Football in Peru
Peru have won the Copa América twice and were regular features at FIFA World Cup? finals in the 1970s and 1980s. Players such as Cubillas and Chumpitaz are still remembered fondly by the football world. Since those halcyon days however, the Peruvian national teams have struggled. Peru hope to recapture their glory days by improving the level of coaching education. The excellent facilities already in place provide impetus for new projects. The players certainly have the talent, but they will require the correct coaching in order to enjoy success as a team.
The second Goal project
Further to the existing technical centres and the one built as part of the first project, the Goal Bureau approved the construction of four other regional centres on 22 September 2004, each one equipped with a grass pitch, dressing rooms and an office. These facilities are intended primarily for youth football (boys and girls) and are part of a long-term project devised by the Peruvian association with a view to raising football standards on a wide scale. Maintenance costs will be borne by the relevant regional association.
