NotesEdit

  1. ^ a b With Peñarol being recognised as a CURCC's continuity by FIFA[1] and CONMEBOL,[2] the club included the championships won by CURCC in its own honours.
  2. ^ Controversy exists on the date of the founding of C.A. Peñarol. The club's official position assumes a change of name of CURCC (founded on December 28, 1891). On the other hand, some historians state that "C.A. Peñarol" was established on December 13, 1913.[3]
