Wikipedia - Atlas F.C.

Atlas Fútbol Club (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈatlas ˈfuðβol ˈkluβ]) is a Mexican football club. It plays home matches at the Estadio Jalisco, Guadalajara, Jalisco.

History

Club Atlas was founded in a bar in Guadalajara, Mexico, where a few friends recalled their football experience at the Ampleforth College where they had spent the last few years. Alfonso and Juan José "Lico" Cortina, Pedro "Perico" and Carlos Fernández del Valle, the three Orendain brothers and Federico Collignon (who had studied in Berlin) finally decided in 1916 to set up a football team called "Club Atlas" and founded it in Guadalajara.

The technical ability that the "Atlistas" employed – triangular passing and skillful dribbling to avoid opponents' tackles – was impressive and they quickly joined the elite in Mexican football. As a result, Atlas and Chivas, a fellow Guadalajara team, have a long history in the first division and the game between them is called the 'Clásico Tapatío'.

Club Atlas had a golden age in the late 1990s under the management of Ricardo La Volpe, with promising players such as Rafael Márquez, Daniel Osorno, Juan Pablo Rodriguez, Pavel Pardo, Mario Méndez, Omar Briceño, Miguel Zepeda, and Cesar Andrade, but even though they had a team with enormous talent and reached the Verano 1999 final, they couldn't conquer the title and lost against Deportivo Toluca F.C. in a match defined by penalties.

Atlas had not won a championship since 1951, owning a 70-year title drought until 12 December 2021 where they defeated Club León at the Estadio Jalisco via penalties.

On 5 March 2022, during a match between Atlas and Querétaro at Querétaro's stadium, a riot broke out between fans attending the match. Video posted on social media showed groups of men beating, kicking, dragging and stripping victims. According to the Querétaro state's civil protection agency, at least 22 men were injured. The Liga MX sanctioned Atlas by banning Atlas-affiliated barras from attending home matches for up to six months in response to the riots.

Atlas won its 3rd championship on May 29, 2022 against Pachuca. Atlas defeat Pachuca in Jalisco Stadium 2-0 in leg 1 on May 26, 2022, and held on to victory in a 1-2 battle on the road, becoming only the third team in league history to win back to back titles.
