This past Sunday, the Cienciano del Cusco faced Santos FC of Nazca, at the Inca Garcilaso stadium in the city of Cusco resulting in a 4-2 win and thus climbing to Primera after about 4 long years after its descent to 2nd division.
The entire city of Cusco made long lines to buy precious entrance tickets to see the favorite team play this final. Even in the Plaza Mayor of Cusco, a giant screen was installed for all those fans who could not buy their tickets and thus could view the meeting.
The Garcilaso stadium turned red and full. Each goal was a shout that was heard throughout the city. Finally, at the end of the meeting all the fans were satisfied and happy, they did not want to leave the stadium. The players had the support of all the people of Cusco and, at the end, they gave an Olympic tour as thanks to all the people who support this club in the good and bad times.
The Cienciano Club is well known since in 2003 and 2004 it was the winner of two very important international leagues and left its name among the best in the world. In 2003 they were winners of the Copa Sudamericana, beating in the final one of the favors “River Plate”.
In 2004 they also gave another great joy to the people of Cusco and that is that they won the South American Cup Winners winning in the final, this time one of the most favorite, “El Boca Junior”. In this way the Cusqueño Team was positioned as one of the best in the world and the best in Peru having obtained these great joys for the city of Cusco and Peru.
Finally, in 2015 after having a bad organizational campaign, it descended to the second division where it stayed for about 4 long years. Even so, all the people of Cusco always support their favorite team hoping that one day “The Father of America” will give us another great joy.
