The club in its Chiapas reincarnation was "founded" on 27 June 2002.[1] They played their first game on 3 August against Tigres de la UANL, losing 3–1, with Lucio Filomeno scoring the club's first ever goal. The club's first win came on 25 August, a 1–0 win over San Luis.[2] They finished the Apertura 2002, with a record of three wins, seven draws, and nine defeats. In the Clausura 2005 they finished with six wins, four draws, and seven defeats, and the head coach José Luis Trejo was sacked in the middle of the season. The club then named Antonio Mohamed as manager, but poor results meant another change with Fernando Quirarte taking over for the remainder of the season, bringing stability to the team and results improved.[3] They won the Chiapas Cup in 2004 and on 16 July 2005, they won the Chiapas Cup for a second time, by defeating Club Necaxa at the Victor Manuel Reyna Stadium. In February 2008 Sergio Almaguer was named manager of Chiapas.

In the Clausura 2006, under new coach Eduardo de la Torre, the club finished with the second best record over the regular season, and with it a place in the Play-Offs, where they lost in the Quarter-final to Club Deportivo Guadalajara.[3]

On May 20, 2013, it was announced that the club was sold to Grupo Delfines whose majority stake holder Amado Yañez is also an owner of the club Querétaro F.C. Stating low attendance and lack of sponsorship, the new owner announced he would be moving the team to Querétaro to replace Querétaro F.C. recently relegated to the second division. The owner added the fans of Querétaro deserved a top division club in their city.[4][5]
