Pateadores Club History
Pateadores is a Spanish slang term that means "kickers".
The colors for the Pateadores Soccer Club have been blue and yellow since the inception of the club in 1987. The crest was adopted in 1989 and is outlined in yellow surrounding the blue and white crest. The black swan was added to the crest in 1995. This is to symbolize the club's unique style of play, which is aggressive, territorial, and graceful. The swan's segments represent the 4 original founding teams in the club; U19, U17, U16, and U15.
