Plaza Colonia History
On April 22, 1917, Alberto Suppici established the club that bears his name. Up until the year 1999, they were members of the Colonia Regional league. The year 2000 marked the beginning of their membership in AUF. They were promoted to the Primera División Uruguaya in their very first season after winning promotion and finishing in seventh place.
This occurred in the year 2001. After a particularly unsuccessful season in 2003, the team was relegated to the Second Division. The club was relegated to the second level in 2005 following yet another unsuccessful season after having been promoted to the top flight in 2004. They had some financial issues in 2006, therefore they decided not to compete in the championship that year. They returned to the Uruguayan 2nd Division after an absence of one season to compete in official tournaments during the 2006–2007 campaign.
After defeating Peñarol by a score of 2–1, they claimed their maiden victory in the Clausura Championship in May of 2016. They were given the nickname “Leicester City of Uruguay” as a result of Leicester City’s unexpected victory in the Premier League in the 2015–16 season. Prior to Plaza Colonia’s debut, the team had a record of 13th place out of 16. Peñarol prevailed against them in the championship playoff, which was played between the winners of the Apertura and Clausura divisions to determine who would be the super champion. Peñarol won the match 3–1 after extra time. They earned a spot in their very first continental competition, which will take place in the Copa Sudamericana in 2016. According to reports, a few of the guys had never even set foot on an airplane before. They were defeated by Club Blooming in the first round, which was decided on penalties. They qualified for the Copa Libertadores for the very first time in the club’s history in the year 2021, the same year that they won the Apertura tournament for the second time in their history. They were defeated in the championship playoff for the championship on December 7 by a score of 8–7 on penalties following a 1–1 draw at the end of extra time.
