Taça de Honra (Honour Cup) is a Portuguese football tournament played between the best teams of the Lisbon Football Association (AFL). It's the third oldest competition in the country after the Lisbon and Porto championships, and the oldest still in activity. The format has varied and before the 1959–60 season it was mostly given to the winner of the Lisbon championship. Since then it's played as a four-team elimination tournament in the pre-season between the four best classified teams in the leagues from the previous season. After 20 years of inactivity, the competition returned in 2013–14 season.

History[edit]

The Lisbon Football Association took a decision of during the seasons of 1920–21 and 1946–47 to index the conquest of the regional championship of Lisbon to the conquest of the Honour Cup. It was decided the club that wins the regional championship receives the Honour Cup, even if the Cup wasn't played. Right in 1920–21, the Casa Pia, got a place in the winners list, even though they didn't compete, just because they won the regional championship. In 1921-22 even though Sport Lisboa e Benfica won the cup, it was Sporting Clube de Portugal that got a place in the winners list by winning the regional championship.
