Tacuary Football Club is a Paraguayan football team, based in the neighborhood of Barrio Jara, Asunción. The club was founded in 1923. Despite being a small team that got promoted to the first division fairly recently (in 2002), Tacuary qualified to the prestigious Copa Libertadores tournament twice (in 2005 and 2007) and the Copa Sudamericana in 2007. In 2013 it will return to the Paraguayan Segunda División. Tacuary's youth academy has produced players such as Ramón Cardozo, Hernán Pérez, Luis Páez, Ronald Huth and Brian Montenegro.
