Amateur Titles (31)

11 Nacional 
   Peñarol [includes C.U.R.C.C. from which Peñarol originated] [2]

 4 River Plate [1]
   Wanderers

 1 Rampla Juniors

NB: all teams are from Montevideo; note that the Consejo Provisorio
    was a unification tournament after the FUF were dissolved and
    its clubs returned to the AUF (Wanderers actually had a team
    in both tournaments); as in the case of the comparable and
    contemporary schisms in Argentine football, we consider both
    championships as of equal value in the list of honours.  The
    AUF itself does not maintain a list of 'official championships'.

[1] the River Plate team that won four amateur championships in the
    early years was dissolved in the twenties, following the advent
    of professional football; the current River Plate team from
    Montevideo is a different one, founded in 1932 as a merger of
    Olimpia and Capurro.
[2] Nacional fans contest the relationship between C.U.R.C.C. and
    Peñarol; the fact is that the direction of the Railway (C.U.R.C.C.
    abbreviated Central Uruguayan Railways Cricket Club) decided to
    stop supporting the sports club in 1913, and its football section
    then decided to form an independent football team, called Peñarol;
    this new club took over C.U.R.C.C.'s place in the league and its 
    players.  So while the juridical entities may be different, there
    is no doubt that Peñarol are the continuation of C.U.R.C.C.'s 
    football section (as the club themselves claim).
