History

Cobreloa is a relatively new club, having been founded on January 7, 1977. The name Cobreloa comes from combining the Spanish word for copper (Cobre), and Loa, after the Loa River, the longest river in Chile, which is located near Calama and Chuquicamata, the world's largest open-pit mining copper mining.

The club was able to establish itself in Chile's top flight very quickly, earning promotion after its first season, where they have stayed ever since. Only four years after their foundation, Cobreloa reached the finals of the Copa Libertadores de América in 1981, losing in a third match to Brazilian club Clube de Regatas do Flamengo. Cobreloa reached the Copa Libertadores final the following year, losing to C.A. Peñarol of Uruguay. The club also reached the semi-final of the Copa Libertadores in 1987.

They have competed in the Copa Sudamericana once in 2002 when they were eliminated in the first round and twice in the Copa CONMEBOL: In 1995 they reached the quarter-finals and the following year were eliminated in the first round.Cobreloa have 8 Chilean Primera División titles and 1 Copa Chile title making them the most successful side outside Santiago, Chile in Chile.
