In January 2009 Ávila was loaned out to newly promoted club Sport Huancayo for the start of the 2009 Torneo Descentralizado season in order to gain more first team experience.[2] He made his league debut for Sport Huancayo on 15 February 2009 away to Alianza Lima for Round 1 of the season. Manager José Ramírez Cubas allowed him to start the match from the beginning and was later substituted in the 67th minute, as the match finished 2–1 to Alianza Lima.[3] Five games later, Ávila scored his first professional goal on 22 March 2009 in a league match at home against Cienciano del Cuzco. His goal was scored in the 74th minute and helped secure the 2–0 win for his team.[4]

Before the start of the 2010 season there were rumors linking Irvin back to his parent club, but instead he chose to stay with Sport Huancayo as he was now a regular starter for the Rojo Matador.[5]

Ávila played one of his best matches of the 2011 Torneo Descentralizado season in round 28 away to league leaders, at the time, Alianza Lima. He scored in the 59th minute the second goal in the 2–0 win to Sport Huancayo in Matute.[6]

International career[edit]
