Club Deportivo Vista Hermosa, commonly known as Vista Hermosa, is a professional Salvadoran football club based in San Francisco Gotera, Morazán, El Salvador. The club plays in the Primera Division, which is the top tier league in El Salvador.

History[edit]

The club was founded on 17 April 1999 by Jose Gilberto Flores. Shortly after its establishment, Sr. Flores struggled financially, thus resulting the welcome of Francisco Benitez. With Benitez' help, the club gain prominence and professionalism, helping the club grow along the way. Since their foundation and up until 2009, the club played its home games at the Estadio Luis Amílcar Moreno. In 2009, after the newly built Estadio Correcaminos was fully constructed, they moved in and since then have called the stadium home.

In 2005, the club achieved its first major honor by winning the Salvadoran Primera División, the 2005 Apertura championship.

Club Deportivo Vista Hermosa is one of the revelations of the new century. 2005 proved to be perhaps their most successful year so far, by winning both championships, the Segunda División which got them promoted for the very first time and the Primera division Apertura 2005 championship. They created history as well becoming the youngest team to win both treble since 1974. The correcaminos were actually created to help remove youth from the gangs and the violence and drugs associated with them.

Until this remarkable period not many had heard a mention of this club, however they were able to overcome the obstacle of the big three of the Segunda División, which at the time were Chalatenago, Dragón and Independiente Nacional 1906. For the Apertura 2005, which was their very first tournament in the top flight, they were able to finish second place on the table with a record of 10 wins, 7 losses, and one draw. After defeating Luis Ángel Firpo in the semi-finals of the post-season, they were up against Isidro Metapán in the final, who had the best defence statistics in the whole tournament. Both sides had never achieved winning the title. However in the end, the Correcaminos won thanks to Mario Deras, who scored twice in extra time. Club Deportivo Vista Hermosa's main rival is Fuerte San Francisco, due to its close proximity and their fierce clashes to qualify to the Primera División. However, Vista Hermosa recently has been more dominant over their crosstown rivals having stayed in the first division ever since they firstly got promoted back in 2005. Despite several good campaigns including making the semi finals on several occasions and producing several players into the national team including Salvador Coreas, Leonel Guevara, Osael Romero . they never were neevr able to reclaim a second title. During the 2011 season, several issues plagued the club, including lack of funds, three members of the owner consortuim accused of drug trafficking and having their new stadium confiscated, making the team play in various other stadium. With those problems the onfield and off field performance deteriorated until the relegated in 2012 from the primera division after seven seasons. Further Bad results and financial difficulty resulted in the club almost being relegated, however a deal was done with club Nueva Guadalupe to merge both club forming C.D. Guadalupano which would be based in San Miguel and making both clubs defunct [1].

Stadium[edit]

Club Deportivo Vista Hermosa play their home games at Estadio Correcaminos with a capacity of 12,000. They had previously played all their home games at the Estadio Luis Amílcar Moreno, which had a capacity of 2,000. On April 2008, it was announced that plans had been drawn up for a new football stadium with a capacity for 12,000. The newly built stadium of Estadio Correcaminos was debuted in a game against Juventud Independiente on 5 April 2009.
