Early history

Originally, Marbella was founded on June 6 2004 as UD Bocas del Toro and played in III.1 were they finished 4th in the league. Shortly after the end of the season the club was bought by onelove and renamed the team LA TRIBU on June 15th 2004, under onelove's management the club finished 7th in the league and were knocked out in the 1st round of the cup in Season 1 and on the 3rd round in Season 2. shortly after the cup's elimination the team was once again rebought, this time by albert10 who renamed the club Tigres Rojos FC on January 7 2005. Albert10 did not do any better than the previous owner, finishing Tigres Rojos in 8th place of the league and relegating them to the newly created VI division. He only lasted half a season more were the team got eliminated on the 1st round of the cup. During the next few months there were two changes in the management of the club, first andybuay bought the team and renamed it Seco Herrerano FC on March 6 2005, but on April 27 2005 the team once again changed management and Malta Vigor FC was born under the LonelyBear; Malta Vigor finished last in the IV.2 in season 3. Once again, at the end of the season the management relinquished its power on August 28 2005 to Darron who renamed the team Las Fichas F.C. whom finished 6th in the league and were knocked out in the 2nd round of the cup.

Shortly after, Womanizer26 took control and renamed the club los justicieros de persia on September 30 2005. Under his management the team was once again relegated but to the V division after finishing 7th in the IV.2. On the next season the club were knocked out in round1 of the cup and finished 6th in the V.219. On season 7 los justicieros de persia earn there first trophy by proclaiming themselves as champions of the V.219. Shortly after the championship, the management were forced, due to financial problems, to once again sell the team to current Marbella's owner pourcelot64 and on September 2nd 2006 Marbella Atletic Club was born.

Marbella Atletic Club

Jean-Sébastien Pourcelot took over the management and on September 2, 2006 founded what is today known as Marbella Atletic Club and based it in Panama City, specifically in Marbella of the Bella Vista district. The management has been successful in pulling this team from the grounds and making a name for itself in Panamá's football. They have charged with the philosophy of maintaining a young team composed by as many Panamanians possible and reinforced with top-quality foreign players. With this philosophy, the team has been successful in conquering the IV division title two times in a row and achieving an impressive run in the Copa del Istmo on season 16 after reaching the 7th round. Right now the team is in the III division of Panamanian football and is hoping that over the next few seasons it will manage to advance to the II division before making way to the first division (Liga Panameña de Fútbol).

Colors, badge and nicknames

Marbella AC crest in 2006

Marbella has played using the yellow and blue kit from its foundation. The yellow represents the sun and the blue color was chosen to represent the Panamanian flag. White is also used as an alternative color, usually for away matches.

Up to today Marbella has had two different badges. The first one was adopted in 2006 and it was a Brazilian-style badge with the club's color and an old-style football ball. In 2009 Marbella adopted a new badge in order to incorporate different elements that represent the team. The current badge is divided in two and has three main elements. The bottom half of the shield is a yellow background with blue and white diagonal stripes which represent the colors of the team. The upper half of the shield is a sun in a blue background, the sun was incorporated to the badge in representation of the Bella Vista district which symbol is a sun. And on the center of the badge there is an emblem of a European-style lion (from the owners region in France; Franche Comte), and this was incorporated because of the fans reference of the club as the creole lions.

During its history, Marbella has acquired a number of nicknames, los leones criollos (the creole lions) being the best-known. This nickname was given to the club by the supporters because of the players demonstration of pride and aggressiveness in every game. The club is also nicknamed los hijos del sol (the sons of the sun), because a lot of the players who played and still play in the team come from the Bella Vista district of Panama and the symbol for that district is a sun.
