1907, which the team would win in 1920, 1925 and 1926. In 1944, Tiro Federal affiliated to Argentine Football Association, 13 years after the professionalization of the game, where the team competed in the second division, although it was later relegated to the third division after a restructure of the national leagues in 1949. In 1962 Tiro Federal withdrew its team 12 rounds before the end of the competition and was expelled from the AFA. Tiro then returned to play in the Rosario league, but then financial problems made the club leave the local league.

Businessman Carlos Dávola took over the management of the club at the end the 1990s, and started a very ambitious plan. In 1997 Tiro won the local second division, and then the first division in 1999, 2000 and 2001. At the same time it participated in Torneo Argentino B (the regionalized fourth division) in the 1998–99 season, finishing in second place and winning promotion to Torneo Argentino A.

After winning the Clausura 2003 tournament of Torneo Argentino A, Tiro reached Nacional B (national second division), and the next season they won the Apertura 2004 of that league, obtaining a wonderful present for its 100th birthday: the right to play in the Primera División Argentina.

At the end of their first tournament in the First Division, in the 2005 season, Tiro Federal ended 19th out of 20 teams. However, one of its players, Javier Cámpora, ended as the top scorer of the tournament. On April 8, 2006, Tiro Federal was relegated to Primera B Nacional, the second division of Argentine football.

At the end of 2010–11 season, after spending four years in the second division, Tiro federal was relegated to Torneo Argentino A the regionalized third division in Argentina.


Tiro Federal's stadium is located at the Ludueña neighborhood of Rosario. Known as "El Fortín de Ludueña" (Ludueña's Fortress), the stadium doesn't comply with regulations for first division matches. It currently plays at the Club Real Arroyo Seco's stadium in the nearby city of Arroyo Seco, and for specially important matches, at Newell's Old Boys' stadium.
