Montevideo Wanderers History
The Montevideo Wanderers Football Club was established in 1902, and it debuted in the top flight of Uruguayan soccer the following year, in 1903. In 1906 and 1909, they were the first team to win their league championship. They were victorious in both the Copa de Honor and the Copa de Honor Cousenier that year (1908).
In 1910, they repeated as champions of the Copa de Honor, and two years later, in 1912, they repeated their success at the Copa Cusenier. 1923 was also the year when the club first entered a team into the league that had been formed by the breakaway Uruguayan Football Association. They finished first in the league in its debut campaign.
At the end of the 1940s, the club was having financial difficulties, and in order to prevent the club from going bankrupt, several of their greatest players, including Obdulio Varela and José Mara Medina, were sold. In 1961, they were demoted to the lower division of competition. In 1966, despite having returned to the Primera División, they were once again demoted to a lower division.
In 1969, the club uprooted its operations and relocated to Las Piedras from Montevideo. In 1974, they were promoted back to both the Primera División and Montevideo, and in their first season back in the top division, they were able to qualify for the Copa Libertadores. The club experienced even more severe financial difficulties throughout the 1990s, and as a result, they were demoted at the end of the 1998 season. In the year 2001, they were promoted back up to the Primera División.
