Cibao Fútbol Club is a Dominican professional football team based in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, founded in 2015. The team plays in the Liga Dominicana de Fútbol.


Cibao Futbol Club was founded on January 1, 2015[1], ahead of the inaugural season of the Liga Dominicana de Fútbol. The club built a new stadium, Estadio Cibao FC, that opened on March 8, 2015.

Cibao FC partnered with the Pontificia Universidad Católica Madre y Maestra and the ARMID Foundation to build the stadium and form a development academy. The Pontificia Universidad Católica Madre y Maestra contributed 26,187 square meters of land for the construction of the stadium. The ARMID-Foundation Real Madrid Foundation used these facilities to establish the first Real Madrid Foundation's Tecnification School in Latin America, which will be responsible for giving sports and academic training to children and adolescents.[citation needed]
