River Plate (Montevideo) History
The current club known as River Plate de Montevideo was formed by a merger between two previous teams known as Olimpia and Capurro. After it was established on the 11th of May in 1932, one of the first goals it set out to accomplish was the establishment of a new football field. The executives came to the conclusion that the “Olimpia Park,” which is now known as Estadio Saroldi, should serve as the team’s primary playing venue.
The decision to name the stadium in honor of River’s first goalie, Federico Omar Saroldi, who passed away due to an injury sustained during a match against Central Espaol, was made. Federico Omar Saroldi passed away after playing a match against Central Espaol.
Some of the finest players in Uruguayan history, like as Severino Varela and Héctor Sena Puricelli, were members of River Plate in the early years (from 1932 through 1942), when the club was still relatively young. Isabelino Gradn, who is widely regarded as the very first major star on the Uruguayan football scene, was a member of the Olimpia team before it was amalgamated with Capurro. The year 1992 was the year that River Plate finished in the league’s top place. Osvaldo Canobbio, Juan Ramón Carrasco, Edgardo Adinolfi, and Diego López were all members of the team, and Victor Pa served as the coach.
The abilities of the well-known forward Julio Dely Valdés were the key to Nacional’s championship victory. In 1997, River Plate finished in third place overall, trailing only Penarol and Defensor Sporting by a total of three points and securing a spot in the championship match. When those events took place, Fernando Morena was River Plate’s head coach. That generation gave birth to some of River Plate’s most talented players, like Hernán Rodrigo López, Pablo Gaglianone, and Gustavo Dáz, to name just a few of them.
River Plate (Montevideo) Stadium
Estadio Saroldi, which is located in the Prado neighborhood of Montevideo (on the western side of the city), has a capacity of 6,000 spectators, and is considered to have one of the greatest surfaces in the league. Typically, River Plate plays its home games at Estadio Saroldi.
The club that first played there, Club Atlético Olimpia, gave the stadium its current name, “Olimpia Park,” when it first opened. Following River’s incorporation into Olimpia and Capurro, as well as the untimely passing of goalkeeper Federico Omar Saroldi, who was among the first goalkeepers to play for River, the stadium was renamed in honor of the aforementioned goalie.
These facilities are utilized for the training of both the first-team squads as well as the youth squads. They are found in the neighborhood of Villa Colón, which is located to the northwest of Montevideo. This athletic facility features six football fields, a base camp for a squad that competes in the first division, locker rooms, dorms, fitness centers, and medical services. Since its opening in August of 1999, it has earned a reputation as one of the training camps in the country with the most advanced amenities.
