UEFA Intertoto Cup


The UEFA Intertoto Cup is UEFA’s summer competition which allows clubs which do not qualify for the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Cup to sample the unique atmosphere of European club football – with three participants actually going on to take part in the UEFA Cup.

This competition was introduced in 1995 to replace the former International Football Cup (IFC), and not only gives teams a taste of European action, but also allows many of them to fine-tune their preparations for the winter domestic season.

The UEFA Intertoto Cup provides clubs which do not qualify for the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Cup to sample the unique atmosphere of European club football during the summer months.

Qualification bonus
The three 'winners' per season of the competition also advance to the UEFA Cup first round. Indeed, FC Girondins de Bordeaux, who advanced from the 1995 UEFA Intertoto Cup to the 1995/96 UEFA Cup actually qualified for the final of that competition only to lose to FC Bayern München.
