The team obtained its first national title in 2007.

The name comes from the Universidad de San Martín de Porres, a university in Lima.

History

In the 2004 Apertura, Universidad San Martin did poorly. They only accumulated 10 points and were positioned last on the table. However, in the Clausura, the club mananged to win 47 points, and reached second place. In total, San Martin was placed twelfth with 57 points. On the relegation table they placed eleventh, remaining in the first division. The following season, they did better and placed fourth, qualifying for the Copa Sudamericana 2006. Although they were eliminated in the preliminary round, they won their first international game by defeating Bolognesi in a home game 3-2 but were eliminated because of the away goals rule. In 2006, they placed 6th on the aggregate table and did not qualify for any international tournament.

The beginning of the 2007 season smiled upon the "Santos". They won the Apertura for the first time after defeating Cienciano 2-1 in Cuzco, qualifying for the Copa Libertadores 2008. Despite not finishing in the top 6 places in the Clausura tournament, thereby not fulfilling the condition to qualify for the national title playoff, the Clausura winners Coronel Bolognesi had not satisfied the condition in the Apertura either, so no playoff was played and San Martín were awarded the national title on the basis of its better aggregate record throughout the season.

tadium

U. San Martin currently do not own a stadium. Therefore they play in the different stadiums of Lima. They have used the Estadio Nacional and Estadio Alejandro Villanueva in the past. Today they choose the Estadio San Martin de Porres which is used by Sporting Cristal. San Martin, however, are known to favor Universitario's stadium, Estadio Monumental "U". The stadium they choose mostly depends on how many people are expected to attend a game.
