River and its history: part three
We had left River entrenched in the first division and already having achieved a national and international title. In addition, after several moves, owners of a stadium with capacity for 40 a thousand spectators which, for the canons of the time, was impressive (and even more impressive was the fact that capacity was filled in almost all the opportunities in which it was used).
In fact, the stadium was so impressive that it was chosen to host the 1929 Copa América. This circumstance is by no means less, as it set a very important precedent that was held over time: the River stadium (even today, which is another one), is the main venue of the Argentina football team, who uses it 90% of the time he plays home.
River River begins to participate in professional football
Two years later, another historical event, not only for River but for Argentine sport: in 1931 the first championship is played football professional, in which River finishes third. It would have to wait another year, until 1932, for another fact that remains not only in history but in the soul of the millionaire fan: the club revolutionizes the pass market of the time hiring Carlos Peucelle and Bernabé Ferreyra , being the only South American club in the history of football in making the most expensive signing in the world . The tournament ends with River and Independiente tied in first place, so they go to a tiebreaker match. Played on neutral court (the old Gasometer), River wins 3-0. They guessed: one goal by Ferreyra, another by Peucelle and the third Zatelli. River had just gotten his first professional title. Ferreyra was also the scorer of the tournament with 43 goals.
Hipólito Azema nació en Buenos Aires, en los comienzos de la década del 80. No se sabe desde cuándo, porque esas cosas son difíciles de determinar, le gusta contar historias, pero más le gusta que se las cuenten: quizás por eso transitó los inefables pasillos de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la Universidad de Buenos Aires. Una vez escuchó que donde existe una necesidad nace un derecho y se lo creyó.
