Moctezuma de Orizaba was a former Mexican football team that played in the Liga Mexicana de Football Amateur Association prior to the professionalization and development of the Mexican first division. The club was based in the city of Orizaba and folded in 1954.


The club was founded in 1932 by workers from the Montezuma brewery in Orizaba Veracruz. The team was created to play sports in their spare time and once the owner of the brewery saw the men he decided to sponsor the club and so the club took on the brewery name Club Moctezuma de Orizaba and joined the amateur league in Veracruz.

Moctezuma club is remembered for being the first club from Veracruz to play in the amateur league in Mexico City, when they joined the league in 1940.
