Club Necaxa en 1927


Necaxa was founded August 21, 1923. Its early history began when Englishman W.H. Frazer, an engineer and owner of the Compañia de Luz y Fuerza (Light and Power Company) decided to found a football team. Frazer, as a student was a devoted football player in the United Kingdommarker and was a strong advocate for the sport. He decided to merge the teams of the Compañia de Luz y Fuerza and Tranvías (The Streetcar Operators). Frazer economically supported the newly founded team with company revenue and funds. In addition, the Light and Power Company offered steady employment to players in an era where half of the players were playing at an amateur level. However, the Mexican football federation did not allow teams to be named after private companies, the team was decided to change its name to Necaxa, after the river of the same name that was in close proximity to the electrical plant.

In that era, the team was called “Los Electricistas” (The Electricians). The team adopted the colors red and white as their primary team colors, earning them the nickname "Los roji-blancos".

On September 14, 1930, having already been a 2-time champion of the amateur Copa Eliminatoria, Necaxa inaugurated its stadium named "Campo Necaxa" (Necaxa Field), located on the banks of La Piedad River on land donated by the Frazer Family. The stadium had a maximum capacity for 15,000 fans, and was known for its memorable clock tower displaying the team’s emblem.
