NotesEdit

  1. ^ With Peñarol being recognised as a CURCC's continuity by FIFA,[3] the club included the championships won by CURCC in its own honours. 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.[4]
