About Peñarol

Club Atlético Peñarol (, from Latin language pinarolium: pinewood; English language: ) also known as Carboneros, Aurinegros and familiarly as Manya, is an Uruguayan sports club based in the Peñarol, Montevideo barrio, Montevideo, best known for its professional association football team. The team plays their home matches in Estadio Centenario, the largest stadium in the country, but also own a private stadium called Estadio Contador Damiani. The club holds long-standing rivalries with other football clubs, most notably Club Nacional de Football, with matches between the two teams referred to as "el Clásico del fútbol uruguayo". The word "Peñarol" in the club's name is the Castellan translation to the Latin term for pinewood, pinarolium; its Italian translation was used for Pinerolo, a town and comune in north-western Italy in the Regions of Italy of Piemonte. Subsequently, the Peñarol barrio was founded and named after the Piemontesi town.

Peñarol is the successor club of Central Uruguay Railway Cricket Club, which was founded on September 28, 1891 by United Kingdom railway workers. The club has since established itself as a major force in both Uruguayan and South American football. Penarol have won a record 48 Uruguayan Primera División titles. They were also the first ever winner of the Copa Libertadores, defeating Club Olimpia during the 1960 Copa Libertadores Finals. Since then, they have accumulated four more Libertadores titles, three Intercontinental Cups, and one Supercopa de Campeones Intercontinentales. According to the IFFHS continental Clubs of the 20th Century published in 2009, Peñarol were IFFHS continental Clubs of the 20th Century South America and the most successful South American club of the 20th century.

History

Central Uruguay Railway Cricket Club (1891–1913)


The Central Uruguay Railway Cricket Club was founded on September 28, 1891, through the impetus of employees and workers of Montevideo's Central Uruguay Railway (British-owned) company, which had operated in Uruguay since 1878. Of the 118 founding members of the club, 72 were British, 1 German, and 45 Uruguayan. Due to the complicated nature of the name for the Spanish-speaking followers, the club was usually known only as CURCC or "Peñarol" in honour of their town's coop located 10 km from Montevideo.

The first chairman of the new institution was Frank Henderson, who exercised his office until the year 1899. In 1892, CURCC started a football team to add to the Rugby union and cricket teams which had to that point dominated the club. The first football match for the club was against facing a combination of students from English High, and it finished with a 2–0 CURCC win.

In 1895, the club chose Julio Negrón to be its first Uruguayan Captain (association football), after a series of English players serving as captains.

In 1900 CURCC, along with Uruguay Athletic, Deutscher Fussball Klub and Albion, founded the Uruguay Football Association League. Debuting on June 10 with a 2–1 success over Albion, the first official goals for the club were scored by Juan Peña and William Davies. That same year the first match versus Club Nacional de Football took place. The match finished 2–0, to CURCC.

At the end of the 1900 season CURCC won the Primera División Uruguaya for the first time, a success they repeated the following year. In 1903, CURCC was the first club to score over ten goals in an official match of the Uruguayan championship, after defeating Triunfo 12–0 (this was equalled by Montevideo Wanderers in 1908).

After witnessing the first crowning of rivals Nacional as champions, and the suspension of
the championship because of the Uruguayan Civil War, CURCC were again champions in 1905 and 1907. In 1907 W. Bayne took over the administration of the CUR company, and became the first president of the country who refused to be president of the club (with this going to lower-ranking employees). He did so based upon the continuing economic problems and work it entailed. This was to be the starting point for a series of conflicts between the company and the club, ending with the split in 1913.

In 1908, the club withdrew from the Uruguayan league in protest at the scheduling of the tournament, returning the following season. During the same year disagreements happened in CUR, after a group of team supporters burnt one of the wagons that were used to carry rival players.

After another championship in 1911, a study was commissioned to reform sectors of the club. The proposals included the participation of partners who were not employees of CUR (the railway company), as well as changing the CURCC name to Peñarol.

In June 1913, the assembly of CURCC rejected these proposals. The main reason for this being that the company wanted to dissociate the club from the Peñarol village, because of prejudices that had been formed toward it, mainly related to violence. However, in November of that year, CURCC approved the subject of football partners who were not employees of the railway. That request was delivered to the CURCC on November 15, 1913. Finally on December 13, the football section was renamed CURCC Peñarol, and later on march 1914 to Club Atlético Peñarol, a change approved by the Uruguayan football association and all the clubs involved in the championship, including Nacional.

One of the main pledges against the two clubs being the same is that they supposedly co-existed until 1915 and played matches simultaneously. However, that fact is contested by Peñarol, stating that while the CUR employees did engage in sports activity, those activities were merely recreational and not official in any way, as the football section was already independent from CUR, which is, again, contested by Nacional fans, as they claim,ex CURCC seniors seemed to continue with its own activities playing friendly matches in Rivera.

Amateur era (until 1931)

On the 12th of march, 1914 the CURCC Peñarol officially changed its name to the Club Atlético Peñarol, change being approved by the Uruguayan league on March 14. On May 13 of that year the executive power of the government granted legal personality to the club.

In these years, Peñarol failed to win the Uruguayan Championship, losing the final to River Plate FC in 1914, and finishing second to Nacional in 1915, 1916 and 1917, and during this period the most important event was the inauguration of the Las Acacias field, on May 19, 1916.

The first club championships under the new denomination arrived in 1918 and 1920.
However, in 1922, the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF) disaffiliated Peñarol and Central, which together gave birth to the Uruguayan Football Federation, parallel organ unrecognized by the AUF.

In 1926, Peñarol won the championship of the so-called Provisional Council, competition that arose following the reunification of the Uruguayan football (AUF and FUF) occurred a year before, currently unrecognized by the AUF as an official championship, even though it was the sole Uruguayan Championship of that year.

After performing for the first time a tour of Europe in 1927, Peñarol again lifted with
the Uruguayan championship in 1928 and 1929. This last year, Julio María Sosa was declared as the first honorary president of the club. The following year, Peñarol played for the first time an official match in the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo, which ended with a 1–0 win over Olimpia Asunción.

Start of the professional era and first titles (1932–1959)

Peñarol in 1938

On April 29, 1932, the AUF officially introduced professionalism, with the debut of Peñarol versus Club Atlético River Plate (Uruguay). That same year Peñarol won his first professional championship with 17 victories in 27 matches, which enabled them to accumulate 40 points, 5 over their nearest persecutor, Rampla Juniors. Also in 1932, the club played its first classic of the professional era, which the aurinegros won 2–0.

Having placed second in the season 1933, in which John Young became the first scorer of the club in a professional tournament with 33 goals, Peñarol won the first of 4 championships in a row (1935–38), in addition to the Championship Competition in 1936. During this period the club appointed Francisco Tochetti as the second honorary president.

Peñarol closed the decade of the 1930 with a second place, after losing a match to Nacional, in a tournament marked by the first strike of professional footballers in Uruguay.

After five years of drought, Peñarol won the title in 1943, retaining it the following two years. That year also the club bought the land where years later was built the Peñarol Palace.

After the strike decreed by the Uruguayan Mutualist of Professional Footballers in 1948 due to which the Uruguayan championship was suspended, in 1949 Peñarol got a new crown, with a 4-point lead over Nacional, Óscar Míguez being the league's topscorer. Finishing second in 1950, Peñarol was again champion in 1951, 1953, 1954, 1958 and 1959. Peñarol was the second team to obtain the "quinquenio" (five years champion in a row) -after Club Nacional de Football had done the same between 1939 and 1943- and has done it twice.

Champion of America and the world (1960–1969)

Copa Libertadores in 1966

Peñarol has won the Copa America twice and the Copa Libertadores three times, matching with its rival Nacional, that is also three times world champion. Peñarol was the team that lost the most Copa America finals in the history.

In 1960, Peñarol qualified as a champion of the Uruguayan championship in 1959, to the then newly created Champions Cup of America (current Copa Libertadores), competition that brought together the champions from seven countries affiliated to the CONMEBOL (although the representatives of Peru, Ecuador and Venezuela did not attend the tournament). Peñarol made its debut in this tournament on April 19, against Club Jorge Wilstermann of Bolivia in a 7–1 thrashing, with the first goal of the match (and the tournament) coming courtesy of Luis Borges.

After eliminating San Lorenzo de Almagro in semifinals, the club won its first continental championship after beating Olimpia of Paraguay. Late in the season, the club lost the final of the Intercontinental Cup (football), also created that year, after a 0–0 home draw against Real Madrid, in front of 71,872 spectators, losing 1–5 in Spain. Domestically, Peñarol added another title.

In 1961, Peñarol played a new version of the Champions Cup, but retained its continental title against Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras; 1–0 at home, with a goal by Alberto Spencer, and 1–1 in São Paulo. In the second half of the year, Peñarol won the Uruguayan championship, and for the first time in its history, the Intercontinental Cup, by defeating S.L. Benfica of Portugal by a 5–1 aggregate.

The next year, the club was one step away from achieving the consecration of the third Champions Cup. However, after losing in the first leg 0–1 and winning the second 3–2, in a game marked by incidents, a third match was needed against Santos Futebol Clube (which included Pélé), being played in neutral field at the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires. Peñarol fell 0–3, with the consolation being obtaining the Uruguayan championship again, which earned the club its first five consecutive years(1958–1962), which would befall again from 1993–97.

After a season without a title, highlighted at the international level by obtaining greatest goal-difference in a Libertadores tie, against Everest of Ecuador, 14–1 overall (5–0 and 9–1), Peñarol won the Uruguayan championship in 1964 and 1965, reaching and losing the Libertadores final in the latter year (to Independiente de Avellaneda). However, in 1966 Peñarol won its third continental silverware, after defeating Club Atlético River Plate in a third match played in Santiago, Chile, 4–2. That same year, a second Intercontinental Cup was won, after overcoming Real Madrid 2–0, both in the Centenario and in Madrid.

In the following years, Peñarol continued its title achievements both nationally and internationally, adding the Supercopa Sudamericana in 1969 of Intercontinental Champions in 1969, tournament that brought together South American clubs that had won the Intercontinental Cup, being officially recognized by the CONMEBOL in 2005.

During this period Peñarol had also the highest recorded unbeaten period in the Uruguayan championship, which was extended to 56 matches between September 3, 1966 and September 14, 1968, when they fell 0–2 to Liverpool FC (Montevideo). This marked is also the longest unbeaten
done by any South American professional club at the first division and the second if one
considers the amateur stage, behind Boca Juniors.

Notable past Peñarol players include Luis Cubilla, Pedro Virgilio Rocha, Alberto Spencer and Juan Joya, among others.

The transition (1970–1979)

In 1970, Peñarol again reached the finals of Copa Libertadores, which it lost to Estudiantes de La Plata. It is worth mentioning that at that tournament the club achieved the greatest goal-difference in the history of the competition after beating Valencia in Venezuela by 11 to 2.

As of January 21, 2011, 504 games have been played, Peñarol winning 181 of them, Nacional 162 and the other 161 ending tied.
}}
, for the "Roberto Chery Cup",
Brazil national football team and Argentina national football team
tied 3–3, respectively wearing Peñarol and Uruguay kits. The cup was then gifted to Peñarol,
as Chery was the club's goalkeeper. He died on May of that year, after the
South American Championship 1919 in Brazil.

Stadium

Peñarol frequently plays

Peñarol generally play at the state-owned Estadio Centenario, which was inaugurated on July 18, 1930. It has a capacity of 65,000, and the pitch measures 110 x 70 metres. It is located in the Batlle Park suburb of Montevideo.

However, Peñarol has its own stadium, the 12,000-capacity José Pedro Damiani (formerly "The Acacias"), which was inaugurated on April 19, 1916. Generally the ground is not used by the club due to its low capacity and rudimentary infrastructure, although it has been used on several occasions, most recently in August 1997 against Rampla Juniors.

Currently there are negotiations by the investor group, Ficus Capital, and the club, to build a stadium that could meet the requirements to host not only local fixtures but also international competitions. Primarily the idea is to build a stadium of approximately 40,000 seats, or to rebuild Acacias to reach such a capacity. Currently, Peñarol is asking the Ministry of Works to give the club a large plot of public land which has been selected for the building of the stadium, and a Brazilian firm is in the running to build this new stadium which aims to become the most modern in South America.

These championships are not recognised by the AUF. Peñarol won one of those FUF championship (1924).
