Happy 97th anniversary Universitario!
by J.P. Devetori
My love for Universitario has been passed on to me from my grandfather. The more I learn about this club, the closer I am. The best club with the most titles, greatest players, biggest stadium and the best fans. The logo is the most unique. There are many “U” teams in Latin America but none is as legendary and recognized as Universitario de Deportes.
In December 2019, I was at the Estadio Monumental hoping to tour the stadium but was unlucky since no one was there. All I could do is look at the majestic stadium from outside the gates. Seeing the old statue of Lolo Fernandez, the greatest player ever to don the Crema shirt. Some day when things get better in the world, I will be inside the Estadio Monumental watching the Crema play in person and cheer alongside the greatest fans in the world.
My goal for this blog site is to connect fans of the U from all over the world, specifically North America. To keep fans of the Crema alert on team news, match previews and recaps. As the year goes by, there will be more activities to the site such as podcast to keep fans of the Crema connected to the club.
Year 97 of Universitario de Deportes is going to be memorable and I’m excited to help connect U fans from the U.S. and all over the world.
