Coached by the Uruguayan national Carlos Maria Ravel, the team switched from their traditional blue and white colours to the state's yellow and red and changed their name to Galicia de Aragua.

At the end of the 2001–02 season, Deportivo Galicia was relegated to the Venezuelan Segunda Division. In January 2002 they became a separate entity Aragua F.C. when they moved to Estadio Olímpico Hermanos Ghersi Páez.
