Alebrijes de Oaxaca Fútbol Club is a Mexican football team based in the city of Oaxaca, located in the state of Oaxaca. They play in the second tier of Mexican football league, Ascenso MX. The team was created when the Tecamachalco franchise won the Segunda División title and earned the promotion to the Ascenso MX. Due to poor infrastructure they were unable to participate, which led to the formation of the new Oaxaca franchise.


In the team's search for a new venue, the owners of the Tecamachalco franchise received support from the Oaxacan state government. They also received support from a group of businessmen led by Carlos Ojeda of Laredo, who wanted to bring professional football back to the state of Oaxaca.

On December 10, 2012, the president of the Liga MX, Ascenso MX and Decio de María made the official announcement at the state capital building of the start of a new football club.[2][3] The name of the club was changed to "Alebrijes" following a vote by the public. The new name refers to the colorful folk sculptures made in the state.

On July 20, 2013, they played their first Ascenso MX game, drawing 2–2 with Atlético San Luis. On April 9, 2014, Alebrijes lost the Clausura 2014 Copa MX finals against Tigres UANL by 3–0 at the Estadio Universitario.

On December 2, 2017, Oaxaca defeated FC Juárez on penalties to win the Apertura 2017 Ascenso MX tournament.[4]


Alebrijes de Oaxaca play their home matches at the Estadio Tecnológico de Oaxaca in Oaxaca City, Oaxaca. The stadium capacity is 14,950 people. Its surface is covered by natural grass.
