Comunicaciones Fútbol Club S.A., better known as Comunicaciones F.C., based in Guatemala City are one of the most popular and successful soccer clubs in Guatemala. Communicaciones has won 30 National Championships, including having won six consecutive titles, the most of any Guatemalan club team.

History[edit]

Comunicaciones origins date back to the 1920s to previous incarnations as Hospicio FC and España. Club Comunicaciones was formed in 1949 after Colonel Carlos Aldana Sandoval, then Minister of Telegraphs and Communications, took charge of the team and renamed it Comunicaciones (Communications).

The club plays its home games at the Estadio Cementos Progreso which has a capacity of 17,022. In addition to its 30 league titles, Communicaciones has won eight league Cups and ten Supercups. In international competition, Communicaciones has garnered 2 UNCAF Interclub Cups and one CONCACAF Champion’s Cup.

The color that identifies the club is white, which they began using in their kit shortly after its foundation, though initially the uniform of the club was Cream. Their historic arch-rival is Municipal and the two clubs compete in the Classico Chapin one of the greatest rivalries in Guatemalan football.
