Malta - List of Cassar Cup Finals


The brain child of Chev. A. Cassar Torreggiani O.B.E., who also donated the cup, appropriately named after him, the Cassar Cup came into being in 1920/21 as a competition the proceeds of which went in favour of local charities. Pitting the two current top teams in the Civilian League against the Naval and Military champions and in subsequent years against representative sides from the three Services, who had a number of good players in their ranks, the charity competition became one of the major attractions in the local soccer calendar, especially in the Thirties. Resumed after the war years it continued to be an attraction but with the advent of the local clubs' participation in the UEFA Cup this competition lost much of its lustre, eventually forcing the ruling body to abolish this competition after the 1968/69 season.
