Jaguares de Córdoba History
At a meeting on December 5, 2012, which was presided over by the current president of the team, Nelson Soto Duque, the mayor of Monteria, and the governor of Córdoba all participated in the formation of the team. An agreement was struck with the direction to move Sucre F.C. from Sincelejo to Monteroa in 2013 under the name Jaguares de Córdoba.
The initiative to reach this agreement was led by the city council of Monteroa and the government of Córdoba, and it received support from local businesses. The club, which was once known as Girardot and was established in 1995, is primarily owned by Soto Duque.
It has changed locations four times and has competed under the titles Deportes Palmira, Pac’fico, and Sucre before becoming Jaguares. The team made its debut in the Primera B on February 3, 2013, and won its first game against Real Cartagena by a score of 2–1. The following year, they earned a promotion to the Categora Primera A after winning the Torneo Postobón 2014-I by defeating América de Cali 5–1 on aggregate score in the final, and then they defeated 2014-II winners Deportes Quindo in the final of the year, winning 3–2
The 2017 campaign was the year in which the squad was able to achieve the highest level of success in the top division. As a result of the team’s fifth-place finish in the Torneo Apertura performance, they have earned a spot in the knockout stage for the very first time.
The team was eliminated by Atlético Nacional in the quarterfinals of the competition. The squad finished in eighth place in the Torneo Finalización and advanced to the knockout stage once more, where they were once again eliminated in the quarterfinals, this time at the hands of Santa Fe. The Jaguares finished the season in eighth place in the aggregate standings, which qualified them for the 2018 Copa Sudamericana. This was the first time the team participated in a foreign competition, and they were defeated by Boston River from Uruguay in the first round.
Jaguares de Córdoba Stadium
Estadio Jaraguay is a multi-use stadium in Montería, Colombia. At this time, the majority of the events that take place here include football. The stadium originally had a capacity of 8,000 people when it was constructed in 2012 for the Colombian National Games; however, this number was increased to 16,000 in 2017 when a new grandstand with an additional 4,000 seats was added.
This stadium serves as the home field for the Jaguares de Córdoba soccer team. Jaraguay was selected from a list of potential names submitted by residents of Monteria as part of a competition held on the website of the Municipality of Monteria in December 2015, leading to the renaming of the stadium with the new name. Cacique Jaraguay was a Zen leader who ruled over what is now the region of Monteria.
