Founded in 1903, Club Guarani is a Paraguayan football team that plays from Asuncion. The club is based just outside the city, in the Dos Bocas neighbourhood. The second oldest club in the country, Guarani was originally known as Football Club Guarani. The team was named after a famous tribe, the Guarani. The original jersey colours were based on Penarol, a team from Uruguay where two of the founding members had played during their time.

The club has won numerous titles over the years, most notably so in the 1960s when they fielded a fabulous team that won three titles. Along with Olimpia, Guarani forms the only other team never to have played in the second division of the Paraguayan league.
