Esteban Marino, who was planning to hold a soccer practice 89 years ago, approached a group of youngsters and inquired as to whether or not any of them worked the next day. After a prolonged period of stillness, someone cracked a joke and said, “we survive on rents.” Emilio Pronzolino was the one who came up with the idea of calling the group the Rentistas, and it was accepted right away. The store owned by the Marino family had two different kinds of fabric: one was printed, and the other was red. The red color was chosen since the printed cloth was more popular than the red one. The latter was selected for the straightforward reason that it offered the best value for the money.
When it came to competition in sports, we played exhibition games for the first three years before joining the Centennial League, which we won three times and were winners of all three times. As a result of financial difficulties in the 1940s, the club came dangerously close to withdrawing from football competition.
However, because of the tremendous amount of work put in by its supporters, the situation was able to be turned around, and in 1947, the club was finally able to become officially registered with the AUF. Rentistas was the first team from the area (barrio) Cerrito de la Victoria to be promoted to Uruguay’s first division in 1971. Cerrito de la Victoria is located in Montevideo. They did not leave till the year 1980. The Rentistas were relegated to the second level on three separate occasions (1989–1992, 1997–2001, and 2004–2007).
In 1998, Rentistas opened the doors to their brand new stadium, which was named Complejo Rentistas. The team earned a spot in the CONMEBOL Cup 1999 by finishing in second place in the Clausura competition.
Estadio Complejo Rentistas is a multi-use stadium in Montevideo, Uruguay. At this time, the majority of its use is reserved for football games. It is the venue where Club Atlético Rentistas plays their home games.
The stadium holds 6,500 people and was opened in 1998.
