Masantonio is the player with the best goal average in the history of the Argentina national team. Huracán is, together with Estudiantes (LP) and behind the other big five, the sixth club in the amount of players given to the national team in World Cups. Tucho Mendez is the top scorer in the Copa America and Guillermo Stabile was top scorer of the 1930 World Cup. In addition, Emilio Baldonedo, Herminio Masantonio and Tucho Mendez (all players from Globo) are the top scorers for Argentina against Brazil. Meanwhile, Guillermo Stabile and Cesar Menotti were two coaches of the National Team. Moreover, Globo is the only team in history to win an absolute top-class title (the 2014 Copa Argentina) and is the team that took the least amount of time to win an official tournament after being promoted, surpassing the mark of Rosario Central, who won the tournament in the 86-87 season.

7) With capacity for 50,000 spectators, the Tomas A. Duco is one of the most impressive stadiums in Argentina.

8) After Boca-River and Racing-Independiente, the Huracán-San Lorenzo match is considered the third most important derby.

9) Huracán has the record for ticket sales (it sold over 33,000) in a match not disputed by any of the other big five: it was in 1947 against Atlanta, and some 70,000 people watched, considering that the club members did not pay entry.

10) Huracán was the run-away winner of the poll conducted by the sports daily Olé (belonging to the Clarín group) about which team is to society "the sixth biggest of Argentine football." The vote, in which about 250,000 people participated, was conducted between October and December 2001 and Globo won 79,184 votes to 47,804 of Chacarita and 29,838 of Velez Sarsfield. In addition, Huracán also won the survey of participant fans with some 20,000 more votes than Velez and Chacarita, which represents a fairly accurate survey on the number of fans of each club. And if this were not enough, the glorious Globo de Parque de los Patricios was chosen the "sixth largest" in the internal voting of the journalists of Olé.
