2013–14 Taça de Portugal

The Taça de Portugal (English: Portuguese Cup) (pronounced: [ˈtasɐ dɨ puɾtuˈɡaɫ]) is the main Portuguese national football knockout competition. First held in the 1938–39 season, the competition is organized by the Portuguese Football Federation. Before 1938, a similar but distinct competition was held under the name Campeonato de Portugal (Championship of Portugal), which effectively determined the Portuguese national champion and awarded the winning team with the same trophy that is currently awarded to the Portuguese Cup winners.

History[edit]

The first incarnation of the Taça was in 1912, but very few clubs could participate and thus it was not a regular competition, the fact which ended it in 1918, the Portuguese Federation doesn't take in account its existence. It was named Taça do Império since S.C. Império organized it (do not confuse with Taça Império, which was the trophy of the inaugural game at the National Stadium where the Champion and the Cup winner played against each other). In 1922 the Championship of Portugal (Campeonato de Portugal) was created and was played every season with all the clubs participating in elimination rounds, the winners were named Champions of Portugal and it was the primary tournament in Portugal, until the creation of the round-robin competition in the middle 1930s. With the success of this competition and the beginning of the recently created and official Portuguese Championship, the 1938–39 season, the Taça de Portugal (Portuguese Cup) was created and the tournament quickly became the second-most important in Portugal. It is organized by the Portuguese Football Federation (Federação Portuguesa de Futebol) and is played by all the teams in the three national divisions (Primeira Liga, Segunda Liga and Campeonato Nacional de Seniores).

As of the 2008–09 season, the cup is composed of 8 rounds (final included), with 1st level clubs joining at the 3rd round, the 2nd level clubs joining at the 2nd round and the 3rd and lower level clubs competing from the beginning. All rounds are played in a single game, except for the semifinals.

Currently S.L. Benfica holds the record of 24 trophies on this competition. Counting the old Championship of Portugal, which followed the same format and awarded the same trophy seen today, the total is 27.

The finals venue[edit]

Since 1946 the final game has been played at the Estádio Nacional near Lisbon in Jamor, except in 1961 (albeit Estádio das Antas being the home of FC Porto, an agreement was made between the two sides, since it was also quite nearer for Leixões to play), in the three years following the Carnation Revolution and in the season 1982/83, due to FC Porto pressure. In the years after the Carnation Revolution, the venue of the final game would be played at the home ground of the team that won the Portuguese Cup the previous year (note that when Boavista won the Cup two times in a row, the final of the next years were in Estádio das Antas (FC Porto's home ground at the time), since the Estádio do Bessa (Boavista's home ground) was too small to host the final.
