HistoryEdit

The F.U.F eraEdit

Together with Peñarol, Central founded FUF (Uruguayan football federation) in 1923 after being expelled from AUF. The FUF even made a parallel Uruguayan national team (dissident to AUF) that played several international games based on Peñarol and Central squads. After 3 years of existence the new federation was dissolved and both teams returned to AUF.

MergingEdit

Central append "Español" to its name after an agreement signed with a Spanish group in 1971. Central itself was born from a merge between "Solís Bochas" and "Soriano Polideportivo".

ChampionsEdit

In 1984 Central Español won their only Uruguayan championship to date. The team managed by Liber Arispe during campaign.
