The beyond democratic Copa Peru has had a list of unusual scenes over the years, as it is open to the participation of amateur teams, even offering a place in the local second division. And what caught our attention this year was a bizarre lawn where two teams that will participate in the tournament played a friendly preparatory game.

Bizarre lawn game goes viral before unusual World Cup in Peru

FC Cebollitas and Empresa Comunal de Macari dueled at the Bicentenario Municipal Stadium, in the district of Macari, near Juliaca, in a field far from ideal conditions for practicing the sport, according to information from the newspaper “El Comercio”. Videos of athletes trying to drive the ball through large bushes, holes and other surprises on the lawn went viral on social media.

The “carpet” hosted a flash tournament, according to the daily, which is customary in the preparation of amateur and semi-amateur teams for the Peru Cup. The tournament in the South American country is played throughout the national territory, with divisions by region, and is separated into district, provincial, departmental and national stages.

The tournament does not feature teams from Peru’s first two divisions, but it has great value for those who compete, as it grants two places for the country’s second division – regardless of the team’s origin. The champion and runner-up in the national phase gain access and are one step away from the elite of Peruvian football. Until 2022, the Copa Peru gave a direct place in the first division.
