Deportivo Walter Ferretti is a fairly new team. The club was founded in 1987 as part of the Nicaraguan Army. It was named for Sandinista, Walter Ferretti after his death in an automobile accident in 1988. They play in the Primera División de Nicaragua. In their short existence they have won five league titles and have been runners-up six times. The club doesn’t have a big web presence, but they seem to be very active on TwitterFacebook and YouTube.

Walter Ferretti was a member of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional or FSLN). He was an important part of the Nicaraguan government after guerrillas had taken over the country in 1979. In his time with the Sandinistas, Ferretti was a member of the FSLN Assembly, he commanded a battalion of elite Tropas Pablo Ubeda (the Ministry of Interior’s Special Forces Troops), and was Chief of the Sandinista Police. He spent part of his life in San Francisco.
