Uruguayan soccer returned after the Uruguayan Mutual of Professional Soccer Players (MUFP) stopped in the middle of last week


Uruguayan soccer returned after the Uruguayan Mutual of Professional Soccer Players (MUFP) stopped in the middle of last week due to the threats that Villa Española players had received and in demand for greater security on the fields.

The return match was that of Albion against Montevideo City Torque, which ended 1-0 at Parque Saroldi, thus resuming the 4th date of the Intermediate Tournament of the Uruguayan Championship.

The other matches will be played this weekend. On Saturday, Deportivo Maldonado and Wanderers, Liverpool and Rentistas, Nacional and Plaza Colonia play. On Sunday it is the turn of Danubio and River Plate, Boston River and Defensor Sporting, Peñarol and Fénix. For its part, Cerrito and Cerro Largo dispute the date on Monday. The return of soccer occurs after the Ministry of the Interior guaranteed greater security on the fields.

«We have raised different situations to attend to and correct, some already for the weekend and others that will be put into practice shortly. And in the face of these good returns, in the face of the commitment of the authorities and of all the actors both inside and outside soccer, we made a positive balance for which we decided to return to the competition,” said Diego Scotti, president of the Mutual, on Wednesday.
