All the ups and downs

As I've done in every year of HEGS' existence, always at great inconvenience to myself (seriously, you wouldn't believe how long it takes to pull this information together for such a short post) you'll find here the only single page on the whole internet (I think) with all of Argentina's promotions and relegations, across every...

Ascenso TV rights

Argentine sides enter The Copa Sudamericana on Tuesday night, with Tigre hosting San Lorenzo in the first leg of their preliminary round tie as I type, but I'm buggered if I'm staying up until the thing finishes - the goals will be online on Wednesday night. Given the fuss over the Primera División TV rights... Continue Reading →

Treading new ground

After falling out with River Plate over the appalling pitch surface for the recent World Cup qualifier at home to Colombia, the AFA have submitted a request to FIFA that Rosario Central's stadium, El Gigante Del Arroyito, be accredited as an alternative venue. It's possible the qualifier against Brazil could be played there if the... Continue Reading →

Primera A(tlético)

Now, then, seems as good a time as any to have a quick look at how the first month or so of lower... Continue Reading →

All the ups and downs

With the completion at the weekend of the Promociónes, the 2007-2008 season is now complete in Argentina. Racing, of course, are the most notable survivors of the relegations playoffs, but there have been shocks in other divisions with little-fancied All Boys winning the Primera B championship, and Nueva Chicago losing their playoff to fall down...

Lower division roundup

Unión de Santa Fé beat Chacarita Juniors by a solitary goal on Sunday to derail the visitors' hopes of moving into the top two of B Nacional, and instead took second place for themselves. Juan José Serrizuela's 41st minute header separated the sides, to make up for Rubén Ferrer having two earlier goals disallowed (the first incorrectly). San... Continue Reading →
