Estadio Alejandro Villanueva Wikipedia
On April 11, 1965, it was announced at a press conference by Walter Lavalleja that a stadium was to be built in Lima for the club Alianza Lima. They were able to do this project because the president at that time, Manuel Odria donated a piece of land for the construction of this stadium. On May 30, 1969, the first phase of the project began.
The stadium was inaugurated with the "Señor de Los Milagros" tournament featuring Alianza Lima, Universitario de Deportes, Nacional of Uruguay, and Independiente of Argentina. The stadium opened on December 27, 1974, to 55,000 spectators with Alianza Lima drawing 2–2 with Nacional.
The stadium carried the club name since its opening. However, in 2000, with Alianza Lima's centennial anniversary approaching, the club rechristened the stadium name to Estadio Alejandro Villanueva in honor one of one their most important players.Elton John- November 9, 1995 - Made in England Tour
