Club Ferro Carril Oeste Basquet, or Ferro Basquet, is a professional basketball team based in Caballito, Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is a part of the multi-sports Club Ferro Carril Oeste.



In 1968, Ferro was promoted to the first division of the Buenos Aires Basketball Association. In the 1970s, Ferro developed a strong rivalry with Obras Sanitarias. Ferro became the first Argentine team to win the South American Club Championship, when they won it in 1981. They also won the South American Club Championship in 1982 and 1987, and finished 2nd at the same tournament in 1986.

When the top Argentine League began in 1985, Ferro's main rival became Atenas de Córdoba. Ferro won the Argentine League championship in 1985 and 1986, finished 2nd in 1987, and also won it 1989. They also competed at the Club World Cup in 1981, 1986, and 1987, and they were that competition's runner-up in 1986.

At the end of 2003-04 season, Ferro was relegated to the Argentine second division, the Torneo Nacional de Ascenso (TNA). The team played there until 2015, when Ferro returned to LNB after Ciclista Juninense was relegated to TNA.
