Club Pucará was founded in 1943 by young players that had left Gimnasia y Esgrima de Buenos Aires (GEBA) as a result of several disagreements with the managers of that club. Pucará was founded in the Burzaco district of the Greater Buenos Aires.

During the 1952 Ireland rugby union tour of South America, Pucará defeated the Ireland national rugby union team 11-6.

Since then, many Pucará players have gone on to be selected for the Argentina national team. Originally just a rugby club, Club Pucará has developed a competitive field hockey section in recent years.
