The Cibao Fútbol Club franchise continues to register in the number one box, when it comes to performing feats in professional football in the Dominican Republic.

Dominican professional soccer competitions have the support of FIFA and Concacaf.

Despite his youth, eight years old, the eleventh man from Ciba combines work with the feet of his players and with the heads of a group of leaders who founded the club in 2015.

Club Atlético Pantoja founded in 1999, creating a great rivalry with the eleventh orange team, was the opponent of the Cibaeños, also seeking its third crown in the LDF.

From Aitor Ramírez’s first goal to Dairin González’s most recent one, history is stained orange, in soccer in the Dominican Republic.


Deserves a special mention, Charles Herold Jr., a player who in the Cibao FC court has earned the name of the Prince, but who could well be the King.
