Replace STADIUM “STADE DE FRANCE”

The Estadio Gran Parque Central, popularly known as Parque Central, is the stadium of Club Nacional de Football. It is located in Montevideo, Uruguay, near Nacional headquarters (exactly between the streets Carlos Anaya, Jaime Cibils, General Urquiza and Comandante Braga), in the La Blanqueada neighbourhood. In this stadium, Nacional plays its home games.

This stadium was one of the venues of the 1930 FIFA World Cup, and it is the grounds in which the first match in the history of the FIFA World Cup was played (when in group D the United States defeated Belgium 3-0 on July 13th, 1930). This historical fact was remembered by FIFA on two occasions: 1987 and 2005. At the same time, another match was played at the now defunct Estadio Pocitos.[1]

The stadium has four main stands: Tribuna José María Delgado (North), Tribuna Atilio García (South), Talud Abdón Porte (West), Talud Héctor Scarone (East), named after famous Nacional players (like Atilio García, Abdón Porte and Héctor Scarone) and a chairman of the club (José María Delgado).
