El Chanchon (The Pig)Auriazul(Blue-Yellow)
|Founded||May 1, 1921|
|Ground||Estadio Feliciano Cáceres|
|Manager||Hernán Rodrigo López|
The club was founded in 1921 when three teams from the city of Luque (Marte Atlético, General Aquino and Vencedor) decided to merge and form one single club: Sportivo Luqueño. Only three years after its foundation, the team was already playing in the first division and fighting for the title. So far, Sportivo Luqueño has won three first division titles in the Paraguayan league, in 1951, 1953 and 2007.
For the 1999 Copa América, hosted by Paraguay, the club built a brand new stadium which seats 25,000, making it the third largest in Paraguay (after the Defensores del Chaco in Asunción and the Estadio Antonio Oddone Sarubbi in Ciudad del Este).
The fans of the club are very passionate and that can be seen when visiting the city of Luque, where basically everything is decorated by the club's colors (blue and yellow).
The official anthem of Club Sportivo Luqueño was created in the first decades of the club, where in a group of fanatical musicians and artists Luqueños, decided to make a club on the eve of the club's anniversary. On that occasion several music dedicated to the institution were revealed, in which I highlight the song presented by Luqueño Musician Juan Bautista Almirón. Thus causing the euphoria of all those present, who accompanied with palms and choirs.
Clothing and SponsorsEdit
From the beginning the design was always vertical blue and yellow stripes, and sometimes used the shirt or shirt as an alternative half blue and the other yellow in the 50s. But the club's traditional design was always used, and It was constituted by blue and yellow vertical stripes, which with time would be the representative colors, which identifies the city of Luque.
On the chest a shield with the initial C.S.L. and three golden stars included in the late 90s, represent the three clubs that merged for the creation of the club "Athletic Mars", "The Winner" and "Gral. Aquino", with blue shorts and blue or yellow socks .
The team is identified with the nickname of "Kuré Luque", because the city of Luque is famous for pigs (Kuré, which in the Guaraní means pig), and even the club owns a pig as a team mascot in the facilities. "KURÉ LUQUE" (Chancho Luqueño) due to an old anecdotic fact: the pigs were transported to Asunción in certain train carriages, which in football days were also used by fans and Sportivo Luqueño players. For this reason the fans of the opposite team said "There come the Kure Luque"
