  1. The oldest team in Mexico is the Club de Futbol Pachuca, founded 1 November 1892 and not the Orizaba you comment funfado 6 years later and which does not exist today.

  2. Jorge Deza,in Spain just 1 Only dean of Spanish football, THE Recreativo de Huelva, and although you were you willing to take away the deanship, MIARMA,you are going to eat a big turd, Dean because there is only one and this in Huelva.

    1. And who he said otherwise, Miarma? I just spoke of Sevilla FC, to say he was born in 1890, and not in 1905. Nobody said that Recreativo not Dean. By the way, the hoax set up years ago by some geeks Arousa demonstrated that, humbug, so do not fear. No one will take the deanship, unless the Recre disappears, Clear. Check out my blog (via PC. no mobile) and you see my official and correct list of 59 Spain's oldest existing clubs and see that I am rigorous.

  3. Who did this do not know if it was reported, Shrewsbury Town es de 1886 and I bet something other older allowed.

  4. Hello friends , I inform you that the oldest team of Uruguay is the Albion Football Club , founded 1 June 1891 , three months before the CURCC , which then turns into club Peñarol. thanks and orders for more information .

  5. Estimates Sudamerika founded the oldest football club is only for Wanderers of Valparaiso Chile S others are clubs in other sports football ke then adopted as an additional branch!

    1. Juan Pablo: Rosario Central was born three years earlier (in 1889) as only football club. regards

  6. In the list of oldest teams in history, If you repeat country, falta el Girondins Bordeaux you (1881)

  7. Tottenham was founded in 1882. If you put Aston Villa and other England, bad your list of the nine oldest. Everton also missing. The “toffees” are from 1878. Your information is very bad, you'd have to do something else. Disastrous.

  8. In Spain, it has recently been discovered that Sevilla F.C. born in 1890 and not in 1905 as thought. On the other hand, should be placed only clubs from the corresponding year of foundation would practice football. For example, Gimnastic de Tarragona in Spain nation 1886 but he did not begin to play football until 1914. Thus, as for his footballing activity seniority in their year of origin 1914 and not 1886. Ditto for other cases.

  9. They're bold ha ha penadoy born in 1913 the oldest clubs in Uruguay are albion and national

    1. Hahaha you believe what you just said your president q. Truth hurts. Everyone knows q formerly called the current CURCC Penarol, It is the dean. Hen you envy kills kajjaja

  10. The C.U.R.C.C was always called Peñarol in popular jargon and official, so much so, that the posters of the Uruguayan Football Association 1900, They are the imprimía”C.U.R.C.C (Peñarol)”…in 1913 we chose only Penarol being clearly established that it is the continuation of the previous C.U.R.C.C to be called, in fact, Peñarol has used the design of that shirt in official matches, which has the same colors, yellow and black as today.

  11. you mentioned that “Gimnasia LP” is the 3-06-1887 and did not put it on the list should have been the 7th position and “Rosario Central” It is 1889, nor is the “Lima Cricket” Peru created in 1859. Incomplete your report.

  12. to start the club Orizaba of Mexico ceased to exist long ago, Liverpool is also older than the Santiago Wanderers, Liverpool is the 3 June 1892 and Santiago Wanderers 15 August 1892

  13. Espantosa your estadiatica misinformed Penarol in that year there was no CURC Antea publishing your homework something like.

    1. Forgive me the C.U.R.C.C.Peñarol, While writing, q is uninformed but your sos! It is the same picture from its origins, is on record that name, and for more specific information the F.I.F.A. it is thus on record since 28/9/1891.

  14. friend if you say that gymnastics is lp 1887 Do not say the oldest of America's Penarol 1891, no other pore eg Ac is quilmes 1887 and Rosario Central 1889
