David Arellano born in Santiago, Chile, 29 July 1902. His professional debut came at 17 years of age for Chilean football club Magallanes in 1919. In 1925 he along with other members parted from Magallanes football club to form a new club which came to be known in Chile as Colo Colo. Arellano is attributed with showcasing the bicycle kick or in Chile known
as the Chilena through footballing tours that were conducted in Europe.  Arellano played for the Chilean national team that participated in the 1924 and 1926 editions of Copa America. On 3 May 1927 in Valladolid, Spain while on tour with Colo Colo, David Arellano encountered peritonitis after being hit by an opposing player during a match. Shortly after the incident Arellano was brought to a nearby clinic where he would ultimately die. In his memory Colo Colo club shirts
carry a black line over the main emblem as does the Estadio Monumental David Arellano.*

Carlos Humberto Caszely Garrido born July 5, 1950 in Santiago, Chile. Former Chilean footballer of Hungarian origin, nicknamed 'Rey del metro cuadrado' (English: King of the square meter, Portuguese: O Rei do Metro Quadrado). Regarded as one of Chile's most important players, between 1969 and 1985, Caszely won 49 caps and scored 29 goals for the Chile national team, including participations in the 1974 and 1982 World Cups. Cazsely played for several football teams in his career, including Colo-Colo (1968-1973), Levante UD (1973 -1974), RCD Espanyol (1974-1978), finally returning to Colo-Colo (1974-1978). During the opening 1974 FIFA World Cup match against West Germany, Caszely was controversially given a red card by the match referee, becoming the first player to be sent off in this manner. Red and yellow cards had already been introduced in the past World Cup (1970). Today he works as a host for several sport related TV shows in Canal 13, a Chilean based TV station and plays football at amateur level for a team called 'Colo-Colo 1973', composed of former Colo-Colo players.*
