CD Universidad Católica History
A club known as Club Deportivo Universidad Católica competes at the professional level in the sport of football in Santiago, Chile. They have been playing football since 1937 and have always been a part of Chile’s highest level of competition, the Primera División. Since 1988, the club has made Estadio San Carlos de Apoquindo the location of all of its home contests. At the national level, the Universidad Católica team now sits in third place in terms of the number of league titles it has won.
The team has won a record 16 championships in the Primera División de Chile, as well as two titles in the Segunda División de Chile, four Copa Chile titles, four Supercopa Chile titles, a Copa Apertura title, and a Copa Repblica title. In total, the team has won 28 trophies in domestic football competition. The Universidad Católica has only taken home one prize from competing in international competitions, and that was the Copa Interamericana (1994).
Universidad Católica came in second place in the 1993 Copa Libertadores de América, the most important international competition held in South America. In the final game, Universidad Católica was defeated by So Paulo, the team that had been the reigning champion. In the history of the Copa Libertadores, Universidad Católica has reached the semifinals on four separate occasions (years 1962, 1966, 1969 and 1984).
Mario Lepe is the player that has participated in the most games with 639, but José Pedro Fuenzalida has won the most championships for the team. The club’s primary adversaries are Universidad de Chile and Colo-Colo, both of which participate in the Clásico Universitario tournament.
CD Universidad Católica Stadium
In Las Condes, Santiago de Chile’s metropolitan area, there is a football stadium called Estadio San Carlos de Apoquindo. In addition to being the owner of the stadium, Chile’s most successful soccer club, CD Universidad Católica, utilizes it almost exclusively for their home games. In 1988, construction began on the stadium, which can accommodate a total of 14,118 people.
The Santa Rosa de las Condes Stadium, a major sports complex that will be demolished and reconstructed in San Carlos, served as the location for all of the club’s sporting competitions in the past. Manuel Velez Samaniego, who was serving as the club’s president at the time, was the one who made the decision to open this sports complex.
As a direct result of the club’s ongoing financial struggles, the Independencia Stadium was demolished in the year 1945, and from that point on, games for the team were played in the Unión Espaola Stadium, which is located in Santa Laura. The idea for a new stadium was first conceived in 1980; construction began on September 4, 1988, and it was finally finished on September 4, 1988. In addition to the football stadium, it featured fields for rugby, athletics, and other sports. On November 1, 1992, the biggest football attendance recorded at San Carlos de Apoquindo to that point was 20,936 people who came to watch Universidad Católica and Cobreloa play to a scoreless tie.
