Foundation (Light and Power Company, Luz y Fuerza) (1899–1920)
Necaxa was founded August 21, 1923. Its early history began when Englishman William H. Frasser, an engineer and owner of the Light and Power Company (Compañia de Luz y Fuerza ) in the state of Puebla, and in which he decided to found a football team. Frasser, as a student was a devoted football player in the United Kingdom and was a strong advocate for the sport and admired literature. Frasser consolidates the teams of the Light and Power Company and the Street Car operators Compañia de Luz y Fuerza and Tranvías in a whole. Frasser economically supported the newly and merged team with company revenue and funds. In addition, the Light and Power Company offered steady employment to players in an era where half of the players were playing at an amateur level. However, the Mexican football federation did not allow teams to be named after private companies, the team was decided to change its name to Necaxa, after the river of the same name that was in close proximity to the electrical plant. Historians assert that the colors and Necaxa's crest came from following the arrival of the Cornish community in Mexico, the Cornish community flourished and stayed in Central Mexico until the Mexican Revolution in 1910. Although the Cornish community in Mexico broadly returned to Cornwall, they left a cultural legacy; Cornish pasties, Cornish mining museums,a Cornish Mexican Cultural Society and of course Football, are all part of the local heritage and tradition in and around Mineral del Monte. In 1923, it was also decided Necaxa team would field all players regardless of origin and race and nationality.
Necaxa organization and foundation was cemented on its history as "Football as a sport which is inclusive and open to all regardless of origin, race ,social status and nationality".
In that era, the team was called "Los Electricistas" (The Electricians). The team adopted the colors red and white as their primary team colors, earning them the nickname "Los roji-blancos". Also during this period, the oldest rivalry in Mexican football began to form, between Necaxa and Atlante.
On September 14, 1930, having already been a 2-time champion of the amateur Copa Eliminatoria, Necaxa inaugurated its stadium named Parque Necaxa, located on the banks of La Piedad River on land donated by the Frasser Family. The stadium had a maximum capacity for 15,000 fans, and was known for its memorable clock tower displaying the team's emblem.
Necaxa, in the early days of Mexican Football were members of the Mexican League Amateur Football Association Liga Mexicana de Fútbol Amateur Association, composed of Atlante, Club España, Germania FV, and seasoned and disciplined team Asturias F.C.. Necaxa won championships during the 1932-33, 1934–35, 1936–37, 1937-38. seasons.
The following season after the stadium's opening, iconic players such as Hilario López and Luis Pérez contributed to the team's success, leading Necaxa all the way to the League final against Atlante, losing 3-2.
But Necaxa would rebound the next season, smashing Atlante by a scandalous 9-0 score. The line-up Necaxa used on that day was the following:
During this decade, Necaxa became one of the most popular teams in Mexico. Under the direction of the Ernst Pauler, Necaxa, in one season of play (1935–36), the team dominated and won unforgettable titles. Titles ranging from Champion of Champions, Champion of the Liga Mayor De La Ciudad, National Champion of League, National Champion and Central American Champions.

Late 1930s: Once Hermanos
Following the aftermath and effects of the Mexican Revolution, The late 1930s represented Necaxa's most successful all Mexican team. The Once Hermanos or "Eleven Brothers" period was coined by many in that era due to that team's ability of working and playing as a team, great communication on the field and the ability to execute perfectly on the field during competition play. This team was composed of many talented individuals. This Necaxa team,by 1936, wins the Copa Mexico And in that same year, the emergence of a talented individual gained popularity within Necaxa's benches and competitive play.

As new ownership and new heirs of the team attempt to take the team in a new direction, stating its famous phrase "the competitive spirit of Club Necaxa is not reasonable with the Commercialization of Football". it would be half a decade were the Necaxa emblem and uniform would be represented on the field again.
Seven years later, Club Necaxa returns to competitive play under the conditions of the commercialization of the Mexican league. Under the new ownership of the Union of Electricians and Juan Jose Rivas Rojas, Club Necaxa plays their first game on September 25, 1950 in the old district of Oblatos, in a stadium called Parque Oblatos or "Oblatos Stadium" otherwise called the Municipal Stadium of Felipe Martinez Sandoval in Guadalajara, Mexico. This park inaugurated Necaxa's comeback to the Football which would lodge them in the heart of Guadalajara, counting on great facilities for the time which became the great grand stage of Jalisco, Mexico. Necaxa won many supporters in Jalisco at this time. In the fifties, Necaxa were tenants and played in the Federal District of Mexico City in present day Estadio Azul (1950–1955).
In the late sixties, Necaxa, becomes a handful of new tenants, plays football in Estadio Azteca in Mexico City.

The first goal of the game was scored by Honduran José Cardona. In this game Roberto Martínez o Caña Brava scored the first goal made by a Mexican. Estadio Azteca was the largest stadium in Latin America, and the fifth largest stadium in the world. The stadium is the first stadium to host two FIFA World Cup finals, in 1970 and 1986. It is also the home of the "Game of the Century" semi-final match between Italy and Germany at the 1970 FIFA World Cup. The Azteca stadium has also hosted the Summer Olympics, the Panamerican Games. It is also renownedly known throughout North America and South America as the home Home stadium for the Mexico national football team.
Throughout the 1950s Necaxa struggled financially to keep afloat In 1955, large debts obligate Necaxa to sell the majority of its star players. Miguel Ramierz Vazquez a new owner, contracts the services of the Uruguayan coach Donald Ross, who eventually took Guadalajara to a championship 1957, begins a road to stability, yet, not winning championships.
The electricians won the Title cup in 1960 and the following year, in the University Olympic stadium in Brazil, "the electricians" defeated Rey Pele and the talented club and team of the Santos of Brazil in a official match. This was an impressive feat in that era, "Morocho" Dante Juarez assisted in two victorious goals in Necaxa's win over the Santos de Brazil.
Through the early '60s, Necaxa struggles financially until it is sold and new ownership,Julio Orvañanos purchases the team and brings a championship in 1965–1966.

The new ownership takes the organization with its already rich history to a new directive in order to attract more fans. This Necaxa plays under the name of the Spanish Athletic Bulls or " Toros del Atlético Español ". The reason for the name change was due to their nationality and ideology in the world of business.

In 1988, Futbol Club Necaxa is purchased by Capitalist and monopoly Mexican telecommunications giant Grupo Televisa S.A C.V. The now late owner, Emilio Azcárraga Milmo (father of Emilio Azcárraga Jean), and several associates take a new directive in the acquisition of the team.

The following season Aníbal Ruiz was replaced with new coach, the Argentine ex-defender, Eduardo Luján Manera who contracted the services of the Chilean Ivo Basay, who was an instrumental part of the team in the following season. Under Manera, Necaxa didn’t qualify to the finals of the championship, yet, his team did show show a talented offensive line. However, unsatisfied, managements decisions of the team's play, the acquisition of new coach Roberto Marcos Saporitti, marked the beginning of the seriousness of a commitment toward competition excellence a period known to Necaxa fans as "La Epoca Necaxista abajo Capitalismo " or "the new era of Necaxa under Capitalism".
