Alpenpokal 1941-1942


Tournament held on two occasions between clubs from Austria and Bavaria during World War II (when Austria was part of the Deutsches Reich). The Austrian clubs played against the Bavarian clubs but not against each other (and neither did the Bavarian clubs). In both tournaments, all Austrian clubs finished with a positive record while no Bavarian club managed to do so.
After the war a similar tournament was apparently started in 1958 but abandoned after a few matches due to meagre attendances, apparently caused by the superiority of the Austrian sides. Instead the Cup of the Alps involving Italian and Swiss clubs was started in 1960 and gradually extended to clubs from France and (West) Germany (with clubs from mountainous regions such as Bretagne and the Ruhrgebiet winning it) but never to clubs from Austria.
