The club is currently playing in the highest Guatemalan league, the Liga Nacional. Their home venue is the Estadio La Pedrera in the nation's capital. Nicknamed Cremas (or Creams), they are the most successful club in Guatemala, having surpassed its arch-rival Municipal. The club is considered the second most popular football club in Guatemala.
Founded in 1949, they were adopted by the Ministry of Communications. They have boasted many great local players as well as some impressive foreign imports. As of May 2015, they have won 30 league titles, which puts them over Municipal's record of 29. Also, they have won 5 domestic cup titles as well as 2 major UNCAF club titles.
The team's ownership was associated with the Garcia-Granados family (that of former Guatemalan President Miguel García Granados) and the Arzu family (that of another former president, Alvaro Arzu).
The team went 9 championships without a single title, but it finally ended the drought by winning Apertura 2008. Since, Comunicaciones has failed to win the last three championships, one going to Jalapa and the last two going to Municipal. Comunicaciones won the title again on December 19, 2010 against archrival Municipal on a penalty shootout. On January of 2011, Comunicaciones fans received great news when a group of investors decided to invest on "Los Cremas", with the investment, came new world class players such as the goalkeeper Guillen, defenders Carrillo and Montepeque, midfielders Cardenas and Zavala, and the forwards Cardenas, Reyna, and Ochoa who were signed to the club with one mission in mind: To win the CONCACAF Champions League.
