The club was founded on October 27, 1897 with the name Atlético Escuela Normal F.C.. In 1933 they became the first ever national champions of Chile. They won a hat trick of titles in the formative years of Chilean football (1933, 1934 and 1935) but their last major title came in 1938. Their latest participation in the first level was in 1986.

Deportes Magallanes, adopting their official name in 1904, is one of the oldest clubs in the country. Since the year 2000, after accepting the regulations of the chilean law 20019, the team has been managed by a limited sports company.[2] It is one of the eight founding clubs of the Nation Chilean Football League, the first football league established in the country, which also instituted the Premier Division (Primera Division) of Chile. In this league, Magallanes won their first championship in 1933. In addition, they were the first club to win three consecutive professional championships in Chile.

The club adopted white and sky blue as their official colors in 1908. These colors are used in their sportswear as well as their logo, which depicts a Caravel on the ocean. Since August 2015, Magallanes has practiced in their hometown of San Bernardo[3] in the city stadium, which seats 3,500 spectators. They often compete in the Metropolitan Classic against their longtime rival, Santiago Morning. In addition, they compete in a championship called de la Chilenidad, where they face off against another rival team, Colo-Colo.

Magallanes is ranked sixth for national titles in the Premier Division, tying Everton de Viña del Mar and Audax Italiano, with four each.[4] They have been the runner up behind Colo-Colo, Universidad de Chile, Universidad Católica, Cobreloa and Unión Española. They also have one title from the Third Division (Tercera Division),[5] one title from the Campeonato de Apertura, one from the Campeonato Relámpago and one from the Campeonato Absoluto. Despite their lack of titles in the last 70 years the club are still ranked as the seventh most successful team in the history of Chilean football.
