Club Deportivo Brasilia, usually known simply as Brasilia are a Salvadoran professional football club based in Suchitoto, El Salvador.

History[edit]

In 1960, a group met in Suchitoto city hall and decided to form a football team named Xotlan. However, after a few months the club changed their name to Club Deportivo Brasilia Suchitoto, named after Brazil who were the football world champions at the time and after Brazil's newly named capital city.[1] Early players included Gregorio Marroquín, Roberto Guardado, Lito Cañas, Nelson Cañas, Orlando Coto, Roberto Santamaría, Mauricio Montalvo and Mauricio Cañas.

Later on Brasilia were able to obtain the services of Jorge "Magico" Gonzalez and the Paz brothers (Rolando and Ricardo) for a few games.

In the 2012 Clausura, Brasilia had their best season in their history reaching the Segunda División Grand Final, however despite Walter Casco scoring in the 77th minute to level the game, the club went on to lose in extra time with a goal late in second half of extra time.

However, after losing their financial support and coach Milton Melendez in 2015, Brasilia were relegated to the Salvadoran Third Division.
