Central Español Fútbol Club, usually known simply as Central Español is a Uruguayan football club based in Montevideo.


The F.U.F era[edit]

Together with Peñarol, Central founded F.U.F (Uruguayan football federation) in 1923 after being expelled from A.U.F. The F.U.F even made a parallel Uruguayan national team (dissident to A.U.F) that played several international games based on Peñarol and Central squads. After 3 years of existence the new federation was dissolved and both teams returned to A.U.F.


Central append 'Español' to its name after an agreement signed with a Spanish group in 1971. Central itself was born from a merge between 'Solís Bochas' and 'Soriano Polideportivo'.


In 1984 Central Español won their only Urugayan championship to date. The team managed by Liber Arispe during campaign.
