The Club Championship (Spanish: El Campeonato de Clubes), is the top level of rugby union in Uruguay.

History[edit]

Rugby was introduced to Uruguay as early as the late 19th century, but did not really take off in formal terms until the mid-20th. The spur for this was Carlos E. Cat,[1] who helped establish the Club Championship in 1950, and would become the first president of the U.R.U. in January, 1951.[1] The first Club Championship was contested by Old Boys, Colonia Rugby, and multisport clubs such as Montevideo Cricket Club (MVCC) and Carrasco Polo (which supplied two XVs).[1] This was successful enough to lead to the establishment of the Uruguayan Rugby Union on 31 January 1951, with Cat as president.

Over the years, various other clubs would join the Championship, including Los Cuervos (the Crows) at the end of the 50s, Old Christians at the beginning of the 60s, as well as Champagnat & Trébol de Paysandú in the 70s, and Pucaru in the early 90s, as well as La Cachila, Trouville, and Colonia Rowing.
