Arabe Unido victory enters annals as largest known club victory

Deportivo Arabe Unido’s 19:0 victory against FC Deportivo Jalapa not only was the largest-ever victory in the 41 years of the CONCACAF Champions Cup, but according to records of the International Federation of Football History and Statistics, it is the largest recorded in official international club competitions.
The previous mark was an 18:0 victory by Suwon Bluewings FC of Korea Republic against Saunders SC of Sri Lanka in last year’s Asian Cup Winners’ Cup. In Oceania, Lotoha’pai FC of Tonga twice was beaten by 16:0 margins in the Champions’ Cup, in 1999 by Central United FC (New Zealand) and 2001 by Wollongong City Wolves (Australia). The largest in Europe was a 14:0 victory by AFC Ajax of Netherlands against Luxembourg’s Red Boys Differdange in 1984, while in 1994, the African record was set with a 13:0 victory by Mbilinga of Gabon against Renaissance of Chad in the Cup Winners’ Cup.

Arabe Unido’s victory surpassed a record set just two nights earlier, when F.A.S defeated Jalapa 17:0. That scoreline surpassed the 13:0 victory scored by Caledonia AIA of Trinidad & Tobago against Chelsea FC (St. Vincent & Grenadines) in 1988. The previous mark in Central America was a 13:1 victory by CSD Municipal (Guatemala) against Diriangen FC of Nicaragua in 1977.

The Panamanian club, located in the port city of Colón at the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal, was welcomed with wild celebrations when they returned to Panama following the tournament.(www.footballconfederation.com)
