The club has been playing in the lower divisions of the Paraguayan league for several decades and their most notable achievements are the three second-place finishes they achieved when they were playing in the first division.[1]

History[edit]

The club was founded right before Christmas day on December 23, 1906. Its main founders were Flaviano Díaz, Héctor Díaz, Lino Bogado, Miguel Ferraro and Antonio Tavarozzi, being Flaviano Díaz its first president ever.
