Plaza Amador is a Panamanian football club based in Panama City, that currently plays in Liga Panameña de Fútbol. It is one of the oldest teams in Panama.


C.D Plaza Amador was founded in 1955 by Panamanian sports legend León Cocoliso Tejada (1927-1982). Under Tejada's leadership, the club relied heavily on developing and training players (rather than high-profile signings). After Tejada's's death, new directors Andrés Villa, Daniel Vàsquez and Enrique Cajar led the club back to the highest level of Panamanian football. They won the district title, the COPA JVC, and in 1988 claimed their first ever ANAPROF championship. Amador proceeded to win titles in 1990 and 1992. After a long drought, they claimed victory in Apertura 2002 (as well as that year's grand final), Clausura 2005 (as well as that year's grand final), and Clausura 2016.


Plaza Amador's old crest

The club's colors are the three colors of the Panamanian flag: red, white and blue. Plaza Amador was named after the square plaza located in the Amador neighborhood of El Chorrillo borough.
