Football Trophy Guarantor
The man who started his career as the coach of Kuala Muda Naza, a Malaysian club, has a strong ambition to assist Bali in conquering Asia.
Stefano “Teco” Cugurra. 47, is the new face of Indonesia’s football domination. Teco guarantees trophies for the clubs he manages. Three League 1 titles in three consecutive seasons for two different teams is proof of the “lucky hands” of the tactician born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Bali United won its second successive title in the 2021-2022 BRI League 1. This affirmed the new era in Indonesia’s football history that Stefano “Teco” Cugurra had carved out. Under him, the “Tridatu Warriors” (Bali United’s nickname) became the first team to win the league title in successive seasons since the Indonesia League started with its inaugural 1994-1995 season. He also led the Tridatu Warriors to record the highest League 1 points since 2017. Teco, too, presented Bali with its first championship title in 2019.
