  1. ^ There is a controversy regarding the continuity of CURCC and Peñarol. One position holds that both clubs are the same club, and that in 1913 a group of CURCC partners 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 from CURCC that Peñarol founded a new club, different from the previous one, since they coexisted for a period of almost two years, until the dissolution of CURCC in 1915, the date that CURCC donated all its trophies to the British Hospital.
