Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The European/South American Cup, commonly referred to as the Intercontinental Cup or (after 1980) Toyota Cup, was a football competition endorsed by UEFA and CONMEBOL, contested between the winners of the European Cup and the South American Copa Libertadores. The cup trophy bears the words "Coupe Europ enne-Sudamericaine" ("European-South American Cup") at the top, which involve the ball. At the base of the trophy, there is a drawing of two maps, one from Europe, another from South America. 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. From 1980 until 2004, the competition was contested over a single match held in Japan and organized by Toyota, which offered a secondary trophy, the Toyota Cup. The competition was considered until the creation of its successor, the FIFA Club World Cup, the most important tournament at international level in which any club could participate, for that reason all the winner teams were recognised as world club champions.show more
