Sporting Cristal, the Peruvian football club, beat Huracán 1-0 last Thursday and qualified for the group stage of the Copa Libertadores. Joel Raffo, president of the club, spoke at a press conference following the win about the possibility of the club having its own stadium in the future. Raffo stated that the priority would always be to play at the National Stadium, which will undergo a reconditioning process, and that the club was taking steps to exhaust all instances to at least play the group stage in the national stadium. He also revealed that the club has had a vision of having its own stadium for some time but for now, they will solely focus on sports projects. Sporting Cristal plays at the Alberto Gallardo Stadium and their coach Tiago Nunes has a contract until the end of 2023 with an extension clause. Finally, the club’s sporting director, Guido Bravo, revealed that Alejandro Duarte, the goalkeeper, is in the final stages of recovery after suffering a right clavicle injury.
