Copa Lipton or Copa de Caridad Lipton was a football competition contested between Argentina and Uruguay national teams. It has been held 29 times between 1905 and 1992.

History[edit]

The trophy was donated by the Scottish tea magnate Thomas Lipton for a tournament between the two countries either side of the Río de La Plata with the condition that the teams be made up of only native born players. In the event of a draw the cup is traditionally awarded to the away team and the date and rules of the next tournament are set by the holders.

The tournament was contested on an annual basis between 1905 and 1929, with the exception of 1914, 1920-1921 and 1925-1926. It has only been played sporadically since, with just 9 editions played over half a century between 1937 and 1992. The cup has been contested 29 times in total, with Argentina the winners on 17 occasions and Uruguay on 12.
