Club Presidente Hayes is a Paraguayan football (soccer) club from Tacumbú, a section of Asunción, Paraguay. The club is also known colloquially by its nicknames The Yankees (Los Yanquis) and The Little Star (La Estrellita). They play regularly in Asuncion's Kiko Reyes Stadium (Estadio Kiko Reyes) as part of the Paraguayan Soccer League (Asociacion Paraguaya de Futbol). The club was founded in 1907 and participated in their first international tournament in the 1953 Copa Montevideo.[1] It is one of several entities in Paraguay that were named in honor of Rutherford B. Hayes, the 19th President of the United States of America. Hayes, as the arbitrator of peace talks after the War of the Triple Alliance, extended unanticipated leniency to Paraguay after its military defeat. The club is the former home of Paraguayans Néstor Benítez, Teófilo Barrios, Tomás Guzmán, Julio Valentín González and José Ariel Núñez, and foreigners Riki Kitawaki,[2][3][4] Bryan Lopez[5] and Victor Cristaldo.[6]
