River Plate F.C.

River Plate F.C.

River Plate Football Club was a sports club from Uruguay, founded in 1897 in Montevideo.

River Plate is considered one of the four giants of the first era in Uruguayan football, alongside rivals Montevideo Wanderers and the current two bigs: CURCC (predecessor of Peñarol) and Nacional. River reached important achievements in the amateur era of the national football. In fact, the national side's uniform is a sky blue shirt in tribute to this team victories with their alternative sky blue shirt over Argentina's Alumni, the most important club of the amateur era in that country, against which River remained unbeaten.

After the second decade of the twentieth century, the club entered in ostracism and disappeared in 1929.

Famous quotes containing the words river and/or plate:

    Other roads do some violence to Nature, and bring the traveler to stare at her, but the river steals into the scenery it traverses without intrusion, silently creating and adorning it, and is as free to come and go as the zephyr.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Say “Yessum” to the ladies, an’ “Yessur” to the men,
    And when they’s company, don’t pass yer plate for pie again;
    But, thinkin’ of the things yer’d like to see upon that tree,
    Jes ‘fore Christmas be as good as yer kin be!
    Eugene Field (1850–1895)
