One position holds that both clubs are the same club, and that in 1913 a group of partners CURCC separated to continue the football activity under the name of CURCC/Penarol, definitely changing to the current name of CA Peñarol in 1914. Another position, promoted mainly by Nacional, says on separation between Peñarol CURCC and founded a new club, different from the previous one, since coexisted for a period of almost two years, until the dissolution of CURCC in 1915, date that CURCC donated all his trophies to British Hospital.
