The name of the team refers to the mexican grizzly bear, today extinct. As a curious fact, Toluca already had two sports teams with the name of Osos (Spanish for "bears"): a baseball team, Osos Negros de Toluca (Toluca Black Bears) and a football team, Osos Grises (Gray Bears); both teams are now defunct.
In their debut season, the team won only two games, finishing the regular season with a 2–6 record and as the last overall classified team.
In July 2020, head coach Horacio García left the team.
The Osos play their home games at the Universidad Siglo XXI. The university's field was conditioned with stands so it could seat 4,000 people.
