José Gálvez FBC is a Peruvian football club based in Chimbote, Ancash. The club was founded in 1951 under the name Manuel Rivera after the famous Chimbote born footballer Manuel Rivera. The club was forced to change its name because the FPF did not allow clubs to be named after living people. Then on 11 November 1963 the club decided the new name would be José Gálvez FBC.
More recently the club played in the Peruvian Second Division and finished as champions in 2011. Thus they were promoted back to the Torneo Descentralizado in the 2012 season only to be relegated on the 2013 and become the Peruvian team with the most relegations from the Peruvian First Division.
The club was founded on 27 October 1951 as Club Deportivo Manuel Rivera in recognition of the famous Chimbote born footballer Manuel Rivera, who played for the Peruvian national team and at that time for Deportivo Municipal. The club kept its original name for about the next eleven years, but then the Peruvian Football Federation decided against allowing clubs to be named after living people. As a result, the club changed its name on 11 November 1963 to José Gálvez Foot Ball Club. The club makes its season debut with its new name in 1964 in the First Division league of Chimbote. The club's first victory was a 2-0 win over Strong Boys on 18 October 1964, with goals from Gonzalo Ponce and Chiang.
In 1971 José Gálvez managed to finish in third place of the 1971 Copa Perú which that season allowed promotion to the top three teams in the Final group stage. Consequently the club's first ever appearance in the Peruvian First Division was in the 1971 Torneo Descentralizado season.
Jose Galvez FBC has had a long-standing rivalry with Sport Ancash.
