HistoryEdit

Pan de Azúcar participated a number of times in ANAPROF, achieving 2 fourth-place finishes in 1993 and 1994 and a third place in 1995 before relegating to Primera A (now Liga Nacional de Ascenso) in 1999. Pan de Azúcar had to wait until 2003 to promote to ANAPROF,[2] becoming the first team in Panamanian football history to promote after previously being relegated.[1] However the team were relegated once again in 2004.

In 2012–13, the team was relegated to amateur level known as Copa Rommel Fernandez.[3][4]

In March 2014, it was reported long-time club president Adalberto Agámez died. He had led the club during their most successful period in the 1990s, finishing twice in 4th place of the ANAPROF competition.[5] The club however responded on Twitter that the reports were false and that Agámez was still alive. Former player Juan Serrano however was killed in March 2014.[6][7]
