San Juan Jabloteh Football Club is a football club located in San Juan, Trinidad and Tobago that plays in the country's TT Pro League. The team plays its home games in Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo, Trinidad.


The club was founded in 1974, with the stated objective to "uplift the socio-economic and moral condition of the young people of San Juan and its environs." Upon the creation, by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association, of a Semi-Professional League in 1994, San Juan Jabloteh converted itself from a youth organization into a professional football club. With the backing of CL Financial in 1996, the club significantly expanded its operations. From 1997 to 1999, the team finished fourth in the Semi-Professional League in three consecutive years.

Upon the creation of Trinidad and Tobago's first professional league in 1999, San Juan Jabloteh became one of the league's founding members. Since joining, the club has been the league's most successful club, winning the league championship in 2002, 2003–04, 2007 and 2008. San Juan Jabloteh have also represented the league in the CONCACAF Champions' Cup in 2004.

According to the team's website, "Through its name of the Club identified itself with one of the national birds of the country – the Oil or Devil Bird-which lives in the Aripo Caves. Originally, the French settlers called the Bird: Les Diables Oiseaux which were translated by the local settlers into Diablotin and finally Jabloteh."[1]

In July 2012, the club chose to withdraw the senior team from the TT Pro League, having already ceased to work on youth football projects and chose to concentrate on their netball team.[2]
