Euro Cup

The Euro Cup – a pre-season tournament for the teams competing in UEFA competitions – was first contested in 1982. This competition replaced the Independence Cup which was transformed from a clash between the champions and FA Trophy winners to a tournament between the teams taking part in UEFA competitions in 1969. In 1993, the Euro Cup was replaced by the Lowenbrau Cup. However with the Lowenbrau sponsorship coming to an end, the competition will be known once again as Euro Challenge Cup as from 2004.

As from 2013, the tournament is no longer considered as an official competition.

Testaferrata Cup

The Testaferrata Cup was named after the owners of the Stadium in that period, that is the Testaferrata Moroni Viani brothers (who are still the owners of the ill-fated Gzira Stadium). It was first held in 1964-65 as a knock-out between the four leading clubs.
