Sunday, the Uruguayan Primera Division finally started play. The league is currently changing the Uruguayan football season from the European format to a calendar year format.
After 11 seasons in the European format, in 2017 the league will be play from January to December.
The change has had several delays, first because cameras and increased security measures at stadiums were required, and then by storms that occurred Saturday, August 27.
The Uruguayan Primera Division will end on December 4. The 16 teams will play a round robin, totaling 15 games.
