Crest Love: #4 – Universitario

Universitario

Peru’s most successful club Universitario. The club, founded in 1924 by students of the National University of San Marcos, play their home games in the Estadio Monumental in Lima. Winners of 25 first division titles, they were the first Peruvian club to reach the Copa Libertadores final. They won their first title one year after forming.

The Universitario club crest was designed by Luis Malaga, one of the founders of the club. Their cream home kit came about after laundry workers turned their originally white jerseys cream by accident when rushing to get them ready for an upcoming match. The club kept the colours when they won the match thinking the new colours were a good luck charm.
