Coppa delle Alpi (translated as Cup of the Alps), was a football tournament, first organized by the Italian national league to start 1960 and then aided by the Swiss League in 1962 for the reason that the majority of the Alps are in Switzerland. This competition ran from 1960 until 1987.

In the 1960s and 1961 editions ranking was compiled by adding the points of the Italian and Swiss teams. The tournament was won by the Italian federation in both editions, and the teams that represented it was given a cup of reduced dimensions (A.S. Roma, Catania Calcio, Hellas Verona F.C., Catanzaro Calcio, Triestina, U.S. Città di Palermo, Napoli Calcio and Alessandria Calcio in the 1960s and S.S. Lazio, Fiorentina, A.C. Monza Brianza 1912, Pro Patria Calcio, A.C. Reggiana 1919, Parma F.C., Lecco Calcio and Brescia Calcio in the 1961).

In 1998 an Italian father choose to restart the competition with only amateur teams from Italy,Switzerland,France (and Belgium in 2004 and 2005).

Every years in Geneva on a non-official tournament 8 teams of 15 amateurs players play for the first place.

The strongest team is FC Simioni with 6 victory and the strongest country is Italy and after Switzerland on the new part of the competition.
