Tipografía Nacional ("Tip Nac") is a football club based in Guatemala City, Guatemala.

It was one of the most traditional teams in the country in the 20th Century, and it remains the fourth-most successful club in the history of Guatemalan football in terms of national titles won.


Founded on 24 January 1924, Tipografía Nacional was the oldest team in the Liga Mayor / Liga Nacional, the nation's top division. The club was named after the national printing house, Tipografía Nacional.

Having entered the then Liga Capitalina in 1928, the team won three local titles between 1938 and 1940. Between 1937 and 1941, they had a streak of 51 matches scoring at least one goal.[1] The team also won three official championships between 1943 and 1953. After Municipal won the first Liga Mayor championship in 1942, Tipografía won back-to-back titles in the 1943 and 1944–45 tournaments, being undefeated during the former, collecting eight wins and two draws. Tipografía and Municipal engaged in the first known rivalry in the league, which faded after Comunicaciones and Municipal became the two most dominant clubs and each other's arch-rival.

Tipografía also finished as league runner-up once, and won one domestic cup. In 1981, they finished at the bottom of the table, being relegated to the "B" division (now Primera División). They earned promotion back to the Liga Mayor after two seasons, but suffered relegation again in the 1992–93 season; due in good part to lack of financial support,[2] the team continued descending to lower categories, until it was ultimately dissolved in 2002.[3]

Its resurgence came up in 2012 as a result of acquiring Club Cahabón's franchise for Q75,000. Tip-Nac is, as of early 2013, a member of the Guatemalan Second Football Division. [4]

Its uniform colours were red-and-white vertical striped shirt and blue shorts.
