A real football city.

Colón and Union are the two professional football teams that exist in the city of Santa Fe. Both militate in the Argentine first division and, like almost all classic, have a very similar record in their rivalry. Unión was victorious in recent editions, but Colón had very long streaks of “paternity”, with the addition that, recently, he had world fame for having played an international final, with musical hit included, by the legendary Palmeras.

Santa Fe is one of the few Argentine cities where the popularity of the local derby is much higher than that of the Buenos Aires superclassic.
