Club Atlético Progreso, also known simply as Progreso, is a football club based in Montevideo, Uruguay. Progreso currently plays in the nation's Segunda División. The team's red and yellow striped kit emulates the Catalonian flag. Progreso's Parque Abraham Paladino stadium is capable of holding 8,000 spectators.
The club was founded on April 30, 1917. In 1989, Progreso won the Uruguayan Primera División, the only championship in the history of the Uruguayan league to use a single round-robin format (13 games). This format was due to a calendar conflict with some national and international cups that year. Progreso's president at that time was Dr. Tabaré Vázquez, who was later the president of Uruguay from 2005 to 2010.
Progreso's first team kit in 1917 was white with black stripes. The kit expressed the team's affinity with the anarchist movement. The colors were later changed to red and yellow, the colors of Catalonia, which was known for its identification with the Spanish Revolution.
