The club was founded on December 26, 1950 and quickly joined Mexican Second Division along with Zacatepec, Monterrey, Toluca, Deportivo Irapuato, Zamora, Querétaro, Morelia and Pachuca. Some clubs were newcomers, and some were rejoining the league. In their first league the club quickly became a contender and finished a couple of points behind the champion Zacatepec, who earned the chance to join the Primera División de México. The following years were also successful years, but not good enough to crown themselves.
In the 1954-55 tournament the club once again finished runner-up, this time just behind F.C. Atlas;, this time the club was allowed to be promoted after the federation decided to increase the number of clubs in the top division to 14. A playoff tournament was organized with 2 clubs from the first division along with the 11 and 12 place clubs from the first division clubs: Cuautla FC, Zamora, Querétaro, Atlante and Marte. With the result of Atlante remaining in the top division, joined by Cuautla FC and Zamora. Querétaro remained in the second division, joined by the relegated Marte.
In the 1955-56 season the club played its first tournament in the top league under the management of the Enrique Álvarez.The club had a terrible time in the top division and so lost the category, being relegated back to the second division, leaving its spot to C.F. Monterrey, who had been promoted.
In the 1956-57 season the club final won its first title led by the Argentine Raúl Leguizamón. This time the club took over the empty spot left by C.F. Monterrey, who a year ago had taken over the spot Zamora had left. That same year Puebla FC decided to leave the league, and so its spot was taken over by Atlético Morelia, marking this the first time 2 clubs from the state of Michoacán played in the top division.
The club once again lost the category in the 1959-60 tournament after playing 3 not-so-good tournaments, with its best season finish in 1957-58, finishing 7th with 25 points. In 1960 the club finished last under the management of Carlos Seville.
