FC Juárez History
On June 7, 2015, the officials of Ascenso MX made the formal announcement that FC Juarez would be competing in Ascenso MX beginning with the Apertura 2015 season. This news was shared with the media. After having a very strong start to the season, the team finished the 2015 campaign in second place, and on December 5, 2015, FC Juarez won its first Ascenso MX title by defeating Atlante 3-1 on aggregate. This victory gave the team the opportunity to compete in the promotional final of the Ascenso MX. They were unsuccessful in their attempt to qualify for the Clausura 2016 liguilla and were defeated by Necaxa in the promotional final. The following year, Juárez was not able to earn a spot in the Liga Universitaria.
The final of the Clausura 2017 season was played between Juarez and Lobos BUAP. Juarez was defeated by Lobos BUAP with an aggregate score of 4–2. The league confirmed prior to the start of the 2017–18 Ascenso MX season that Juarez would be one of the six Ascenso MX teams that would be eligible for promotion to Liga MX the season after that. In the Apertura 2017 season, Juarez were defeated on penalties by Alebrijes de Oaxaca in the final. This was Juarez’s second consecutive loss in the final. After the original bi-national group purchased the struggling franchise, Juarez was promoted to the Liga MX on June 11, 2019, replacing Lobos BUAP. With this promotion, Ciudad Juárez once again has access to the highest level of football.
The home field for FC Juarez is the Estadio Olmpico Benito Juarez in Ciudad Juarez, which is located in the state of Chihuahua. The Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez is the proprietor of the stadium, which has a maximum capacity of 19,765 spectators.
In October of 1980, the stadium was opened with a match between the Mexico national team and Atlético de Madrid serving as the opening game.
FC Juarez was established on May 29, 2015, by a group of businessmen led by Alejandra de la Vega. This event marked the first time that professional football had been played in the border region since 2012. She holds the majority of shares in Bravos de Ciudad Juarez, which is the company that purchased the Lobos BUAP franchise.
