This Thursday, July 28, Sport Boys del Callao celebrates its 95th anniversary, during which time it became one of the most important teams in Peru. The special date was celebrated by the “Rosados” and the institution held a celebration, which was broadcast on Facebook and YouTube.
The appointment was scheduled for 11:15 p.m. m. on the night of July 27 and there was a recount of stories, anecdotes and experiences throughout the history of the squad. Also, due to the birthday, the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF) and Conmebol did not hesitate to send their greetings to the club, which has suffered some ups and downs in recent times.
“On a day like today, in 1927, Sport Boys was founded. We salute all the pink fans on this new institutional anniversary”, highlighted the highest soccer entity in Peru.

In the same way, the Callao team shared an emotional video on YouTube, in which they recalled the return to the first division in 2009. The clip features Crifford Seminario, Waldir Sáenz and Carlos Elías, who recalled how the back to the top category.
However, Sport Boys was not very regular at that time and in 2013 they relegated again, managing to return only in 2018. Since then, the institution has remained in League 1 , trying to shake off economic problems, and in 2021 they had a fantastic campaign, which culminated in qualifying for the 2022 Copa Sudamericana (they had not entered an international tournament since 2001).
Despite this, the poor performance of some managers, both in money management and in sports, and the payment of bankruptcy debt still hit the club. Precisely, at the gates of the anniversary, Sunat made a decision regarding the control of the entity, which the fans hope will be positive for the future: Alfredo Antonio Matayoshi Hokama became the provisional administrator.
