George Castles, director of the tournament and a member of the executive council of the Uruguayan Football Association (AUF), confirmed on Tuesday that FIFA had encouraged Puma to remove the four stars of the Uruguayan men’s football team.
“This Monday, through Puma, we learned that FIFA will prevent Uruguay from having four traditional stars above the AUF shield showing the four World Championships,” Castellus commented on the show ‘What Do You Think’ (Radio Sport 890 AM)
FIFA will only allow two stars on the men’s team jersey and will not allow anyone on the women’s team jersey. “This is from the Qatar World Cup. When this information came to me this Monday, I immediately turned it over to the administrator.
FIFA understands that the Uruguayan national team has won only two World Championships (1930 and 1950 World Cups). However, the governing body of world football has on several occasions expressed its recognition as the world champions for the 1924 and 1928 Olympics.
Without further ado, when the AUF welcomed its 120th anniversary in March 2020, FIFA itself posted a note on its website entitled ‘AUF is 120 years old’: Considered the World Championship at the time.
Casals added: “On behalf of the AUF executive, we will try to appeal against the decision of the two championships of the 1924 and 1928 Olympics, which at the time were recognized as world championships. We rely on.
A clear example of what could be an argument for Celestee, an executive member of the AUF, is the fact that world titles are at the club level. For example, Real Madrid is considered a seven-time world champion, although it has won three Continental Cups (1960, 1998 and 2002) and only four Club World Cups (2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018).
“Maybe it will give you an expression of the problem, it’s one way or another, it’s solved, but beyond recognizing that Uruguay is a four – time world champion beyond winning four World Cups, our idea is to emphasize our thinking and our history to see if this decision can be overturned. If it is not canceled, Uruguay will be recognized as the winner of at least two World Cups hosted by the two-time World Cup champions (1930 and 1950) and FIFA (1924 and 1928 Olympics).
