Club Presidente Hayes is a Paraguayan association football club from Tacumbú, a section of Asunción, Paraguay. The club is also known colloquially by its nicknames The Yankees (Los Yanquis) and The Little Star (La Estrellita). They play regularly in Asuncion's Kiko Reyes Stadium (Estadio Kiko Reyes) as part of the Paraguayan Soccer League (Asociacion Paraguaya de Futbol). The club was founded in 1907 and participated in their first international tournament in the 1953 Copa Montevideo.[1] It is one of several entities in Paraguay that were named in honor of Rutherford B. Hayes, the 19th President of the United States. Hayes, who was required to arbitrate an Argentine-Paraguayan territorial dispute in the Gran Chaco after the War of the Triple Alliance, decided in favour of Paraguay. The club is the former home of Paraguayans Néstor Benítez, Teófilo Barrios, Tomás Guzmán, Julio Valentín González and José Ariel Núñez, and foreigners Riki Kitawaki,[2][3][4] Bryan Lopez,[5] and Victor Cristaldo[6]
