The Orión F.C. is a football club in Desamparados, Costa Rica.[1] It was founded in 1926 and currently plays in Costa Rica's First Division.


The Orion F.C. football club was founded on June 26, 1926. Playing in First Division 36 tournaments, the club secured two Costa Rican national championships and six runners-up, ranking sixth in Costa Rican football history. In 1931 the Orion F. C. was national runner-up after losing in the finals against C.S. Herediano. In 1938 Orion F. C. took its first championship in a final match against Sociedad Gimnástica, and its second against C. S. Herediano in 1944 ending the season undefeated. They received more runner-up finishes in 1940 (C.S. Cartaginés), 1945 (L.D. Alajuelense), 1949 (L.D. Alajuelense), 1951 (C.S. Herediano) and the last consolation trophy in 1964 before the C.D. Saprissa.[2] Orion F.C. dropped to Costa Rica's Second Division in 1978. In 1998, following twenty years of fruitless efforts and a disappointing match against Siquirres La France (3-3) the team descended to the Third Division and its president Manolo Gómez Mora decided to lower the flag of the historic football and retire Orion F.C. as a football club.

The club resurfaced in 2006-2007 through efforts initiated by its current president, Juan Luis Hernandez. It was given the opportunity to compete in the Promotion League (Second Division) after acquiring the franchise AD Puntarenas.

Over their 80 year history the club has allied with Orion HS, Orion, Peripherals, Orion-Tibas, Orion-Carthaginian among others. The team began the 2009-2010 season playing in the Estadio Municipal in the city of Orotina.

In January 2010 relocated its head office to the Estadio Lito Monge in Curridabat.

Since Campeonato de Invierno 2011, Orion F.C. played in Primera División, after 43 years of absence.
