This June, the Basque Argentine Club of Concordia, Argentina, which has been recognized with a Declaration of Legislative Interest for its cultural, social, and sporting commitment and contributions, is turning 100.

As the article we bring you today, published on the website of Elentrerios, aptly puts it, “100th anniversaries aren’t celebrated every day”.  This milestone makes this institution, which was founded by Basques and which has become a key thread in the social and sporting fabric of the area, part of that select group of New World institutions that were founded by Basques in the New World to get to celebrate its centenary.

That’s a century’s worth of vicissitudes, and problems, but the end result is a vibrant, thriving club that gives many fellow citizens to enjoy Basque pelota.

Our congratulations to this institution, originally named “Basque Friends Club”, which has gone on to become a meeting point for all the residents of Concordia.

The only thing missing would be an Ikurriña on the façade: it would look very much at home there.
