Tacuary Football Club is a Paraguayan football team, based in the neighborhood of Jara, Asunción. The club was founded in 1923. Despite being a small team that got promoted to the first division fairly recently (in 2002), Tacuary qualified to the prestigious Copa Libertadores tournament twice (in 2005 and 2007) and the Copa Sudamericana twice (in 2007 and 2012). In 2013 it will return to the Paraguayan Segunda División. In the 2014 season the club did not complete a good season and finished in the bottom of the table.

In the 2015 season, following the traumatic departure of Francisco Ocampo, the club found it difficult to adapt to their new situation and faced with the inability to play at home in the Roberto Bettega stadium, they had to act locally on other stages for much of the championship, until finally He could activate the Toribio Vargas stadium, but this has already happened in recent times. All this added up so that the club did not have a good campaign and on the 28th date, with two days left until the end of the championship, its descent into the First Division B (third division) was consummated.

In the 2016 season of the First Division B (third division), the club finished in 12th place out of 14 participants.

Over the years Tacuary's youth academy has produced players such as Ramón Cardozo, Hernán Pérez, Luis Páez, Ronald Huth and Brian Montenegro.


The club has traditionally played at the 3,000 capacity Toribio Vargas which is based in Jara neighbourhood. Between 2002 and 2014 however, the club played at the 7,000 capacity Roberto Bettega in the Zeballos Cué neighbourhood. The club had to sell the stadium to a port company to pay off debts and it was subsequently demolished. The club is now back playing in its traditional home.
