History:

Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon, often known simply as Tigres, is a popular Mexican professional football Primera División.  The nickname "Tigres", which means "Tigers", originates from the University's sporting history. The first sports team from the UANL was an American Football team called "Cachorros" (or puppies/kittens). In 1947 they won a key match against the "Black Cats", an undefeated side, and a journalist from El Norte wrote that the team had played less like puppies and more like Tigers, and since then teams from the University have carried the nickname.  Tigres has won Primera División de México 2 times (1978 & 1982), Copa Mexico (1976 & 1996), Primera Division "A" (1996 & 1997), Segunda División club from Monterrey, Mexico, which plays in the (1974), Interliga (2005 & 2006) and Superliga in (2009).
