The Intercontinental Cup, also known as European/South American Cup, and also Toyota Cup from 1980 to 2004 for commercial reasons by agreement with the automaker, was an official international football competition endorsed by the Union of European Football Associations UEFA and the Confederación Sudamericana de Fútbol CONMEBOL,12 contested between representative clubs from these confederations, usually the winners of the European Champions' Cup now known as the UEFA Champions League, and the South American Copa Libertadores The competition has since been replaced by the FIFA Club World Cup
From its formation in 1960 to 1979, the competition was contested over a two legged tie, with a playoff if necessary until 1968, and penalty kicks later During the 1970s, European participation in the Intercontinental Cup became a running question due to controversial events in the 1969 final,3 and some European Champions Club' winner teams withdrew4 From 1980 until 2004, the competition was contested over a single match held in Japan and sponsored by multinational automaker Toyota, which offered a secondary trophy, the Toyota Cup5
All the winning teams are regarded by worldwide mass media and football's community as "world champions"678 The first winner of the cup was Spanish side Real Madrid, defeating Uruguayan side Peñarol in 1960 The last winner was Portuguese side Porto, defeating Colombian side Once Caldas in a penalty shoot-out in 2004

According to Brazilian newspaper Tribuna de Imprensa, the idea for the Intercontinental Cup rose in 1958 in a conversation between the then president of the Brazilian FA João Havelange and French journalist Jacques Goddet9 The first mention to the creation of the Intercontinental and Libertadores Cups was published by Brazilian and Spanish newspapers on October 9, 1958, referring to then Brazilian FA president João Havelange's announcement of the project to create such competitions, which he uttered during a UEFA meeting he attended as an invitee10111213 From the rise of the European Cup in 1955 to the announcement in October 1958 and finally the onset of Libertadores and Intercontinental Cups in 1960, Real Madrid CF the reigning European champion all over the period played two intercontinental club competitions, the 1956 Pequeña Copa del Mundo de Clubes and the 1957 Tournoi de Paris14 According to a French video record of the highlights of the 1957 Tournoi de Paris final match, between Real Madrid CF and CR Vasco da Gama, this was the first match ever dubbed as "the best team of Europe X the best team of South America", before the rise of the Intercontinental Cup1516 The aforementioned final match of the 1957 Tournoi de Paris, as well as a Real Madrid CF X Santos FC June 1959 friendly match held in Madrid won by the Spaniards, 5 x 3, were both mentioned as "being like a club world cup match" by the Brazilian press,1718 on the grounds that those were clashes between the European Champion and the champions of the most important leagues of Brazil1920
Created in 1960 at the initiative of the European confederation UEFA, with CONMEBOL's support, the European/South American Cup, known also as the Intercontinental Cup, was contested by the holders of the European Champion Clubs’ Cup and the winners of its newly established South American equivalent, the Template:Top scorer Copa Libertadores FIFA failed to authorise the competition in the 1960s21 in 1961 prohibiting the competition from taking place unless the participants gave it a "private friendly match" status;22 however, the competition went on, being endorsed by both UEFA and CONMEBOL all over its history, from 1960 to 2004, and both UEFA and CONMEBOL consider all editions official by including them in their records232425 It was the brainchild of UEFA president Henri Delaunay, who also helped Jules Rimet in the realization of the inaugural FIFA World Cup in 19302627 Initially played over two legs, with a third match if required in the early years when goal difference did not count, the competition had a rather turbulent existence The first winners of the competition were Spanish club Real Madrid Real Madrid managed to hold Uruguayan side Peñarol 0-0 in Montevideo and trounce the South Americans 5-1 in Madrid to win282930 After the victory of Real Madrid in the first edition of the Intercontinental Cup, Barcelona newspaper El Mundo Deportivo hailed the Madrid team as the First World Champion Club, on the one hand pointing out that the competition "did not include Africans, Asians and other countries part to FIFA", on the other hand expressing doubt that these regions might present football of the same high quality of Europe and South America31 The Spaniards titled themselves world champions until FIFA stepped in and objected; citing that the competition did not include any other champions from the other confederations, FIFA stated that they can only claim to be intercontinental champions of a competition played between two organizations32 Peñarol would appear again the following year and come out victorious after beating Portuguese club Benfica on the playoff; after a 1-0 win by the Europeans in Lisboa and a 5-0 trashing by the South Americans, a playoff at the Estadio Centenario saw the home side squeeze a 2-1 win to become the first South American side to win the competition333435
In 1962 the tournament grew more in worldwide attention after it was swept through the sublime football of a Santos team led by Pelé, considered by some the best club team of all times36 Os Santásticos, also known as O Balé Branco or white ballet, which dazzled the world during that time and containing stars such as Gilmar, Mauro, Mengálvio, Coutinho, and Pepe, won the title after defeating Benfica 3-2 in Rio de Janeiro and thrashing the Europeans 2-5 in their Estádio da Luz373839 Santos would successfully defend the title in 1963 after being pushed all the way by Milan After each side won 4-2 at their respective home legs, a playoff match at the Maracanã saw Santos keep the title after a tight 1-0 victory3740 The competition had attracted the interest of other continents The North and Central America condeferation, CONCACAF, had asked, unsuccessfully, to participate3941 Milan's fierce rivals, Inter Milan, would go on to win the 1964 and 1965 editions, beating Argentine club Independiente on both occasions4243444546 Peñarol gained revenge for their loss in 1960 by crushing Real Madrid 4-0 in aggregate in 1966354748
However, as a result of the violence often practised in the Copa Libertadores by Argentine and Uruguayan clubs during the 1960s,49 disagreements with CONMEBOL, the lack of financial incentives and the violent, brutal and controversial way the Brazilian national team was treated in the 1966 FIFA World Cup by European teams, Brazilian football—including its club sides—declined to participate in international competitions in the late 1960s, including the Copa Libertadores and consequently the Intercontinental Cup During this time, the competition became dogged by foul play50 Calendar problems, acts of brutality, even on the pitch, and boycotts tarnished its image, to the point of bringing into question the wisdom of organizing it at all
The 1967 edition between Argentina's Racing Club and Scotland's Celtic was a violent affair, with the third decisive game being dubbed "The Battle of Montevideo" after three players from the Scottish side and two from the Argentine side were sent off A fourth Celtic player was also dismissed, but amid the chaos he got away with staying on51525354AC Milan's Néstor Combin was left bloodied and unconscious after a brutal series against Estudiantes de La Plata
The following season, Argentine side Estudiantes de La Plata faced England's Manchester United in which the return leg saw Estudiantes come out on top of a bad-tempered series555657 But it was the events of 1969 which damaged the competition's integrity58 After a 3-0 win at San Siro, Milan went to Buenos Aires to play Estudiantes at La Bombonera596061 Estudiantes' players booted balls at the Milan team as they warmed up and hot coffee was poured on the Italians as they emerged from the tunnel by Estudiantes' fans Estudiantes resorted to inflicting elbows and allegedly even needles at the Milanese team in order to intimidate them Pierino Prati was knocked unconscious and continued for a further 20 minutes despite suffering from a mild concussion Estudiantes goalkeeper Alberto Poletti also punched Gianni Rivera, but the most vicious treatment was reserved for Néstor Combin, an Argentinean-born striker, who had faced accusations of being a traitor as he was on the opposite side of the intercontinental match586263
Combin was kicked in the face by Poletti and later had his nose and cheekbone broken by the elbow of Ramón Aguirre Suárez Bloodied and broken, Combin was asked to return to the pitch by the referee but fainted While unconscious, Combin was arrested by Argentine police on a charge of draft dodging, having not undertaken military service in the country The player was forced to spend a night in the cells, eventually being released after explaining he had fulfilled national service requirements as a French citizen58 Estudiantes won the game 2-1 but Milan took the title on aggregate58616263
Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport dubbed it "Ninety minutes of a man-hunt" The Argentinean press responded with "The English were right" – a reference to Alf Ramsey's famous description of the Argentina national football team as "animals" during the 1966 FIFA World Cup586263 The Argentinean Football Association AFA, under heavy international pressure, took stern action Argentina's President, military dictator Juan Carlos Onganía, summoned Estudiantes delegate Oscar Ferrari and demanded "the severest appropriate measures in defence of the good name of the national sport It was a lamentable spectacle which breached most norms of sporting ethics"586263 Poletti was banned from the sport for life, Suárez was banned for 30 games, and Eduardo Manera for 20 with the former and latter serving a month in jail58
Due to the brutality in these editions, FIFA was called into providing penalties and regulating the tournament However, FIFA stated that it could not stipulate regulations in a competition that it did not organize Though the competition was endorsed by UEFA and CONMEBOL as an official competition, René Courte, FIFA's General Sub-Secretary, wrote an article shortly afterwards stating that FIFA viewed the competition as a "European-South American friendly match"64 Courte's statement was endorsed by then–FIFA president Sir Stanley Rous, who then stated that FIFA saw the Intercontinental Cup as a friendly match65666768 Madrid newspaper ABC then pointed out that, though the Intercontinental Cup was not officially endorsed by FIFA, it was endorsed by UEFA and CONMEBOL, therefore being an "intercontinental jurisdiction" cup69 However, with the Asian and North-Central American club competitions in place, FIFA opened the idea of supervising the competition if it included those confederations, which was met with a negative response from its participating confederations, UEFA and CONMEBOL According to Stanley Rous, CONCACAF and the Asian Football Confederation had requested their participation in the Intercontinental Cup, which was rejected by UEFA and CONMEBOL707172737475 Nevertheless, some European champions started to decline participation in the tournament after the events of 196976
Estudiantes would face Dutch side Feyenoord the following season, which saw the Europeans victorious Oscar Malbernat ripped off Joop van Daele's glasses and trampled on them claiming that he was "not allowed to play with glasses"77787980 Dutch side Ajax, European champions of 1971, would decline to face Uruguay's Nacional due to the latter side's reputation for violent play, which resulted in European Cup runners-up, Greek side Panathinaikos, participating818283 Nacional's Luis Artime ended up breaking Yiannis Tomaras' leg in two places in the first leg as Nacional won the series 3-2 on aggregate81828384Dutch team Ajax won the 1972 series v Argentine club Independiente
Ajax participated in 1972 against Independiente858687 The team's arrival at Buenos Aires was extremely hostile: Johan Cruyff received several death threats from Independiente's local fan firms88 Due to the indifference from the Argentine police, Ajax manager Ştefan Kovács appointed an organized emergency security detail for the Nederlandse meester, headed by himself and team member Barry Hulshoff, described as a big and burly man88 In the first leg, Cruyff opened the scoring in Avellaneda at the 5th minute As a result, Dante Mircoli retaliated with a vicious tackle a couple of minutes later; Cruyff was too injured to continue and the Dutch team found themselves being assaulted with tackles and punches858687 Kovács had to convince his team to play on during half-time as his players wanted to withdraw858687 Ajax squeezed a 1-1 tie and followed up with a 3-0 trounce in Amsterdam to win the Cup85868789 Although Ajax were the defending champions, they again declined to participate a year later after Independiente won the Libertadores again, leaving it to Juventus, European Cup runners-up, to play a single-match final won by the Argentines86879091 That same year, French newspaper L'Equipe, which helped to bring about the birth of the European Cup, volunteered to sponsor a Club World Cup contested by the champions of Europe, South America, Central and North America and Africa, the only continental club tournaments in existence at the time; the competition was to potentially take place in Paris between September and October 1974 with an eventual final to be held at the Parc des Princes7676929394 The proposal, supported by the South Americans,76 was dismissed due to the negativity of the Europeans94
German club Bayern Munich also declined to play in 1974 as Independiente again qualified to participate95969798 European Cup runners-up Atlético Madrid from Spain won the competition 2-1 on aggregate9596 Once again, Independiente qualified to participate in 1975; this time, both finalists of the European Cup declined to participate and the competition was not played99 That same year, L'Equipe tried, once again, to create a Club World Cup, in which the participants would have been: the four semifinalists of the European Cup, both finalists of the Copa Libertadores, as well as the African and Asian champions However, UEFA declined once again and the proposal failed100
In 1976, when Brazilian side Cruzeiro won the Copa Libertadores, the European champions Bayern Munich willingly participated, with the Bavarians winning 2–0 on aggregate In an interview with Jornal do Brasil, Bayern's manager Dettmar Cramer denied that Bayern's refusal to dispute the 1974 and 1975 Intercontinental Cups were a result of the rivals being Argentine teams He claimed it was a scheduling impossibility, rather, which kept the Germans from participating He also stated that the competition was not economically rewarding due to the team's fan base's disinterest in the Cup To cover the costs of playing the first leg in Munich's Olympiastadion, the organizers needed to have a minimum of 25,000 spectators However, due to heavy snow and cold weather, only 18,000 showed up Because of this deficit, Cramer stated that if Bayern were to win the European Cup again, they would decline to participate as it held no assurances of income101Argentine Boca Juniors played German Borussia Mönchengladbach after European champions Liverpool declined to participate in the 1977 edition
Argentine side Boca Juniors qualified for the 1977 and 1978 editions, for which the European champions, English club Liverpool, declined to participate on both occasions In 1977, Boca Juniors defeated European Cup runners-up, German club Borussia Mönchengladbach, 5-2 on aggregate102103104105 Boca Juniors declined to face Belgian club Brugge in 1978 leaving that edition undisputed99 Paraguay's Olimpia won the 1979 edition against European Cup runners-up, Swedish side Malmö FF, after winning both legs106107108109 However, the competition had greatly declined in prestige After the 0-1 win of the South Americans in the first leg at Malmö, which saw fewer than 5,000 Swedish fans turn up, Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo called the Cup "a dog without an owner"76
The truth is that the Intercontinental Cup is an adventitious competition without foundation It has no known owner, it depends on a strange consensus and the interested clubs are not tempted to risk much for so little money, as evidenced by the attendance at the game in Malmö, played, of course, in absence of this year's champion, Nottingham Forest, by the Swedish team, finalist in one of the most boring and worst games played to cap off the European Cup since 1956“ ” Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo76
According to Brazilian newspaper O Estado de São Paulo, the deal for the establishment of the Interamerican Cup was made in 1968 by CONMEBOL and CONCACAF, and established that the Interamerican Cup champion club would be entitled to represent the American continent in the Intercontinental Cup110 According to the Mexican newspapers, after winning the 1977 and 1980 editions of the Interamerican Cup, Mexican clubs América and PUMAS Unam, and the Mexican Football Association, demanded, unsuccessfully, to participate in the Intercontinental Cup111112113
Rebirth in JapaneditUruguayan club Nacional won the first edition held in Japan, 1980
Seeing the deterioration of the Intercontinental Cup, Japanese motor corporation Toyota took the competition under its wing It created contractual obligations to have the Intercontinental Cup played in Japan once a year in which every club participating were obliged to participate or face legal consequences This modern format breathed new air into the competition which saw a new trophy handed out along with the Intercontinental Cup, the Toyota Cup
To protect themselves against the possibility of European withdrawals, Toyota, UEFA and every European Cup participant signed annual contracts requiring the eventual winners of the European Cup to participate at the Intercontinental Cup—as a condition UEFA stipulated to the clubs' participation in the European Cup—or risk facing an international lawsuit from UEFA and Toyota114
The first Toyota Cup was held in 1980 which saw Uruguay's Nacional triumph over Nottingham Forest The 1980s saw a domination by South American sides as Brazil's Flamengo and Grêmio, Uruguay's Nacional and Peñarol, Argentina's Independiente and River Plate take the spoils once each after Nacional's victory in 1980 Only Juventus, Porto and Milan managed to bring the trophy to the European continent In that decade, the English Football Association tried organizing a Club World Cup sponsored by promoting company West Nally only to be shot down by UEFA115
The 1990s proved to be a decade dominated by European teams, as Milan, Red Star Belgrade, Ajax, Juventus, Real Madrid, Manchester United, and newcomers Borussia Dortmund of Germany were fueled to victory by their economic powers and heavy poaching of South American stars Only three titles went to South America, as São Paulo and Argentina's Vélez Sársfield came out the winners, each of them defeating Milan, with São Paulo's inaugural win being over Barcelona The 2000s would see Boca Juniors win the competition twice for South America, while European victories came from Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, and Porto The 2004 Intercontinental Cup proved to be the last edition, as the competition was absorbed into the FIFA Club World Cup
De facto club teams' World Championshipedit
All the winning teams are regarded as de facto "world club champions"116117118119 According to some texts on FIFAcom, due to the superiority at sporting level of the European and South American clubs to the rest of the world, reflected earlier in the tournament for national teams, the winning clubs of the Intercontinental Cup were named world champions and can claim to be world champions,120121 in a "symbolic" club world championship,122 while the FIFA Club World Cup would have another dimension,123 as the "true" world club showdown,124125126 created because, with the passage of time and the development of football outside Europe and South America, it had become "unrealistic" to continue to confer the symbolic title of world champion upon the winners of the Intercontinental Cup,127 the idea to expand it being mentioned for the first time in 1967 by Stanley Rous as CONCACAF and the AFC had established their continental club competitions and requested the participation,68707172737475 an expansion that was to occur only in 2000 through the 2000 FIFA Club World Championship Nevertheless, some European champions started to decline participation in the tournament after the events of 196976 Though "symbolic" or de facto as a club world championship, the Intercontinental Cup is official at confederation level, with both UEFA and CONMEBOL considering all editions of the competition as part of their official honours232425
Despite being chronologically the fourth international competition created to define "the best team in the world" – after Lipton Trophy, Copa Rio, and Pequeña Copa del Mundo, due to FIFA's inability to organize club competitions,128 – the Intercontinental Cup is considered by FIFA as one of the two predecessors116 to the FIFA Club World Cup, which was held for the first time in 2000 It had been regarded by FIFA as the sole predecessor,129 until the June 2014 FIFA Executive Committee meeting, which declared the 1951 edition of Copa Rio as "the first worldwide club tournament with teams from Europe and South America"130131
TrophyeditThe looks of Toyota Cup, awarded from 1980 to 2004
The competition trophy bears the words "Coupe Européenne-Sudamericaine" "European-South American Cup" at the top At the base of the trophy, there is the round logo of UEFA and a map of South America in a circle
During the sponsorship by Toyota, the competition awarded an additional trophy, entitled "Toyota Cup"
From 1960 to 1979, the Intercontinental Cup was played in two legs Between 1960 and 1968, the cup was decided on points only, the same format used by CONMEBOL to determine the winner of the Copa Libertadores final through 1987 Because of this format, a third match was needed when both teams were equal on points Commonly this match was host by the continent where the last game of the series was played From 1969 through 1979, the competition adopted the European standard method of aggregate score, with away goals
Starting in 1980, the final became a single match Up until 2001, the matches were held at Tokyo's National Stadium Finals since 2002 were held at the Yokohama International Stadium, also the venue of the 2002 FIFA World Cup final
