History edit

Club Deportivo 33 was founded on 25 February 1933 by the Civilian Police force.[1]

During the 1930s, Club Deportivo 33 competed in the central zone football tournament that was held by the Salvadoran Sports Commission. They won two national tournament finals in 1937 (3–1 vs. C.D. Alacranes) and in 1938 (10–3 vs. C.D. Maya). In 1939, C.D. 33 won the central zone in El Salvador. Since there was no official national tournament held that year, this central region zone title was considered a national title. On 30 August 1940, C.D. 33 renamed and rebranded themselves as Atlético España F.C.[2]

In 1940, España F.C. won the central zone tournament. Since there was no official national football tournament in El Salvador that year, this championship was considered as the national title.[2]

The club dissolved in 1941.[1]
