Tifo display: Uruguay vs Venezuela
The initiative was brought up by representatives of Nacional and Penarol supporter groups who raised money to fund the project.
The banners were made in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and have arrived in Montevideo ahead of today's game.
One will feature the Uruguayan flag while the other will read "Dueños de America" (Owners of America) and will feature the image of the 15 Copa America wins and two World Cups.
The game at the Centenario has been declared a sell-out, and with 30,000 tickets already sold for next weeks qualifier against Peru, another sell-out is surely on the cards.
Tune in to @footballuruguay for updates of the Uruguay vs Venezuela clash.
Here is a sneak-peek of one of the banners:
