History

edit

The club was formed on 14 April 1962.[2] Guabirá won its first trophy with the 1975 league title.[3] The championship also gave the club a spot in their first continental participation: the 1976 Copa Libertadores, where it finished last in its group. The next year, in 1977, the club was one of the 16 clubs that founded the Bolivian professional league. In 1995 the club finished runner-up, which granted it a spot in the 1996 Copa Libertadores. The club finished last in the group again, although it got a victory over fellow Bolivian side Club San José.

The club almost won the Copa Bolivia in 2000, but lost to The Strongest in the final.

The club earned its first Copa Sudamericana participation and made the return to continental tournaments after 22 years with its participation in the 2018 Copa Sudamericana, where the club was eliminated in the first round on away goals to LDU Quito. They earned this right because they finished 6th in the aggregate table for the 2016–17 season. Guabirá participated again in the 2019 and 2021 editions. In 2019 they were eliminated in the first round to an Ecuadorian team again, this time to Macará, while in 2021 they defeated fellow Bolivian side Nacional Potosí to advance to the group stage, in which they lost all of their matches.
