Club Social y Deportivo Juventud Retalteca was a Guatemalan professional football club based in Retalhuleu and who competed in the Liga Nacional, the nation's top footballing division.


Nicknamed Los Algodoneros (the Cotton pickers), the club was founded on 6 May 1951 by José Maria Olivar and Guillermo Gordillo. The club won promotion to Liga Mayor in 2009 [1] after spending years in the Primera División de Ascenso and defeated national champions C.D. Jalapa 5–0 in the season's opener on August 1, 2009.

In February 2012, a car accident in which midfielder Daniel Linares died left the team in shock.[2]

They were dissolved in 2012 after surmountable financial problems.[3]


They play their home games at the Estadio Dr. Óscar Monterroso Izaguirre.
