Tercera División: 1994–1997

Universidad de Concepción participates in football as a member of the Tercera División, organized by the Asociación Nacional de Fútbol Amateur (ANFA). The team played its first match against Deportes Talcahuano at Estadio El Morro on 10 April 1994. The club's coach was former Universitario footballer Luis Vera Avendaño. With 22 points that season, the club finished fourth in the South-central Zone in Tercera División and was nearly promoted to the Primera B (Premier B).

In the next season, Universidad de Concepción failed to duplicate the results of the last season, finishing seventh in the South Zone. However, the club won the relegation play-offs.

During the 1996 season, with former footballer Mario Osbén as the coach, the club was runner-up in the Tercera División, after finishing second behind Santiago Morning in the quadrangular play-offs. Universidad de Concepción had a record of sixteen victories and six defeats in 34 games.

In 1997, Universidad de Concepción won the Tercera División. The club was promoted to Premier B, the first professional tournament and the first title for the club following a 2–1 victory over Unión La Calera on 8 December 1997.
