The Taça Ribeiro dos Reis (Ribeiro dos Reis Cup), was a competition organized by the Portuguese Football Federation started in the 1961–62 football season and which had its last edition on the 1970–71 season. It is named after António Ribeiro dos Reis, a former Portuguese football player, coach, journalist, and FPF director, and the first Portuguese nominated for the FIFA Refereeing Committee.

The competition was played at the end of the season between teams from first and second divisions. Usually first division clubs skipped the competition or simply did not use their first teams. Most notably, only four first division teams (Atlético CP, Olhanense, Sporting da Covilhã and Salgueiros) participated in the 1962 and out of ten editions both Porto and Sporting CP only participated in less than half of them.[citation needed]

Though some sectors consider it a predecessor of Portuguese League Cup, due to the lack of commitment of the most important clubs in the country, the Ribeiro dos Reis Cup isn't regarded as a major competition by some Portuguese media or included in their recent lists of official trophies earned by Portuguese football clubs.[1][2][3]

Format[edit]

Teams were divided in 4 groups according to geographical proximity. Teams played against each other once in group matches. The winners of the groups advanced to one legged semi-final (one for southern teams and another for northern teams). Semi-final winners advanced to the final, semi-final losers played for the third place playoff. In the last two editions there were 7 groups and a quarter-final phase, with one team receiving a bye through the next round.
