Machu Picchu Stars On The Shirt Of Cusco’s Cienciano

Cienciano 2012 Shirt Front - Machu Picchu

Peruvian Primera Division side Cienciano have unveiled their new shirt for 2012, which features an image of the World famous Incan site of Machu Picchu on its front, along with the inscription ‘Machu Picchu, Maravilla del Mundo’ (Machu Picchu, Wonder of the World).

The Cusco based side have continued the Incan theme on the back of the shirt, with an image of the Sun God circling the player number.

Cienciano are the only Peruvian team to have won an international trophy, triumphing over River Plate in the final of the 2003 Copa Sudamericana before going on to defeat River’s arch rivals Boca Juniors in the 2004 Recopa Sudamericana, played between the winners of the Sudamericana and the Copa Libertadores. In that year they wore a shirt bearing a similar design to their 2012 offering, but one that squeezed both Machu Picchu and the Sun God onto the front of the shirt.
