Millonarios

Millonarios Fútbol Club is a Colombian football club based in Bogotá. As of 2012, Millonarios has won the Colombian league 14 times. They are also the third Colombian team to achieve a major international title, the Copa Merconorte in 2001. The team was initially created in 1937 by students from two schools in the city of Bogotá: "Colegio San Bartolomé" and "Instituto La Salle". Millonarios was formally founded on June 18, 1946, thanks to the efforts of Alfonso Senior Quevedo, Millonarios' first chairman. From the beginning of the Colombian Soccer Tournament, Millonarios won many domestic tournaments, the last one in 2012. At present the team is going through a process of administrative restructuring after the club plunged into a fiscal crisis that threatened its future. In December 16, 2012, the club finally achieved its 14th championship after a 24 year wait.

It is also one of only three teams that have played every first division tournament in the country, along with their traditional rivals Independiente Santa Fe and Atletico Nacional.
