Fights and discussions in football are common currency, but who would imagine that a dispute would end in the founding of Deportivo Tesorieri . In 1933 a group of young Catamarqueans listened to a football match on their radio and a goal by Ferro against Boca triggered the discussion. Who is better goalkeeper, Juan Yustrich or Américo Tesorieri ?
Football problems are solved on the court, or on the street, but with football rules. They decided to set up a penalty championship to define which goalkeeper was best. On the one hand, there was the young Zampieri , who defended the honor of Tesorieri, on the other, Verdera , to protect Yustrich's pride.
Zampieri won the definition of penalties to Verdera and, that same afternoon, with all the bar, they decided to found a club in honor of Tesorieri. 86 years ago Prado and Tucumán streets were born to the Americo Tesorieri Sports Club with Carlos Scidá as its founder and first president.
The club today
Today the club is located in Av. Belgrano 960 in San Fernando de Catamarca and its social life is not limited to professional football. The Tesorieri community features figure skating, kick boxing and a children's football school.
A few months ago Tesorieri won undefeated his fifth Catamarqueña League, which made it the most winning team of the last decade in that province. October is a different month for the club and its fans, as every 13 of that month the institution's birthday is celebrated. A club that was born from a discussion and was created as a tribute to an archer in the best way: a definition by penalties.
Currently Deportivo Tesorieri is located in second position, three points from Atletico Policial. So far Tesorieri is the only team in the league that remains undefeated without having lost a single match.
