The club was founded on February 22, 1960, as Deportes Temuco and again on March 20, 1965, after a merger with Green Cross. Until 1984, the club was known as Green Cross – Temuco, and, in 2007, changed its name to Deportivo Temuco, only on that season.

In 2013, the club merged with Unión Temuco, but the name of Deportes Temuco was kept, along with the logo and traditional white and green colors, making it seem as Deportes Temuco absorbing Unión rather than a fusion. Thanks to the fusion though, Deportes Temuco left the Segunda División and returned to Primera B for season 2013–14, using Unión Temuco's place in that league.


Deportes Temuco's current stadium is the Estadio Municipal Germán Becker, a renovated 18,500 football stadium located at the "Pablo Neruda" street in Temuco, leased from Temuco City Municipality since 1965.

Deportes Temuco have also used other grounds during their history;

The Estadio Liceo de Hombres de Temuco, was Deportes Temuco's home from 1963 until the end of the 1964 season.

The club had also played their official home games at the Estadio Municipal de Gorbea & Estadio Municipal de Lautaro when the G. Becker Stadium was re-built, in 2008.

In 2011 due to the poor condition of the G. Becker Stadium, the club had look again for an alternative stadium to play their home matches; this time D. Temuco played at the Estadio Pueblo Nuevo de Temuco

In 2015 the G. Becker Stadium went on to repairs again, in this occasion, in order to receive the Copa America's games in perfect condition. This time the Estadio Municipal de Villarrica and the Estadio Municipal de Victoria, were the "albi-verdes" choice to play their home matches. They also played one Copa Chile 2015 home game at the Estadio Alberto Larraguibel de Angol.
