Provincial Osorno is a football club based in Osorno, Los Lagos Region, Chile. In 2017 the club is going to play at the third tier of the Chilean football system, the Segunda División.

The club were founded on 5 June 1983 and then re-founded on 3 December 2012.

Between 1993 and 1998, a period of 6 years, they were continuously members of Chile's top division although they never finished higher than sixth.

Until 2009 the club also operated a basketball professional team, Provincial Osorno Basquetbol, They played in the Chilean Basketball Professional League.


Provincial Osorno were founded on 5 June 1983 by a group of amateur football and local authorities, who designed Sergio Toloza as the first Provincial Osorno's Chairman.

In July 1983, the club appointed Juan Soto as manager. Six local amateur players were included in the first squad. Later that year the club played their first official Primera B match against Lota Schwager, at the Estadio Bancario de Osorno (P. Osorno won 2–1).

Two years later the club became very popular, resulting in many home sell out crowds in the Estadio Parque Schott that season.

In their early campaigns Provincial Osorno struggles to show good results on the pitch.

Only in 1990, Provincial Osorno finally won the second division title to win promotion to the Primera Division for the first time, under the direction of manager Guillermo Yavar, but they finished near the bottom of the table and were relegated in 1991.

The return to the second division in 1992 owes a great deal to the appointment of manager Jorge Garcés, who brought new tactics and a new training regime resulting in an impressing campaign that year.

This time the club managed to stay in the top flight until 1998, with regular campaigns, with the exception of 1996, when, under the direction of manager Oscar "Cacho" Malbernat they finished 6th.

In 1999 they won promotion to the Primera Division in a playoff with Cobresal, returning immediately to the Primera B the next year.

Since then, the club struggles to show good results on the pitch with the notable exception of 2003 when they qualified to the Copa Sudamericana, having beating four First Division's teams in a row, only to lose against Universidad Católica on penalties, in the highly controversial second-leg match.

In 2006 the club was turned into a Sports' joint stock company.

On 25 November 2007 P. Osorno were crowned champions of the Primera B 2007, after beating Municipal Iquique 4–0 at Tierra de Campeones Stadium, and returned to the Primera Division for the 2008 season; losing the category that season and returning to the Primera B, again.

In 2010 the club were relegated to the semi-professional third tier Tercera División, after losing the match for the stay with Deportes Copiapó.

In 2012 the club played at the new third level professional league, the Segunda División, from where they were expelled the same year due to financial reasons.

The club were back in 2014, playing at the fifth tier of Chilean football system, the Tercera B, one year later they were promoted to the upper tier, the Tercera División, and in 2016 they were promoted again, this time to the third tier Segunda División.


The club first crest, unveiled in 1983, featured the Osorno Volcano with a football on the top, it was a very simple design, in black and white.

In 1996, the club adopted their new crest with different colours and a black bull (the club mascot) in the center.

In 2007, the club unveiled a modernised crest featuring both elements (the volcano and the bull) in a simplified style. It was elected with an open poll in the local newspaper Diario Austral de Osorno.

Provincial Osorno have a small fanbase, which derives support from a broad cross-section of the community. Fans traditionally come from Osorno itself; particularly the Francke, and Rahue areas of the city. Support from other towns like San Pablo, Purranque and Rio Negro, is very limited.

Provincial Osorno supporters' current main rivals are Deportes Puerto Montt (with whom they contest the "Clasico del Sur"), and Deportes Temuco.

There is no current rivalry with their other immediate neighbours Deportes Valdivia. This is mainly because the clubs have very rarely been in the same league. However, before going out of Primera B (1990), they were P. Osorno's biggest rivals.
