Contrary to what me and Beyond the Last Man think, Santiago Morning are NOT a Fleetwood Mac support band from 1970s California…

They’re a a Chilean professional football club based in Recoleta, Santiago.

Club de Deportes Santiago Morning (popularly known as Chaguito Morning or Morning), compete in the Chilean Primera División B, where they have won just one League Title in 100 years! Ideal hipster team material!

The original team, Santiago F.C., was founded in 1903 when Santiago established its own football association, thanks to the efforts of Santiago College’s students. The club was one of founders of the Chilean Primera División in 1933.

The club was renamed Santiago Morning in 1936, after the merger of Santiago F.C. and Morning Star.

Santiago Morning’s traditional rival is Magallanes, who they play in the ‘Metropolitan Derby’.
