Uruguayan Football Stakeholders Enhance in-Stadium Players’ Protection after Strike

Uruguayan Football Stakeholders Enhance in-Stadium Players’ Protection after Strike
In the Summer of 2022, the Uruguayan players’ representative organization (MUFP)[1] went on a strike to improve footballers’ safety and security conditions in the country. This caused Uruguayan sports stakeholders to implement new safety and security rules for football stadiums.

This whole situation kicked off when turmoil events were experienced at Villa Española, a Montevideo-based second division club (Segunda División Profesional). According to local Uruguayan media outlets, there was a “political conflict that escalated into requiring state intervention and, after a series of bad results, spilled over to the players.”
