Football has been the main activity of the club since its foundation, although Ben Hur has achieved important titles in basketball as well. In its early years, Ben Hur started playing in the local league of Rafaela, but it was not until 1997 when Ben Hur left the regional tournaments to join the Argentine Football Association. The club subsequently won the Torneo Argentino A (the regionalized third division of the Argentine football league system) in 2004 promoting to Primera B Nacional. Then Ben Hur would be relegated to upper divisions and currently plays in the Torneo Argentino B.
Ber Hur football stadium is the Estadio Parque Barrio Ilolay.

Famous quotes containing the word football:
“...Im not money hungry.... People who are rich want to be richer, but whats the difference? You cant take it with you. The toys get different, thats all. The rich guys buy a football team, the poor guys buy a football. Its all relative.”
—Martina Navratilova (b. 1956)
“People stress the violence. Thats the smallest part of it. Football is brutal only from a distance. In the middle of it theres a calm, a tranquility. The players accept pain. Theres a sense of order even at the end of a running play with bodies stewn everywhere. When the systems interlock, theres a satisfaction to the game that cant be duplicated. Theres a harmony.”
—Don Delillo (b. 1926)
“... in the minds of search committees there is the lingering question: Can she manage the football coach?”
