Montevideo Wanderers Fútbol Club, usually known simply as Wanderers is a Uruguayan football club based in Montevideo. The club are currently members of the Primera División and play at the Estadio Viera. As well as football, the club also has teams playing basketball, volleyball, athletics, futsal, pool and pelota.


The team of 1906 that won the Primera División and Copa Competencia championships.

The club was founded in 1902.[1]

They joined the Primera División in 1903, winning it in 1906 and 1909. In 1908 they won the Copa de Honor and the Copa de Honor Cousenier. They won the Copa de Honor for a second time in 1910, before going on to win the Copa Cusenier again in 1912.

In 1923 the club also began entering a team in the league created by the breakaway Uruguayan Football Association. They won the league in its first season.[citation needed]

By the end of the 1940s the club was suffering from financial problems, and to avoid bankruptcy several of their best players – including Obdulio Varela and José María Medina – were sold. In 1961 they were relegated to the second tier. Although they returned to the Primera División, they were relegated again in 1966. In 1969 the club left Montevideo and moved to Las Piedras.[citation needed]

They returned to both the Primera División and Montevideo in 1974, qualifying for the Copa Libertadores in their first season back in the top division.

The club suffered further financial problems in the 1990s, and were relegated at the end of the 1998 season. They returned to the Primera División again in 2001.[citation needed]


The club had more than four home grounds during its first 30 years, including Liverpool's current stadium, Estadio Belvedere. Its current home stadium is Estadio Viera located in the Prado neighbourhood of Montevideo.[citation needed]




  1. ^ Apart from the three AUF (official competition) titles, the club also won the 1923 championship organised by dissident body "Federación Uruguaya de Football (FUF)". Nevertheless, the FUF championships have not been recognised by AUF.[3]
