DE C.V., commonly known as Chivas (Goats), or El Rebaño Sagrado (The Sacred Herd) is a Mexican association football team based in Guadalajara, Jalisco that competes in the Primera División de México, the highest football division in Mexico.

Foundation and the Amateur Era (1906-1943)

The team was founded by Edgar Everaert, who arrived in Mexico in 1904. Their kit was modeled on that of the founder's favorite team, the Belgian Club Brugge K.V., which consisted of vertical stripes and the color scheme was also modeled after Brugge's (which has since changed their team colors). Some historians assert that the colours come from the French Tricolore because some of the club's first players were French. The first team was formed with Mexican, Belgian, and French players (thus being named Union because of the camaraderie between these players) and mostly consisted of employees of the store Fábricas de Francia with Everaert as coach. A few Spanish and English also became members of the Unión Football Club. Upon returning from a trip across Europe, Everaert made the observation that European teams named after their respective town or city generated more support from fans in their communities. Thus, in 1908, with the approval of Everaert and the team's players, Club de Futbol Union would rename itself Club Deportivo Guadalajara to bring about a sense of pride within the city's population. Also in 1908, it would be decided that the team would only field Mexican-born players because of the eventual oppression Mexican nationals felt towards foreigners. Following the aftermath of the Mexican Revolution, amateur football tournaments throughout the country flourished and Guadalajara was always a protagonist. Between the years of 1906 and 1943 (the amateur era of Mexican football), Guadalajara would go on to win 13 amateur titles, the first one being in 1908. Also during this period, Guadalajara would go on to form, along with F.C. Atlas, the first major (and oldest) rivalry in Mexican football.

Professional Era, El Ya Merito (1943-1953)

In 1943 the Liga Mayor was founded after the merging of several regional leagues and the Professional Era began. Guadalajara struggled during the first years, with exception of the 1948-49 season where it ended up ranked third. This same year Guadalajara was given the name of "Chivas brinconas" (jumping goats) during a game against Tampico-Madero. The name was initially considered an insult, but later adopted as the team's nickname. During the 1951-52 and 1954-55 seasons, the team ended ranked short of first place. These results led to them being called "los ya merito. "The Almost There!"

El Campeonísimo (1955-1970)

During the 1956 season, players such as Salvador "Chava" Reyes, Jaime "El Tubo" Gomez, Isidoro Lopez, and Jose Villegas were part of what is considered one of the finest teams in Mexican football history, El Campeonisimo. Guadalajara won its first championship during this season due to a last minute goal scored by Salvador Reyes. Commanded by coaches like Donald Russ and Javier de la Torre in the following years, the team obtained seven league championships, two cups, three CONCACAF titles, and seven Champion of Champions titles. It was the only team in Mexico's football history to win four league championships in a row, during the 1958-59, 1959-60, 1960-61, and 1961-62 seasons. El Campeonisimo became internationally recognized and, in 1964, performed in matches in Europe playing against teams such FC Barcelona, Werder Bremen, Lille Olympique , resulting in two victories, four ties, and four losses for the team.

The Dark Era (1971-1983)

During the 1970s and early 1980s, Guadalajara reached the playoffs twice, with a fifth place finish in 1971-72 and a sixth place finish in 1975-76.

The Resurrection 1983-1991

During 1980-81 season, the team reached a third-place ranking. Prior to the 1981-82 season, a tragic road accident took the life of team member José Martínez.[3] The team finished the season in seventeenth place.

After that season, the team hired coach Alberto Guerra, who had been a player for Guadalajara during the mid 60's. During the 1982-83 season, Guadalajara finished seventh in the league table and qualified for the playoffs, where it would go on to eliminate Atlante FC in Quarterfinals and Club América in Semifinals. The team reached the Finals for the first time since the playoff format was introduced in the 70's, where it would go on to lose to Puebla F.C. in a penalty shootout[4]. Guadalajara would once again reach the Finals in 1983-84, only to lose to America by an aggregate score of 5-4.

Guadalajara's 17-year streak without a championship came to an end in the 1986-87 season. The team finished first in the league standings, qualified for the playoffs, and defeated CF Monterrey in the Quarterfinals and Puebla F.C. in the Semifinals. They won the ninth championship game against Cruz Azul with an aggregate score of 4-2. After the 1987-88 season, Guadalajara was eliminated in the Quarterfinals and 1988-89 season, where it was eliminated in the Semifinals. Coach Alberto Guerra left the team.

Prominent players for Guadalajara in the 1980s include Ricardo "Snoopy" Perez, Eduardo "Yayo" de la Torre, Fernando Quirarte, Javier "Zully" Ledesma, Demetrio Madero, and Benjamín Galindo.

"La Promotora" Era (1992-02)

By the end of the 1980s, Guadalajara began to experience financial troubles. Team directors decided to create a special financial sector that would be known as La Promotora Deportiva. The team would be "sold" for 10 years starting in 1992 to a petroleum executive named Salvador Martinez Garza, who would be in charge of the Promotora and of team operations[5]. Before Guadalajara began its new era under the Promotora, the team began the 1990s in average form, reaching the Semifinals in 90-91, reaching the Quarterfinals in 91-92, and finishing in thirteenth place in 92-93.

The new directors decided to bring back Guadalajara's champion coach in 1986-87 Alberto Guerra and purchase many players that would become icons for Guadalajara in the early '90s: Missael Espinoza, Alberto "Guameru" Garcia, and Alberto Coyote. The team also decided that it would rely on young talent from its basic training schools. Such talent included Paulo Cesar "Tilon" Chavez and Joel "Tiburon" Sanchez. At the beginning of the 93-94 season, the press and fans dubbed the new and improved team Las Superchivas[5]. However, despite expectations, the team was eliminated early on in the playoffs. The 94-95 season would bring about more change for the team. Guadalajara hired player Ramon Ramirez. Also at the start of the season, directors sold all television rights of the team to Mexican giant Televisa, a move that was heavily criticized by fans because of Televisa's ownership of Club América[5]. Guadalajara would end the 1993-1994 regular season as the leader in the league table, but was narrowly defeated by Club Necaxa in Semis. The 96-97 season saw the exit of coach Alberto Guerra, being replaced by the Dutchman Leo Beenhakker. The team failed to make the playoffs that season.

By 1996, the Primera División de México season format would be changed to two short seasons per year. The first of the seasons, Invierno 1996, saw Guadalajara bring in another coach, Brazilian Ricardo Ferretti. During Ferretti's first season, the team managed to reach third place in the league table, but would be eliminated by Club Necaxa in the Quarterfinals. Guadalajara won its 10th championship under Ferretti in the Verano 1997 season against Toros Neza with the aggregate score of 7-2. Guadalajara would once again reach the Finals in the Invierno 1998 season, only to once again lose to Necaxa. The fans criticized the sale of player Ramon Ramirez to Club América[5].

Jorge Vergara Era (2002-Present)

After its tenth year in charge of Guadalajara, La Promotora was still in debt and finally put up for sale. On October 31, 2002, the team was acquired by a Guadalajara native and self-made entrepreneur, Jorge Vergara.[6]. Vergara was the founder of a dietary supplement company named Omnilife. Vergara hired directors that would be in charge of handling business affairs. He also removed all sponsorship from Guadalajara's jersey; the jersey has since had limited sponsorship[7].

In order to establish funding for the team, Vergara sought to market the Chivas name and capitalize on it, placing the name on anything from its own magazine to toothbrushes and its own brand of cola[8].

For the Clausura 2003 season, Guadalajara hired Eduardo "Yayo" de la Torre, who had played for the team in the 1980s. The Apertura 2003 season would see poor results in the first half of the tournament, putting an end to "Yayo" de la Torre's tenure as coach. Coaching responsibilities would be temporarily assumed by Dutchman Hans Westerhof (who was in charge of the team's basic training school) and the team would barely qualify for a wild card showdown against Club Deportivo Toluca, but was subsequently eliminated. For the Apertura 2004, Guadalajara would display an offensive style of football and managed to place third in the league standings, qualifying for the playoffs. Players such as goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez, Ramon Morales, Omar Bravo, and newly acquired Adolfo Bautista, became instant fan favorites. They defeated Atlante FC in the Quarterfinals and Toluca in the Semifinals, but would lose in the Finals against Pumas UNAM in a penalty shootout. Nevertheless, the team had shown, since Vergara's arrival, that it was highly competitive, including in the Copa Libertadores 2005, where it defeated favorites Boca Juniors4-0 agg. to reach Semis. Under coach José Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre, who was also a player for Guadalajara in the 1980s, the team won its 11th championship. For the Apertura 2006 season, Chivas placed eighth in the league table and qualified for the knock-out round (the "Liguilla") by defeating Veracruz 2-1 in Veracruz and 4-0 in the Estadio Jalisco in a wild card series. Guadalajara advanced to the Quarterfinals where it defeated first place qualified Cruz Azul 2-0 in the first leg and tied 2-2 in the second leg (4-2 aggregate), moving on to the semi-finals against rivals Club América.

These wins allowed Chivas to advance to the final of the Primera Division against Toluca. The first match was played at Estadio Jalisco, in which Toluca and Chivas tied 1-1 with goals from Omar Bravo for Chivas and Bruno Marioni for Toluca. On December 10, 2006, Chivas played at Toluca's home stadium Estadio Nemesio Diez and won 2-1 (3-2 aggregate), thus becoming the Mexican League champions, holding 11 titles, the most titles of any team in the league. The first goal was scored by Francisco Javier Rodriguez, and the second was by Adolfo Bautista. Bautista dedicated his goal and his team's victory to his mother, who had died shortly before. This championship was goalkeeper Oswaldo Sánchez's first in his career. Photo Gallery After the Apertura 2006 championship the rteam has gone through a series of changes beginning with the departure of players like Oswaldo Sanchez, Adolfo Bautista, and Omar Bravo who went to play to Spain but returned later, however new faces like Jared Borgetti, Carlos Ochoa who these two left the team later and Sergio Amaury Ponce came to the team. Jose Manuel de la Torre was fired in the Apertura 2007 tournament and replaced by Efrain Flores who coached until being replaced first by Omar Arellano Riveron who only coached one league game and two Copa Libertadores games, and then being replaced by Francisco Ramirez who had an unsuccessful period as a team coach having the lowest percentage of effectiveness of all the coaches hired in the last seven years. After Ramirez poor results he was fired and replaced by Raul Arias, a former coach of Necaxa and San Luis. Then on November 4, 2009, Raul Arias was fired and replaced by Jose Luis Real.

Jose Luis Real lead to an explosive beginning of the Bicentario 2010, the team won 8 games in a row. Nevertheless, their winning streak was broken against a low table team, the Jaguars of Chiapas, losing by a score from 4 to 0 . Javier Hernandez a promising, yet young player scored 8 goals in a series of 5 games, achievment which lead him to the National Team.

Team crest

Once the team was renamed in 1908 as Club Guadalajara, they used initials, C.G., in the center of the jersey. After a few years of the team's existence, the first proper crest was designed, still using the team's initials. They were eventually placed around a circle. This design would be used in the team's limited edition Centennial jerseys in 2006.

Guadalajara's banner

Guadalajara's current crest was designed in 1923 and uses as its base, the crest of the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco. The crest was then complemented with a blue circle and the words Club Deportivo Guadalajara, five red stripes and six white stripes, eventual colors that were adopted by the team, and eleven stars representing each championship the team has won. The actual crest design is credited to brothers Everardo and Jose Espinosa, Angel Bolumar, and Antonio Villalvazo, all of whom were players or directors of the team during that time.[9]


El Super Clásico

  • Guadalajara vs. América
    • The first confrontation between what are considered the two most popular teams in Mexico ended with a victory for Guadalajara with a score of 1-0.The rivalry began to flourish after the second match when Club América defeated Chivas de Guadalajara with a score of 4-2. Although the huge defeat sparked embarrassment within Chivas, it was almost two decades before the rivalry became The Clásico. Their meetings, which have become known as El Súper Clásico, are played at least twice a year and signal a national derby.One of the very reasons why these two teams are arch rivals is because in 1983 and 1986 these two clubs brawled with each other, raising excitement among the fans, thus every time they play it is considered a match that everyone will remember.[10][11] To this day, El Súper Clásico continues to raise huge excitement in the whole country as well as in other parts of the world where there are fans of either team. The intensity of the game is lived so passionately that every time these two teams contest a game, regardless of what position they are on the charts or what level they show throughout the league, it is always considered the most important game of the season.

El Clásico Tapatío

  • Guadalajara vs. Atlas
    • El Clásico Tapatío is a derby that is played between two teams from the old and important city of Guadalajara, Club Deportivo Guadalajara and Club de Fútbol Atlas. They both share the same stadium Estadio Jalisco which causes controversies with the fans and the police. It is considered the oldest "Classic" of Mexican soccer since its inception in 1916, being a game that is lived with great passion on the part of supporters of both clubs.

Chivas USA are red, white, and blue, the same as Guadalajara.

Chivas Hefei

While Jorge Vergara Madrigal visited Hefei he came up with an idea to expand Guadalajara to China because of his liking to the country. The clubs games are held at Hefei Olympic Stadium, and will begin in the Chinese second division.

Reserve teams

Reserve teams have been an important part of the formation of new talents for the team and today they remain a high priority to the institution.

Former reserve team that played in the Primera División A de México that was the equivalent to the second division. It played from 1973 to 2009 until it was sold to the University of Guadalajara and became Leones Negros de la U de G. The reason that was sold was due to that Primera División teams would be unable to have reserve teams in the newly founded Liga de Ascenso which only teams that are certified to accend to Primera División would be able to compete.

Another of Jorge Vergaras plans was to create a team exclusively for women. Chivas Femenil is open to girls from 14 to 18 years of age, trying to recruit players to fill out the appropriate profile for the team and the "Institución Rojiblanca" (The Red and White Institution). The team currently plays in the Super Liga Femenil, the top level of women's football in Mexico.

Current Stadium

Inside view of the Estadio Jalisco.

From the 1930s to 1960 Guadalajara played in a small stadium known as "Parque Oblatos". Guadalajara currently shares its home stadium, Estadio Jalisco, with Atlas. Estadio Jalisco was opened on January 31, 1960. It was host for eight games in the 1970 FIFA World Cup, six for group stage matches, and two for quarter and semi-finals. The stadium was host for nine games in the 1986 FIFA World Cup, six of which were group stage matches, and one was a round of sixteen and the last two were quarter and semifinals.

Estadio Chivas

A new home stadium is under construction and will be tentatively named Estadio Chivas. This stadium will have the form of a volcano with a cloud on top. The idea of the design is to integrate the stadium with nature because of its proximity to a forest area. It will also be used for future conventions and as a Business JVC Center. The stadium seats will be colored red except for the loge seats which will be white. It will have a large main entrance and 18 exits. The minimum seating capacity will be 45,500, with a maximum of 54,500. An underground parking lot will be available, capable of holding up to 8,000 cars. The new stadium will also have a restaurant with a capacity of 200 and a view of the field during games. Ingenieros Civiles y Asociados is in charge of construction, having won the bidding at 81 million USD. The stadium is expected to be completed by first quarter 2010 however the opening date is estimated to be by April 2010.[12].
