Paraguayan Primera División football team Club Olimpia has renamed its home stadium through an agreement with its main sponsor, telecommunications company Tigo.
The Asunción-based team is Paraguay’s most successful football club and has played at the Estadio Manuel Ferreira since 1964.
In a brief statement issued via its social media accounts yesterday (Tuesday), Olimpia said: “We communicate to the fans that after an agreement reached with the main sponsor of the institution, the stadium is officially renamed Tigo Manuel Ferreira as of this date.”
The stadium, which has a current capacity of 23,732, is named after former Olimpia president Manuel Ferreira Sosa, who led construction of the facility.
Olimpia is the reigning champion of the Primera División’s Apertura and Clausura campaigns. It is also the only Paraguayan club to win a continental title, including the Copa Libertadores on three occasions.
