The club has a long rivalry with Alfonso Ugarte de Chiclín, and matches between the two teams are known as "Classic Trujillano".
Founded on November 16, 1959, the institution was born from the initiative of the Victor Lazarte Hospital volleyball players, who after losing support from their institution resorted to the descendants of Carlos Alberto Mannucci Finochetti, who had died three years earlier, to request their sponsorship and continue to participate in local tournaments. Accepting this, Carlos José Mannucci Vega and her mother, Laura Vega Mannucci started the Club Social y Deportivo Carlos A. Manucci.
Initially, the club competed in local volleyball and basketball tournaments and achieved great performances in every tournament they participated in. The Club at that time was funded by the Carlos A. Mannucci SA company and after they bought Mariscal Ramón Castilla Club's place on the local football tournament started participating in Trujillo's football competitions.
Amateur Era (1959 - 1965)
In 1967 the club achieved the local tournament's title and proceed along the road of the Copa Perú, winning the sympathy of the people of Trujillo who had mostly followed Alfonso Ugarte de Chiclín, but would start cheering for Los Carlistas from then on.
Beginnings of professionalism
In April 1968 Mannucci played the final of the Copa Perú in Lima and won on the final match day after defeating FBC Melgar by 1-0 with a goal by Inocencio La Rosa. This win allowed the club to displace Sport Chorrillos from Talara in the table, which crowned them as champions and gave them promotion to Professional Football. That team was led by Juan Honores whose starting line up were: Jose Vargas, Maúrtua, Oscar Villalobos, Soto, Primitivo Zapata, Yanez, Aguero, Molina, Vargas Mendoza and Perez Serrano. Its first win on the top flight of Peruvian football was on July 21, 1968 on matchday five against Alianza Lima in the capital by 2-1 with goals from Victor Yanez and Jorge Quipuzco before 7,383 spectators at Estadio Lolo Fernandez.
Promotion to first division
Unfortunately the rules of the tournament called for the relegation of two teams, one from Lima and the other from the rest of the country. Therefore despite finishing in ninth place, as all teams between the 10th to the 16th place were from Lima, Mannucci was relegated. Even so, in 1969 they again became Copa Peru champions after they won every match of final hexagonal outdoing FBC Melgar and San Lorenzo de Chiclayo, ascending to the top flight of Peruvian football once more. The team line up was: Jose Vargas, Ruben Rivas, Cervera, Oscar Villalobos, Cespedes, Quintos, Cossio, Oscar Herrera, Garcia Zevallos and Quipusco who were directed by Manuel Ortega.
In the 2008 Copa Perú, the club classified to the Regional Stage, but was eliminated by Comerciantes Unidos.
Mannucci and Alfonso Ugarte de Chiclín have a great rivalry, but also during the late 60s and the 70s when both teams represented in the national football Trujillo and fought to have the preference of the fans Trujillo. Alfonso Ugarte victorious at the first edition of the Copa Perú and Mannucci it did in the second and third, but the Carlists continued in professional football and took a Ugarte ventaje never returned.
After falling tricolor in 1994, the rivalry between the two teams was also apparent in Trujillo with big league games played to packed stadium, although by Ugarte little investment in recent years has undermined the traditional power and expectation "classic Trujillo"
