Why is the JC Sport Girls so important in the history of women’s soccer in Peru?

It was reported by Mafe Lovatón, a journalist from Deporte Total, in this note. There he told, for example, that in 2003 a group of soccer-loving friends founded JC Sport Girlshoping to have a safe space to practice the sport they loved so much. “We wanted to break with the prejudices that existed at that time. Before it was very difficult to practice this sport because you were the victim of ridicule ”, a few years ago Muela Rodríguez, sports manager of the team for El Comercio. And so the club grew little by little. What started as a space for weekends soon became something much more serious thanks to the great reception it received. JC Sport Girls was champion of the official women’s soccer championship in 2004 and 2006. From there they took the title of the metropolitan championship in 2010 and 2012. Finally, they have four national championship titles that he won in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2017. All this before the current format that we have seen in the last two years. And how to forget his participation in the 2018 Copa Libertadores representing the country.

Who are the big favorites for the title?

Alianza Lima is a clear favorite. For Camila Zapata, journalist and promoter of women’s soccer via DirecTV Sports, the 2023 tournament can be defined as follows: “Alianza Lima, looking for its three-time championship and for having strengthened itself in the technical command. And University because he is always a candidate because of his history. And I think that Sporting Cristal, Deportivo Municipal and Carlos A. Mannucci are going to fight. I expect a good participation from the provincial teams like Sporting Victoria and Defensores de Llucan. Grace Nole Alcántara, who covers for Infobae, says: “Alianza Lima is a team that has maintained its backbone. One of their strengths is the attack as Sandy Dorador and Adriana Lúcar have effectiveness on their feet. Sandy could not be in the Copa Libertadores due to injury, but he will undoubtedly be a key player in the 2023 edition. In addition, the ‘blue and whites’ have strengthened themselves in the best way, among them are the former Sporting Cristal: the midfielder Allison Azabache and the goalkeeper Fiorella Valverde. The intimate club gives them all the support and that motivates them to continue reaping titles. They have everything to continue making history”. By your side, Denise Paola Vera Cóndor, from Women’s Soccer for All, explains: “In the women’s category, Alianza Lima is expected to win the championship, but we should not be closed to one of the surprise provincial teams like last year, as Carlos A. Mannucci did”

The only thing left is for the tournament to start.
