Plaza Amador is a Panamanian football club, that currently plays in Liga Panameña de Fútbol. It is one of the oldest teams in Panama.


The Social Club and Plaza Amador were founded in 1955 by a legendary figure of Panamanian sports, León Cocoliso Tejada (1927–1982), whom through the years developed a team designed to educate and train players that brought them and the team from inferior divisions up to the first division. After León's death, Andrés Villa, Daniel Vàsquez and Enrique Cajar gathered the colors of the club and returned it to the first division, where they won the distritorial championship, Copa JVC and the first ANAPROF championship.
