Club Atlético Tucumán (mostly known as Atlético Tucumán) is an Argentine based in the city of San Miguel de Tucumán of Tucumán Province. Although several sports are practised at the club, Atlético is mostly known for its football team, which currently plays in the Primera B Nacional, the second division of the Argentine football league system.
The club was founded in 1902, which makes Atlético the oldest football club from the province of Tucumán.
Atlético has participated in nine seasons in the Primera division: eight seasons between 1973 and 1981, and a single season in 1984. The team's best ever performance in Primera División was on 1979, when reached the semi-finals of the Torneo Nacional.

The Tucumán Derby is played between Atlético and its longtime rival San Martín, both of the same city. The Santo (as San Martín is nicknamed) currently plays in the Torneo Argentino A, the regionalized third division of Argentine league system.
The stadium was constructed in 1922 by Spanish architect José Graña (1885-1950) with an original capacity for 5,000 spectators. It was inaugurated on May 21 of same year. Originally named as "Grand Stadium" due to being the largest of the North side of Argentina, Racing Club de Avellaneda was invited to play a friendly match versus Atlético Tucumán as part of the celebration. The stadium was named Monumental "José Fierro" in honor of a well-remembered Atlético's chairman.
