128th Argentine Open Begins Today!

La Dolfina vs Alegria Fish Creek & La Ensenada vs La Irenita

Today, Friday 12 November, sees the start of The 128th Argentine Open with the first two matches of the tournament: La Dolfina vs Alegria Fish Creek and La Ensenada vs La Irenita.
So far this year’s Argentine Triple Crown has seen wins for Ellerstina in The Tortugas Open and La Natividad in The Hurlingham Open. 
This year’s Argentine Open sees the usual ten teams compete, but unusually the Final is guaranteed not to be La Dolfina vs Ellerstina as both teams have been placed in League A. 
Today sees the start of the League A action, while League B begins tomorrow, Saturday 13 November with La Natividad vs Chapaleufú.
