Parrillas One (pronounced Pah-ri-ya Oh-neh) is a Honduran football team based in San Pedro Sula, Cortés.

For the 2012–13 season they played at Estadio Alfredo León Gómez in Tela. They were first promoted to Liga Nacional de Futbol de Honduras in the 2013 where they confirmed they will remain in Tela. The club represents Parrillas y Repuestos One, an automobile body shop.


Etymology of Name[edit]

The name is originates from the automobile shop, Parrillas One. Parrillas stands for [car] grille due to, at the beginning the shop only painted front grille and bumpers, besides body. One (Oh-neh) is company owner's and club chairman's childhood nickname.[1]

Founding and Amateur era[edit]

The club was founded in 1993 as a leisure team for workers of the, at that time, car paint shop, Parrillas One. The team would play pick up games on Saturdays in an amateur fashion. The club did not participate in a league until one Saturday their rivals failed to show up. It was at this moment that owner, Luis García, decided to enroll the team in Liga Comercial Emin Abufelle, a league for company's football teams thus initiating the team's amateur era.[2]

Semi-Professional to Professionalism[edit]

In 2000, Parrillas One bought Palestino's spot in Segunda Division (Second Division). A year later the team reached their first Second Division final against Honduras Salzburg where they were defeated and lost a chance to win promotion to First Division.[3] They would again reach a final in 2010–11 Apertura, where luck turned into Parrillas favor and they defeated Yoro on 3–2 aggregated score. Since 2004, promotion to Liga Nacional has been contested by apertura and clausura winners. Parrillas as apertura champions, faced Atlético Choloma to decide promotion and once again lost a chance to play in the Honduran top-flight football.[4] The team club did not have to wait long to once again contest promotion as 2011–12 Clausura champions against Real Sociedad. Unluckily, for third time in their short history Parrillas lost a chance for promotion.[5]

First Division[edit]

Things would turn for the better as Parrillas, once again, for three years straight, reached a promotion final as 2012–13 Clausura champions. They faced Juticalpa in a new promotion system of one leg, in a neutral stadium. Comayagua was chosen to host the promotion final, where an exciting match ended 1–1 in regular time and Parrillas became the new Liga Nacional team for 2013–14 winning 5–4 in penalties.

They made their debut at Honduras' top level on 10 August 2013 against Vida and won 2–1.[6] They qualified to the play-offs in their first tournament by finishing in 6th place. They qualified over Victoria, finishing with the same points and goal difference but scoring 1 more goal.
