Chiapas FC

The Chiapas FC, ​​until May 2013 Jaguares de Chiapas Chiapas and therefore also called Jaguar ( cf. club logo ), is a Mexican football club based in Tuxtla Gutiérrez.

The club participates in the Primera División de Mexico since the Apertura 2002. The game is played in 1982 for 6,000 spectators built Estadio Víctor Manuel Reyna, which was extended in 2002 and now features more than 25,000 spectators.


On 27 June 2002 gave Alejandro Burillo, the owner of the Pegaso Group, announced that the state of Chiapas will feature in the upcoming season over a Erstligateam with the name Jaguares de Chiapas. Teams of Home Premiere in La Liga August 17, 2002 was no less than the most popular team in the country, Chivas Guadalajara. The game ended 1-1, which was quite a decent result for the ambitious newcomer. But the club owner Alejandro Burillo beleibe is not a patient man. In the first season alone, there were three different coaches used. Two were fired during the season and the third by the end of season 2002/ 03. Nevertheless - or perhaps because of the many coaching change - the new team had finished the season in last place in the total annual table. The following year, it ran much better, a sensational third place in the overall annual ranking was occupied at the end of the season.

The total annual ranking is in Mexico but less important than the group results. Here, the Jaguares had after two last places in the first season only occupies fourth place in the Apertura 2003/ 04. However, in the Clausura they surprised all experts. With 42 points and only one defeat, they were not only winners of their group, but were the best team back round at all. But in the quarter- finals of the play-offs they failed with 1:2 and 2:2 against Cruz Azul.

But the benefits of Jaguares are extremely changeable. The 2004/05 season ended with the 16th place in the overall table, the play-offs again missed in both tournaments. Parallel to the Apertura Inter League was held for the first time; a tournament to determine the participants for the Copa Libertadores. Here, the Jaguares failed only in the decisive match with 3:5 on penalties to Chivas Guadalajara, which in turn could then advance to the semifinals of the South American Cup.

In the Clausura 2005/06 Jaguares could finally celebrate a group victory and move in for the second time in the play-offs. Despite a 3-2 away victory in Guadalajara they failed as two years before the quarter-finals - and once more at Chivas Guadalajara - because they had won their return match in Tuxtla Gutierrez 4-2.
