Tigres B is the Primera División A affiliate of Tigres UANL. They play in the lower division to provide a training ground for prospective players aspiring to play in the Primera División de México. They currently play in San Nicolás de los Garza, Nuevo León.
They were born in 1991 as a Third Division team, and they were then called Tigrillos UANL (Tigrillos means "little tigers"). They played in Monterrey in those times.
In 1994 they won the Third Division championship and gained a right to participate in the Second Division. A few years later, in 1996, under the tutorship of Osvaldo Batocletti, they were again promoted, this time to Primera Division A.
The 1996 and 1997 seasons where the same that Tigres UANL were unfortunately relegated to the Primera Division A. This created the unique circumstance that both the main team and the affiliate competed in the same division.
However, Mexican rules forbade two teams to have the same name, so they were renamed as simply U de NL (in reference to the UANL which they represent, despite having just been privatized). They maintained the colors, but were moved to Saltillo. During these two seasons the two only brotherly clásicos, a derby played between the two Tigres teams, were played.
After Tigres UANL were promoted again to First Division, U de NL changed its name again to Tigrillos.
In 1998 they won the Primera División A Verano 1998, however they were not promoted to First Division, because they were defeated by CF Pachuca in the promotion game (between the champion of Verano and the champion of Invierno championships, today Verano has been changed to Clausura and Invierno has been changed to Apertura). Interestingly, CF Pachuca has defeated Tigres UANL in the First Division finals twice, creating a rivalry between CF Pachuca and Tigres UANL fans.
Tigrillos then played the Final of the Verano 2002 against Club San Luis, and achieved only runner-up position.
Due to the cost of maintaining the affiliate, in 2003, 'Tigrillos' moved to Mexico City under the administration of Club América and were called Tigrillos Coapa. This only lasted a year.
In 2004 they moved to Los Mochis and where named Tigrillos Broncos. In Clausura 2005 they were renamed Tigres Los Mochis.
The 2007-2008 season has Tigres Los Mochis moving to Reynosa, Tamaulipas.
The 2008-2009 season has Tigres Reynosa moving to San Nicolás de los Garza, Nuevo León, and become the Tigres B
