Juan Cominges (born October 1, 1983 in Callao) is a Peruvian footballer currently playing for Al-Qadisiya in Saudi Arabia.

Cominges is a Peruvian footballer who has risen to fame in the South American scene over the recent years. This right-footed midfielder first attracted attention due to being the younger brother of forward Paul Cominges, who had been an effective striker in the major clubs in Peru and at a few clubs overseas.

He got his chance in the youth divisions of popular club Universitario de Deportes and slowly earned a spot in the main team as well as in the national youth teams of Peru. To give him a chance to play more games he was loaned to the club Coronel Bolognesi of Tacna in 2002, where he performed well. He then returned to the 'U' in 2003, where he had another good year. Due to money arguments the next year he moved to rival team Sporting Cristal, where he performed so well, scoring several goals and leading the team to a national championship, that he was named the Peruvian player of the year by the media outlets.

In 2005 former 'U' star José del Solar :es:José Guillermo "Chemo" Del Solar, on his first outing as a coach, took Juan to Argentine club Colón de Santa Fe. Juan had several ups and downs in his performance, but secured a starting place as the new '10' of the Peruvian national team. The next year he migrated to Estudiantes de La Plata. He played a few games of the Copa Libertadores before developing a back injury, which kept him off the fields until July 2006. From there on he played irregularly, but he remained part of the championship-winning team. He has recently moved back to Sporting Cristal, where he is playing the 2007 season of the Primera División Peruana.

On January 2008 he was signed by Venezuelan club Caracas FC, making his debut against Union Lara.
