Nacional Potosí is a Bolivian association football team from Potosí.

History[edit]

Nacional Potosí is one of Bolivia's oldest football clubs, it was founded on April 8, 1942.[1] The team has mainly played in the second tier of Bolivian football. In 2004 it came under the ownership of Emilio Alave and the team started to mount a serious promotion challenge, coming close in 2007 when they lost to Aurora in the relegation play-off. Nacional bounced back the following year and won the Copa Simon Bolívar, gaining promotion to the first division. In 2009 Nacional made its debut in the Liga de Fútbol Profesional Boliviano but the club couldn't survive its first season and was relegated. In 2010, Wilfredo Condori took over as chairman and the side won both the Copa Simon Bolívar and won promotion back to the first division. Celebrating its diamond anniversary in 2017, the side are playing in the first division and are in the Copa Sudamericana for just the second time in their history.
