Juan Carlos Arce Justiniano (born 10 April 1985 in Santa Cruz de la Sierra) is a Bolivian professional footballer who plays for Club Bolívar.

Club career[edit]

Arce started his career with the Academia Tahuichi, Bolivia's famous youth academy. In 2003 he signed for first division club Oriente Petrolero. During 2006 he went on a loan to Portuguesa, but returned to Oriente soon after to complete the 2006 season. In January 2007 he was loaned to popular Brazilian club Corinthians. Despite having a good season with the Timão, Arce couldn't help the team avoid relegation, and with the arrival of a new manager he was removed from the squad. He played in 18 league games for Corinthians scoring two goals.[1] Arce also scored two more goals playing in Copa do Brasil.

His next destination was Qatar, where he played for Al-Arabi until mid-2008. Then, he joined Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma from the K-League, but left the club after only a few games. In January 2009, he returned to Bolivia for his third spell with Oriente. In July he was loaned to Sport Recife for a six-month period with an option to acquire his rights. Terek Grozny signed the Bolivian attacking midfielder from Oriente Petrolero on a three-year deal.[2] He was released by Terek after one season and returned to Oriente Petrolero.


He plays as a striker, more preferably in the winger position.

International career[edit]

Since his debut in 2004, Arce has capped in 23 games for Bolivia. He was a member of the squad that competed in Copa América 2007 where he scored a goal against Venezuela.[3] Arce also participated in Copa América 2011.
