San Jorge is one of the youngest clubs of Argentina, having achieved some success in local football. In 2011 the club debuted in Torneo Argentino B where finished 2nd. on first stage. The team eliminated teams such as Chaco For Ever (which defeated 3–0 in Chaco), 9 de Julio de Morteros reaching the finals against Guaraní Antonio Franco. San Jorge was defeated so the team went to playoffs against a team from Torneo Argentino A.

San Jorge faced Comodoro Rivadavia's team Comisión de Actividades Infantiles, winning the decisive match 3–1 as visitor therefore promoting to Argentino A.[1]

On 23 June 2019, during the 2018–19 Torneo Federal A promotion play-off final second leg against Alvarado, San Jorge refused to finish the match in protest at the refereeing.[2] Their players sat down on fifty minutes, before eventually walking off which led to the fixture being abandoned - which gave Alvarado promotion to Primera B Nacional.[2]
