America de Cali

 América de Cali is a professional Colombian football team based in Cali, that currently plays in the Categoría Primera B. They play their home games at the Olímpico Pascual Guerrero stadium.

América de Cali has success at both domestic and international level. With thirteen national championships, they are the second most successful team in Colombia. Internationally, they were the runner-up of the Copa Libertadores for three consecutive years from 1985–1987, and in 1996. They lost twice with River Plate, once with Argentinos Juniors and once with Peñarol of Uruguay. They finally won an international trophy after winning the 1999 Copa Merconorte against local rivals Santa Fe.

Despite a lack of international accolades, in 1996 the IFFHS ranked América de Cali as the second best club side in the world, only beaten by Italian champions Juventus. In 2011, América became the most successful Colombian team that has ever been relegated to the local second division.

The club was officially founded in 1927, but traces it origins to the América Football Club founded in 1918. América has rivalries with a number of teams in Colombia, most notably with crosstown rivals Deportivo Cali. Matches between them are known as the "Clásico vallecaucano". Other rival clubs include Atlético Nacional and Millonarios FC.
