Asociación Deportiva Chalatenango is a Salvadoran professional football club based in Chalatenango, El Salvador, currently playing in the top-tier Primera División de Fútbol de El Salvador.

The club was founded in 1950 as CD Alacranes, and reformed in 1975, as Club Deportivo Chalatenango.[4]

In 1975 the club relocated to their current Estadio José Gregorio Martínez stadium.[5][6]

They initially competed in the regional and national competition before eventually joining the full Salvadoran Second Division in 1960s, and subsequently enjoyed promotion to the top flight for the 1979 season.

Since its formation in 1950, the club has won three Segunda División Salvadoreño titles (1979, 1990, 2003) and one Tercera División Salvadoreño (2013 Clausura).[7][8][9]

Its emblem and mascot is a Scorpion.[10]

History[edit]

C.D. Alacranes[edit]

The club was founded in the early 1930s under the name of CD Alacranes, at a time where the giants of El Salvador soccer, Quequeisque of Santa Tecla, became defunct and were replaced by a new generation of clubs. The football club was formed by Don Jose Gregorio Martinez and a group of chalatecos whose purpose was to create a team that represented Chalatenango and the north of El Salvador. The team name, Alacranes, is Spanish for "Scorpions".

CD Alacranes acquired the license to participate and after many years of competition they demonstrated their quality in the inferior divisions by winning four championships. The team reached to the national finals in 1937, losing to CD 33 by a score of 3–1.[11] However its economic situation was in a terrible state putting its existence in danger. During that period, Colonel Oscar René Serrano accepted the leadership of the club, and with his experience, undertook the task of giving new life to the "Scorpions". The club ascended to the Salvadoran Second Division in the 1950s, changing their name from CD Alacranes to Club Deportivo Chalatenango.

Club Deportivo Chalatenango Success and insolvency (1979–2009)[edit]

In 1979, Club Deportivo Chalatenango obtained promotion to the Primera División de Fútbol Profesional and managed to stay there for ten years.

In 1990, CD Chalatenango were relegated to the Segunda División. They stayed in the Segunda División battling promotion for 13 years until they won promotion in 2003, but a year later they were relegated again.

However they were able to quickly return to the Primera División de Fútbol Professional by purchasing the spot of Coca-Cola for $250,000.[12]

In the 2008 Apertura, Chalatenango reached the final for the first time in the club's history under the direction of Carlos Melendez. After a 3–3 draw in normal time, they lost 4–3 on penalties, which allowed Isidro Metapán to become champions for the second time.

The team qualified for the 2009–10 CONCACAF Champions league knockout phase based on their record in apertura and clausura. On 26 June 2009, due to financial trouble, sold their spot in the Primera División de Fútbol Profesional to Municipal Limeño. Because the club failed to fill out the necessary paperwork to compete in the Second Division before the 7/23/09 deadline, CD Chalatenango did not compete during the 2009–10 season.

At the time, the club owed its former players $17,000 in unpaid salaries, and it owed CONCACAF $7,500 for pulling out of the CONCACAF Champions League[13]

Merger Years (2009–2013)[edit]

At the end of 2009, some of Chalatenango's former players created a new team, merging it with Nejapa FC to establish Alacranes Del Norte.

In 2010, the club filed the necessary paperwork to be able to compete in the Second Division.[14]

In 2012, The club merged with Vendaval to form Chalatenango-Vendaval and they played in the second division. However, after one season, in 2013, the partnership between Chalatenango and Vendaval ended and they split into two teams again, with Vendaval remaining in the Second Division while Chalatenango descending down a level to play in the third division.

Rebirth and another bankruptcy (2013–2017)[edit]

Chalatenango as a sole entity for the first time in five years, they were able to win promotion to the sgeunda division via promotion playoff and they continued several attempts to gain promotion to the first division, they were unsuccessful

However, on 18 June 2015 the team purchased a franchise license in the new expansion of the Primera Division and will able to compete in the Primera Division for the Apertura 2015 season.[15]

Financial troubles precipitated a succession of ownership changes and the club's eventual bankruptcy in June 2017 with total liabilities of €218 thousand dollars and months of unpaid salaries. The club was allowed to finish the season but finished bottom of the league in 12th place. They had License stripped and owner Francisco Perraza were suspended.

Another rebirth (2017–present)[edit]

The re-founded club, A.D. Chalatenango, was formed in July 2017, taking its name from the predecessor club and beating off competition from rival clubs to secure a place in the 2017–2018 season as the representative of Chalatenango.[16] Rigoberto Mejia was appointed as president and former coach Ricardo Serrano was chosen as head coach.

Stadium[edit]

Chalatenango plays its home games at Estadio José Gregorio Martínez in Chalatenango. The Estadio José Gregorio Martínez is a 15,000-seat soccer-specific stadium.

In 2018, INDES stated that Estadio José Gregorio Martínez will undergo renovations to allow them to satisfy the ability to host CONCACAF matches [2]

Rivalry[edit]

Chalatenango's current biggest rivalry was with fellow Chalatenango based team Atlético Comalapa, against whom they contest the derby chalateco.

Another of Chalatenango's rivalry was with fellow Chalatenango based but now defunct team Alacranes Del Norte, against whom they contest the derby chalateco. The rivalry stems from Alacranes Del Norte 's relocation from Nejapa to Chalatenango and using the same colours and stadium as Chalatenango
