Club de Fútbol Oaxtepec was a former Mexican first division club that played in the city of Oaxtepec, Morelos in the late 1970s and early 1980s before being sold to Puebla, and subsequently to Torreón.

History[edit]

The club was formed in 1979 under the name of Club de Fútbol Oaxtepec-IMSS being that at that time Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social were the owners.

The club began to play in the Mexican Third Division in the 1979-80 season reaching the finals where they faced Águilas de la UPAEP beating them and crowing themselves champions, thus earning the promotion to the Segunda División Profesional.

The club played 2 years in the second division. In the first 1980-81 season, the club did not fare so well, it was in their second year 1981-82 when the club won the championship and the promotion to the Primera División de México after defeating Club Tepic, managed by Edelmiro Arnauda.

The club played its first professional game on September 3, 1982[1] in the Estadio Azteca against Club América which they lost 2-0. Starting Goalkeeper Ricardo La Volpe who had played for a number of Argentine and Mexican clubs retired that year. The club finished 4th in Group 3 with 32 points in 38 games played.

In the 1983-84 season, now retired goalkeeper Ricardo La Volpe took over as head coach and let the club to a 4th place finish in Group 4 with 33 points gained in 38 games. This marked the last year for the club which was sold and transferred to the city of Puebla, becoming Ángeles de Puebla. This club played from 1984–1989 in Puebla later to be sold to Torreón in 1989. It is currently known as Club Santos Laguna.
