Caracas FC, aka Caracas Futbol Club is a professional Venezuelan football team having their base in Caracas. Armed with 11 First Division titles, this team is the most successful team in the football history of Venezuela.
Nicknamed as Los Rojos del Avil or “Reds from Avila”, the team was founded on 5th June 1967. This team was founded by a group of friends that was led by Jorge Cubeddu and Jose Berascasa with the name of the team being Yamaha FC. Entering as an amateur team to the Football Federation of Miranda, the purpose of this club was to allow for Berascasa and his friends to enjoy their free time. As a result, he created one of the most amazing sports franchise in the history of Venezuela.
In 1984, the name of the club got changed to Caracas-Yahama FC after some successful seasons in the amateur league and the team got entrance to the Second Division. Their first season in the professional league was victory, where they gained promotion to the First Division.
Their first season in the First Division was quite unstable as they hardly survived any relegation. Post acceptable second season in 1986, when relegation was not that much of a threat, the team renamed their name to Caracas F.C.
The team won the Primera Division Venezolana eleven times. They won the Segunda Division Venezolana once in 1984 as Caracas- Yamaha. Moreover, this team was also the proud winner of Copa de Venezuela for five times, in 1988, 1994, 1995, 2000 and in 2009.
