Universidad Pedagógica Nacional Francisco Morazán, most commonly known as UPNFM or Lobos (English: Wolves) is a Honduran football club, based In Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

The club currently plays in the Honduran Liga Nacional.

History[edit]

The club was founded on August 10, 2010 as a sports club for the university. By coincidence, that very same year a place opened up in the Liga Nacional de Ascenso. Until that year, major Honduran teams had fielded affiliates that competed in the Liga de Ascenso. A reform in the league structure forced the withdrawal of those teams, and allowed UPNFM to move right into the spot. The club's roster was drawn from students at the university; here too, however, the withdrawal of the affiliated clubs worked in their favor. UPNFM was an attractive loan partner for reserve players at Olimpia and Motagua because they could pursue a university degree while playing.[1]

On 4 June 2017, the club claimed their first title by winning the Clausura of the 2016–17 Liga Nacional de Ascenso.[2] Seven days later, they defeated Lepaera F.C. to earn promotion to the 2017–18 Honduran Liga Nacional franchise.[3]

UPNFM finished 6th in the Apertura and 8th in the Clausura, finishing comfortably clear of relegation and earning a second season of top flight football.
