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 second-most successful club in Guatemala, behind arch-rival Municipal. The club is considered the most popular 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. They have won 25 league titles, only 4 short of Municipal's record of 28. Also, they have won 5 domestic cup titles as well as 3 major CONCACAF 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 C.D. Jalapa and the last two going to Municipal. Comunicaciones won the title again on December 19, 2010 against archrival Municipal on a penalty shootout.
