C.D. Politécnico

Club Deportivo Politécnico is an Ecuadorian football club based in Quito. The club was founded on February 1, 1963, by students and professors from the National Polytechnic School after España ceded its franchise to the club. After several participations in the Serie A in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the club lost its division level in 1972; since then the team plays the Quito Amateur Championship organized by Asociacion de Futbol Amateur de Pichincha (AFAP) in order to regain its place in the second division of the Ecuadorian football league system. The most successful season in club history came in 1967 when it was the runner-up of the regional Campeonato Profesional Interandino.
