Liverpool Fútbol Club
is a Uruguayan football
club based in Montevideo
. The club joined the first division for the first time in 1919.
The club has its roots in the student team from the Catholic Capuchin
school in Nuevo París, which began playing in 1908. The club took on the name Liverpool
as there were many cultural links between the two areas; the majority of coal ships arriving in Montevideo came from the busy English port. A number of clubs took on Anglicised names, such as league rivals Montevideo Wanderers F.C.
; in this case, the team paid homage to Liverpool F.C.
For the 2005–06 season, the away kit changed to a new all red one, thus looking exactly like the English Liverpool Football Club
. Liverpool plays home matches in Estadio Belvedere
(Belvedere Stadium), formerly owned by the Montevideo Wanderers.
Liverpool have failed to win any domestic titles so far. They are famously dubbed as the greatest team in the league never to win the title of champions.
They have also never won either of the major cups, they have reached the final of the Torneo Apertura and liguilla, both in 1995 only to be beaten by Club Atlético Peñarol
and Defensor Sporting
