Career Summary

The 22-year-old central midfielder will occupy an international roster slot on the Club’s inaugural roster.

Alcívar has played 83 times for his boyhood club LDU Quito, scoring five goals and contributing six assists. He started all six matches in LDU’s Copa Libertadores campaign this season and scored a brace during second leg of the club’s Round of 16 Copa Sudamericana fixture against Gremio to put his side through on aggregate against the Brazilians.

Alcívar was key to Ecuador’s youth national team success over the course of the 2019 season. The midfielder made four appearances for the title winning U-20s at the South American Championships which qualified Ecuador to the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup later that summer.

A third-place finish was on the cards for Ecuador in that competition, the country’s best finish at a U-20 World Cup. Alcívar played six matches and put in a 112 minute shift in the third-place playoff against Italy, a 1-0 win for Ecuador.
