Juan Aurich de Chiclayo, commonly known as Juan Aurich, was a Peruvian football club based in the city of Chiclayo. They were founded in 1996 and folded in 2004, and were credited with winning the Copa Peru in 1997.

The club is the successor to other clubs that played under the name Juan Aurich and currently Juan Aurich de La Victoria plays in the top division and achieved a national title in 2011.



The football club was founded on 3 September 1922 as Club Deportivo Juan Aurich. The club played two spells in the first division: the first between 1967 and 1983 and the second between 1988 and 1991. Following their relegation at the end of the 1991 Torneo Descentralizado and the dissolution of the club, a new football club was formed, albeit a merge, between the remaining Juan Aurich club and Deportivo Cañaña. Between 1994 and 1996 the merged football club Aurich–Cañaña had a brief spell in the Primera División after they achieved promotion through the 1993 Copa Perú.

Own history[edit]

A new reincarnation of Juan Aurich was formed as Juan Aurich de Chiclayo shortly after Aurich–Cañaña was relegated. The new Juan Aurich achieved promotion through the 1997 Copa Perú and played from 1998 until 2002 when they were relegated.

Finally, the third Juan Aurich football club achieved promotion in 1997 by winning the 1997 Copa Perú. This spell in the first division lasted from 1998 to 2002.[1]

Due to the financial strain created by playing in the top flight, Juan Aurich de Chiclayo also folded as its predecessors.[1]


In November 2004, Juan Merino Aurich took control of the waning football club Mariscal Nieto of the La Victoria district of the Chiclayo Province. Merino converted the club to Juan Aurich de La Victoria and founded the current incarnation of Juan Aurich on 28 January 2005.[1]
