*MITROPA CUP -

The first major international cup for clubteams, an idea of the Austrian Hugo Meisl. The decision to organize an international club competition was taken on July 16 and 17, 1927 in Venice, Italy, and the first matches were played on August 14 of the same year.
The MITROPA CUP carried a prestige only comparable to CHAMPIONS CUP of later decades. In 1940. competition was abandoned due to World War II. After the World War II, the cup was resumed (including unofficial editions in 1951 and 1958), but never reached its former status, mainly because of the Champions' Cup and other European club competitions. In the eighties entrance for a while was given to the second division champions of the participating countries, which led to Milan AC picking up the trophy in 1982. By then, the tournament had lost all credibility and tended to be hosted by mediocre Italian sides in an attempt to embellish their palmares. After this went wrong for Foggia in 1992, it has not been played any more - only partially due to the war in former Yugoslavia

*MITROPA CUP -

The first major international cup for clubteams, an idea of the Austrian Hugo Meisl. The decision to organise an international club competition was taken on July 16 and 17, 1927 in Venice, Italy, and the first matches were played on August 14 of the same year. The MITROPA CUP carried a prestige only comparable to CHAMPIONS CUP of later decades. In 1940.competition was abandoned due to World War II. After the World War II, the cup was resumed (including unofficial editions in 1951 and 1958), but never reached its former status, mainly because of the Champions Cup and other European club competitions. In the eighties entrance for a while was given to the second division champions of the participating countries, which led to Milan AC picking up the trophy in 1982. By then, the tournament had lost all credibility and tended to be hosted by mediocre Italian sides in an attempt to embellish their palmares. After this went wrong for Foggia in 1992, it has not been played any more - only partially due to the violent conflicts in former Yugoslavia.

**Tie decided by play-off in Subotica, July 10. Rapid won on lots.
