  URUGUAY  
     
 

The Uruguay national football team (Spanish: Selección de Fútbol de Uruguay) represents Uruguay in international football and is controlled by the Uruguayan Football Association (Spanish: Federación Uruguaya de Fútbol, AUF), the governing body for football in Uruguay.

The AUF was founded in1900, became a member of CONMEBOL in 1916, and a member of FIFA in 1923. The Uruguay Football Association League was founded in 1900 by clubs: Albion Football Club, Central Uruguay Railway Cricket Club (C.U.R.C.C.  ), Deutscher Fussball Klub and Uruguay Athletic Club. The league, with different names, ran from 1900–1931. The first champion of the amateur era was C.U.R.C.C.  The professional league was inaugurated in 1932. The first champion of the professional era was Peñarol.

Uruguay is undoubtedly one of the most successful teams in the world. The Uruguayans have won two World Cup titles (1930, 1950), two Olympic Tournaments (1924, 1928), and the Copa America a record 15 times. Uruguay's record is impressive considering it is one of the smallest countries in the world. It is home to 3.3 million people, of whom 1.8 million live in the capital Montevideo.
