Club Atlético Douglas Haig is an Argentine football club from Pergamino, Buenos Aires Province, which currently plays in the country's Third Division. The club is named in honour of Field Marshal Sir Douglas Haig, a victorious General from World War 1


In November 1918 a group of British workers on the Argentinian Central Railroad set up a football team to take part in the local soccer championship. This required the consent and support of the Chief of the railway, Mr. Ronald Leslie, who, as a condition, requested that the new club name itself in honour of Sir Douglas Haig, the Commander-in-Chief of the British Armies in Western Europe, who had just led them to victory in World War 1. Club Atlético Douglas Haig was thereby founded on 18 November 1918.[1]
