OverviewEdit

Outside the British Home Championship, Argentina–Uruguay is one of the oldest fixtures in international football. During the 1910s and 1920s they regularly played each other up to four times a year. In addition to South American Championship matches, the Copa Premier Honor Uruguayo was one of several trophies the two national teams regularly competed for during this era. The others included the Copa Premier Honor Argentino, which was played in Buenos Aires, the Copa Lipton and the Copa Newton.[1]</ref>[2]

For the final game in 1924, both teams were selected by dissident national associations. The Argentina team represented the "Asociación Amateurs de Football" while the Uruguay represented the "Federación Uruguaya de Football", both associations formed outside official bodies AFA and AUF.
