The Cerro y Casa Osos (universally written "CyC Osos") are a professional Gridiron football team based in the city of Cerro y Casa in the Ardisphere. The team was one of the founding members of the Archantan Gridiron Football League (AGFL) in 1934, and have always been a part of the North Continental Conference within that league. The team has won sevearl championships over its history, and is by far the most popular and profitable Gridiron team in the Ardisphere, contributing to the popularity of the sport there and serving as a point of civic pride.

The team plays in a purpose-built stadium along the Canal Sgambati in northwest Cerro y Casa, near the campus of the Universidad Autónoma Occidental which is just across the canal in the neighboring suburb of Filadelfia, DO (Estadio Agatías Sgambati map). To offset costs, the team shares the stadium with the university's athletics programs, and in an unusual arrangement, the highly-ranked public university is one of the consortium owners of the team, which also includes the city government and several private investors. Hence the team's tagline: "Fútbol a la parilla: investigación, desarrollo, y educando nuestros jóvenes" ("Gridiron football: research, development, and educating our youth").

The Osos' kit, showing the team colors and the stylized logo "CyCO": El oso sicótico ("the psychotic bear"), a play on the pronunciation often given to the acronym
