Estadio Mansiche Panorama, Peru

Mansiche Stadium (Estadio Mansiche) is a multi-purpose stadium in Trujillo, Peru. It is used by many football clubs in Trujillo such as Primera División club Universidad César Vallejo and Carlos A. Mannucci. The stadium holds 20,000 people.

Mansiche Stadium was inaugurated on 12 October 1946, with a game between Club Social Deportivo Trujillo and Sport Tigre de Trujillo. In 1984, the northern stand was built to meet the requirements needed to be used in the Copa Libertadores. Sporting Cristal used this stadium for their home games. In 1993, four floodlight towers were installed so that games could be played at night. The first game to play with these lights was between Independiente Medellín and Carlos A. Mannucci.

This venue was used for the 2004 Copa América. Thus, the stadium underwent renovations. The northern, southern, and eastern stands were demolished and reconstructed in order to expand its spectator capacity to 24,000. A VIP area was installed in the western stand and the conference rooms were remodeled. In addition, an electronic scoreboard was installed. The following year, Peru hosted the FIFA U-17 World Championship. For this competition, artificial turf was installed. The stadium also has a running track for track and field sports.
