The Belgian League Cup was a Belgianassociation football cup created in 1973. The competition was held from 1973 by eleven clubs wanting to increase professionalism in Belgian football but lasted only three seasons before being disbanded. The tournament was then revived a first time in 1985 for two season and finally a second time in 1998 for three seasons. In 2000, due to disagreements over television rights, combined with poor attendances and a lack of interest from the top clubs, the trophy was cancelled after the 2000-01 edition. At that time the winners of the tournament qualified for the UEFA Intertoto Cup.
