The 2012 Peace Cup was an invitational friendly football tournament that was held from July 19 to July 22. It was the fifth Peace Cup and was held in Suwon, South Korea.


The 2012 tournament featured some major changes compared to previous tournaments. The number of teams participating was reduced from eight to four. Therefore, the teams would immediately be playing one another in sudden death mode. The draws for these pairings were decided via polls on the official website. Due to these changes, the tournament would last four days, rather than ten as previous tournaments did. All matches were played in the Suwon World Cup Stadium.

As always, the host of the tournament was South Korean club Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma. The other teams were partly chosen because of the South Korean football players they have in their squads.
