Founded in 1901, Atlético Club River Plate is the Buenos Aires based giant of Argentinian football. They have won the domestic league some 35 times. For thousands of Argentinians, the club is a way of life; a religion. The derby game between River Plate and city mega rivals, Boca Juniors or the ‘SuperClásico’ is one of the most fiercely contested football derbies on the planet. These two teams dominate Argentine football and boast at least 70% of the nation’s support between them. That is some fan base.

The deep bond between Atlético Club River Plate and his massive fan base is plain to see – it’s not like any other love. The official club web site publishes any fan photographs sent into them – with little if any filtering. Away Colours has visited the galleries that are complete with hundreds of fan photographs and has selected these gems for your perusal. Let the fans tell you how they feel about ‘Los Millonarios.’
