Club Atlético Progreso is a Uruguayan football club from Montevideo founded in 1917. They currently compete in the Primera División after winning the promotion play-off from the Segunda in the 2011/12 campaign.
In their early years the club led a largely unremarked existence until they made their first run in the Segunda División in 1942. In 1946, Progreso broke into the top flight for the first time in their history but relegated already after the debut season. For the next 33 years the team rotated between the third and second tiers of the Uruguayan football. Only in 1980 they returned to the footballing forefront.
Progreso enjoyed a meteoric rise in 1989 as they claimed their first and major silverware – the Primera División title. It should be mentioned though, that due to a calendar conflict in the 1989 season only the first round of the championship was held so each of 13 teams played only 12 games that campaign.
Progreso players wear red and yellow striped kits. The colors are inspired by the Catalonian flag and identified with the colors of anarchist movement. The team play their home matches at Parque Abraham Paladino which can hold up to 8,000 people.
