The World Cup ( Spanish Copa Intercontinental or Copa Europea-Sudamericana , English Intercontinental Cup or European-South American Cup ) was an intercontinental soccer competition that took place between 1960 and 2004 between the winner of the European Champions League (until 1992 European Cup for National Champions) and the winner the South American Copa Libertadores was played. From 1980 it was sponsored by the Toyota company and was therefore also called the Toyota Cup . In terms of qualification and the mode of the event, the competition was comparable to the Copa Interamericana and the Afro-Asian Cup , but much more popular. The competition was held for the last time on December 12, 2004. Two German clubs won the title: FC Bayern Munich (1976 and 2001) and Borussia Dortmund (1997). Of the 43 finals, European teams won 21 and South American teams 22.

After a first attempt in 2000, the FIFA Club World Cup has been held annually since 2005, with the participation of all six winners of the most important continental club competitions, which is referred to as its successor. In 2017, FIFA recognized the winners as club world champions.


The rivalry between European and South American football clubs began as early as the beginning of the 20th century. The competition between the best teams from the two continental associations was the brainchild of UEFA Secretary General Henri Delaunay . Because of his urging, CONMEBOL launched a South American competition based on the model of the UEFA national championship cup in 1960, the Copa Libertadores . The two "continental champions" should now compete with each other. On July 3, 1960, the first World Cup match between Real Madrid and Peñarol Montevideo was played in Montevideo . The game ended 0-0. Real won the second leg in Madrid 5-1, so that the first World Cup went to Europe. In the following years, the cup continued to be played in home and return matches. If there was a tie after wins after the two games, a third game was played as a decider. The amount of the respective victories was irrelevant.

So it came about B. 1961 for a third game between Benfica Lisbon and CA Peñarol, although Peñarol won his game 5-0 and Benfica his game only 1-0. The third game initially took place in the same stadium as the second game, until a neutral venue was chosen in 1967. Finally, in 1968 the away goals rule was introduced.

Some of the games were played with extreme commitment and tough duels, so that they came under criticism in the 1970s. In 1971, Ajax Amsterdam decided not to take part because some good players had suffered serious injuries the previous year. Later European winners also followed Ajax's example and preferred to let the defeated finalists participate. In the period from 1971 to 1979 this was the case a total of five times, but only Atlético Madrid won the title as a finalist in 1974. In 1973, the European football association UEFA unsuccessfully demanded the ban on the World Cup.

In 1981 the World Cup was fundamentally reformed. The Japanese car company Toyota took over the financing and gave the competition the official name Toyota Cup . Since then there has only been one game in Tokyo (or from 2002 to 2004 in Yokohama ), which took place just before Christmas. At the same time, in addition to the previous trophy, another trophy from the sponsor (the Toyota Cup) was awarded. This year, however, there were two games: for the winners of 1980 in February and the second for the winners of 1981 in mid-December.
