They are the nation's most successful team, having won the domestic league 26 times; their most recent title came in the 2008 Clausura tournament.
Municipal are the only Guatemalan club ever to win the CONCACAF Champions' Cup, a title they obtained in 1974. Municipal are considered to be the most popular club in Guatemala, and are traditional arch-rivals of club Comunicacioness, who are also located in the capital city.
