India - List of Santosh Trophy Finals


The Santosh Trophy is the Indian National State Trophy which started in 1941. In the early seasons, matches were played in two halves of 30 minutes each. The trophy was donated by the Indian Football Association (IFA), the parent body of Bengal football, in the memory of late Maharaja Sir Manmatha Nath Roy Chowdhary of Santosh (now in Bangladesh). The late Maharaja remained the president of the IFA for a long time. The runners-up trophy, Kamla Gupta Trophy, was donated by late Dr. S.K. Gupta, ex-president, IFA in the memory of his wife. One more trophy, Sampangi Cup, was presented by the Mysore Football Association, now Karnataka Football Association in 1952, in the name of well-known football Sampangi. The trophy is for the third placed team (between losing semi-finalists).
