CONSOLIDATION IN THE FIRST DIVISION (1960-1970)

After promotion in 1960, the Rayados were reinforced with players such as Raul Chávez de la Rosa, Alonso Urdaniga and Claudio Lostaunau. However, the first two seasons were difficult and Monterrey managed to save the category in the last few days.

At the end of the 1961-1962 season, the board settled the debts it had been carrying and was able to invest in reinforcing the team. The most important element for the 1962-1963 season was the experienced Uruguayan coach Roberto Scarone.

 

Under Scarone’s technical direction, the Rayados experienced their first great era in the First Division.

In the 1962-1963 season they finished in fifth place. In the middle of that season, another nickname became popular by which our team would be known: La Pandilla.

In the 1963-1964 and 1964-1965 seasons they came close to the league title, finishing in third place.

In 1963, they set the record for the most consecutive wins in the Club's history, with 8, a record that still stands today; and in 1964 they achieved a runner-up position in the Cup. 

With these achievements, the fans began to grow and to identify themselves more and more with the Club.

 

 

In the 1966-1967 season, Brazilian striker Ubirajara Chagas “Bira” arrived, who would become the first great idol of the fans.

Magdaleno Cano also made his debut, who would consolidate himself in the First Team until he became one of the most emblematic players in the Club's history.

 

 

In the 1968-1969 season, Monterrey was runner-up in the Cup for the second time in its history.

The Club ended the decade being led by a highly experienced national player: Ignacio “Gallo” Jáuregui.

The left back had joined Rayados in 1963 and remained with the Club until his retirement as a soccer player in 1969, when he took over the technical direction of Monterrey.

During this decade, the Club consolidated its position in the First Division and laid the foundations for the future of the Institution.
