Pumas de UNAM Academy

There are historical teams in Mexican soccer, but like Pumas, none. Our University, our history and tradition, our colors and our quarry endorse what has been said. But there is something even stronger that makes us unique: our capacity for training.

It is that DNA that has made us shine that we are willing to recover and we are achieving. Because in the club it is written that this is the origin of our greatness. Providing the first team with fully prepared footballers is one of our objectives; However, the goal of our academy is not only that, it is also to once again be the hotbed of Mexican soccer and of course the National Team.

As of this writing, there are currently no tryouts listed on their website. Please come back at a later date or check back at their official website by clicking here.

Pumas de UNAM Soccer Schools

The affiliate schools of the University Club are a comprehensive sports project, which supports the physical training of children and adolescents through soccer, with the sports methodology of the Pumas as the main tool.

The branch schools promote the practice of soccer in a healthy, controlled and familiar environment. They are designed to stimulate and teach this sport in a formative way, without distinction of abilities, by promoting the values ​​of UNAM. Similarly, the official school system is a method of detecting sports talents, which can be part of the basic forces of the Pumas.

Pumas de UNAM CANTERA NORTE (FES IZTACALA)

On May 19, 2015, a cooperation agreement was created for the opening of an academy structure, between the Iztacala Faculty of Higher Studies (FESI) and the University Club PUMAS.

Thus, it seeks to promote the recruitment of soccer talent and that young people from nearby communities can be observed and prepared with a view to being part of the academy of PUMAS.

With this agreement, the National University Club opened its horizons of soccer talent in the north of the city. This area encompasses a wide niche, in which young people from the municipalities of Naucalpan, Tlalnepantla and Cuautitlán Izcalli, among others, can be received.

Thus, the sub-16, 15, 14 and 13 year old categories were created in parallel to those that already exist in the Cantera, which can participate in basic strength tournaments, as long as the University Club considers it appropriate.

Stadium

Estadio Olímpico Universitario is a multi-purpose stadium located inside Ciudad Universitaria in Mexico City. It was constructed in 1952, and at the time of its completion, it had the title of being Mexico’s largest stadium. This stadium can accommodate up to 72,000 people at once. The first significant gathering to take place in the stadium was the Pan American Games in 1955. The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the National Polytechnic Institute (IPN) were the two main Mexican public institutions during that time period, and this stadium was mostly utilized for college American football matches between the two schools.

Beginning in the late 1950s, it was utilized for games of football, as well as some games of American football and athletics. Frank Lloyd Wright, an influential American architect, referred to it as “the most important structure in the modern America.”

The stadium played host to four games during the 1986 FIFA World Cup, however the championship match was held in Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca because it was a larger venue. PUMAS and the American football team Pumas Dorados de la UNAM both call this stadium their home field at the present time. This athletic complex is a component of Ciudad Universitaria, also known as “University City,” which serves as the primary campus of the UNAM.

Crest

Since its inception in the middle of the 1900s, the crest that represents the PUMAS UNAM soccer team has undergone four different iterations of redesign. By using a blue and gold palette throughout its history, PUMAS have managed to keep their colors looking quite consistent.

In 1973, Alejandro Cadaval Torres, who was serving as the institution’s Sports Director at the time, commissioned Manuel Rodrguez ‘El Pajarito,’ a Mexican graphic artist, to create a new badge for the university. Mr. Rodrguez would get his creative juices flowing by making regular trips to the Chapultepec Zoo to draw real pumas. It took him three months and far over 800 designs before he arrived at the design that is currently being used. On April 20, 1974, the phenomenally innovative new design was shown out.

Ownership

Although the University owns Pumas in its entirety, the organization is overseen by a board of trustees. In contrast to the vast majority of other clubs in Mexico, which receive support from private investment or an owner, the University Club’s statutes establish that a Board of Trustees made up of people who are close to the club and the student community have the responsibility of ensuring that the organization complies satisfactorily with its ends. This is in contrast to the fact that the vast majority of other clubs in Mexico receive support from private investment or an owner.

This Board of Trustees has a term of two years, during which they are responsible for planning, executing, and deciding for the benefit of the institution’s partners. They do this through a general assembly that is held periodically, during which they are informed with the luxury of details regarding the financial and sporting activities of the entity. This Board of Trustees is in charge of planning, executing, and deciding for the benefit of the institution’s partners. The revenue from the club is given to the Board of Trustees, who are responsible for paying all of the team’s expenses. If there is any money remaining after that, the University will also get a profit from the club.
