History[edit]

UTC was officially founded on 14 July 1964[1] by Oswaldo Silva Marín and Wílder Tejada Arribasplata, clerks at Universidad Técnica de Cajamarca,[1] known today as Universidad Nacional de Cajamarca (National University of Cajamarca),[2] with the aim of giving the university a place in the local soccer league.[1] Prior to that date, the club had been playing for three months in the local league alongside Club Juventud Victoria as one team, before the official foundation date.[1]

In 1970, UTC wins the local league of the District of Cajamarca.[1]

The club was 1981 Copa Perú champion, when it defeated Atlético Grau, Juventud La Palma, Deportivo Garcilaso, and Sportivo Huracán.

The club have played at the highest level of Peruvian football on twelve occasions, from 1982 Torneo Descentralizado until 1993 Torneo Descentralizado when was relegated.

In the 2011 Torneo Intermedio, the club was eliminated by Real Garcilaso in the Round of 16.

In the 2011 Copa Perú, the club classified to the National Stage, but was eliminated by Los Caimanes.

UTC won the 2012 Copa Perú under manager Rafael Castillo after defeating Alfonso Ugarte in the final. The club won 2–0 at home in Cajamarca and lost 3–2 in Puno, but won due to a better goal difference. With the win, they qualified for the 2013 Torneo Descentralizado, the top flight of Peruvian football; they finished sixth and classified for the second international tournament in their history, the 2014 Copa Sudamericana.
