(The International Event of Football)
|Ground||Idrætsparken, Copenhagen, Denmark|
|League||Inter-Cities Fairs Cup|
Stævnet (Danish: the event or the meeting) or Copenhagen XI were a Danish association football representative team which had its prime before 1970, however it was active until 1994. Stævnet participated in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, the precursor of today's UEFA Cup, in 1955-58, 1958-60, 1961-62, 1962-63 and 1963-64.
The Copenhagen XI only competed in the above mentioned editions of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cups. All other tournaments involving a Copenhagen team were contested by individual clubs from Copenhagen. Usually Stævnet would feature players from its member clubs exclusively, but players were often borrowed from other Danish clubs. In the two matches against Chelsea F.C. in 1958 the team featured 8 and 7 Frem players respectively.
Most of the matches played by Stævnet were exhibition matches either against its Danish competitor Alliancen, or against foreign, often British, teams, sometimes displaying a common Stævnet/Alliancen team.
On May 10, 1960 it played the Brazilian 1958 World Champions in an unofficial international arranged in collaboration with the Danish FA and Alliancen. The Brazilian team won the match by 4-3. The Danish goals were scored by Harald Nielsen (2) and Henning Enoksen (1).
