Colegio Nacional Iquitos is a Peruvian football team based in the city of Iquitos which was founded in 1926. CNI is the biggest club in the city of Iquitos and currently is not playing in any league. At the beginning of 2012 CNI withdrew from Peruvian Segunda División and chose to play in the 2012 Copa Perú, after being relegated from Primera División on 2011.


On May 20, 1926 there was a meeting of 47 alumni of the Colegio Nacional Iquitos, their principal, Pedro A. del Águila Hidalgo and Isabel Aguilar, with the purpose of establishing the Asociación Deportiva Colegio Nacional Iquitos.

This club represented Iquitos in professional Peruvian football for 20 years, between 1973 and 1992. Their best performance was achieved in 1977, when they tied for first with FBC Melgar at the end of the first stage of the national championship, after a win in Cusco against Cienciano with a Henry Perales goal. In the subsequent phase for the national title and Copa Libertadores qualifiers, the team could not maintain their first-place position and lost the opportunity to win the championship.

Notable football players played for CNI such as national team starters Otorino Sartor, Juan "Papelito" Caceres and Ramon Quiroga; notable defenders such as César Adriazola, Juan Manuel Toyco, Roberto Arrelucea, Ernesto Guillén, Florentino Bernaola and Israel Quijandría; in addition to forwards Juan Jose Oré, Bernabé Navarro, Ernesto Neyra, Juan Michael of the Eagle, Nehemías Mera, and Richard Vinatea.

In 1992, CNI had a surprising beginning under manager Henry Perales ranking second in the first half of the Decentralizado 1992. However, institutional problems arose and the team did not produce the same results that in the second half of the tournament and CNI was relegated after a 5–0 loss against León de Huánuco.

On December 11, 2008, CNI returned to the top flight through the Copa Perú. CNI was runner-up in the final stage of the 2008 Copa Perú in a decisive group stage match against Atlético Torino which ended in a 1–1 draw. CNI defeated eventual champions Sport Huancayo 1–0 in the final round opener and also tied 2–2 with Cobresol F.B.C. of Moquegua.

After spending two years in Peru's highest tier, the club descended in 2011 after finishing last of the season. It decided not to participate in the Peruvian Segunda División but moved to the regional stage of the 2012 Copa Perú where it ended a short two-game campaign after finishing second in their group with 3 points.
