Unión La Calera History

On January 26, 1954, Unión La Calera was founded as Club de Deportes La Calera following the consolidation of the city’s three sports teams—Condor, Calera Comercio, and Tifón—into a single entity. The next year, Deportes La Calera and Club de Deportes Melón came together to form Unión La Calera. Club de Deportes Melón was initially established as a result of the merger between Cemento Melón and Minas Navo.

After playing in the Segunda División de Chile for the previous six seasons, the squad was promoted to the Primera División de Chile in 1961. They remained in this division until 1974. They were placed in the highest division in 1985, but the following year they were placed in the lowest tier.

Then, after a brief stay in the promotion division, they moved through the second level and the third level before ascending again to the highest category in 2011 and again in 2018. (Primera B). The palmares of Unión La Calera includes five championships from the second tier, including the 1961 and 1984 Segunda División de Chile titles as well as the 2017 Primera B title.
