Club Atlético Aldosivi (usually referred simply as Aldosivi) is an Argentine football club based in the city of Mar del Plata. The institution was founded on March 29, 1913, and plays in the first division of the Argentine football league system, the Argentine Primera División. The club's name comes from the first two letters of the last name of their founders, Allard, Doulfus, Sillard, and Wiriott (the w was changed to a v because there was no W available to telegraph the official announcement).
In 1979, Aldosivi merged with two other clubs from Mar del Plata and was known by the name Defensores del Puerto until 1981 when it returned to the traditional name, which it still uses today.
The Estadio José María Minella is a stadium in the city of Mar del Plata, Argentina. It is owned and administrated by the Municipality of General Pueyrredón. Inaugurated for the 1978 FIFA World Cup hosted by Argentina, the stadium is currently used by local clubs Alvarado and Aldosivi to play their home matches.
The stadium is named after renowned football player and manager José María Minella, a native of Mar del Plata and regarded as one of the most notable footballers of that city.
