Football arrived to Paraguay in the late 1800s. It was first introduced in Paraguay by Dutchman William Paats, who moved from the Netherlands to Asunción (the capital of Paraguay) in 1888. At first only practiced by the local “elite”, it soon swept all through Paraguay, spreading out to people of all classes. Today, it is by far the most popular sport in Paraguay, to the point that it is part of the nation’s culture.
The new administrative Headquarter facilities of the Paraguayan Football Association, located on the premises of the Paraguayan Olympic Committee, in the city of Luque, is the most modern construction in the region and an architectural showcase in the country. According to sources of La Nación Deportes, the project budget rose to more than $3,300,000.
CWS products were perfect for this massive undertaking, as they are fast to apply and waterproof concrete construction for the entire service life of the building, remaining reactive in the concrete, forever. Application time and labor costs are kept to a minimum, project deadlines are observed and life-time waterproofing is ensured.
The football of Paraguay is getting the respect it deserves!
