Copa de Honor Cousenier is a defunct international football club tournament which was played 13 times between representatives of the Argentine, Rosario and Uruguay football associations between 1905 and 1920.

The trophy was donated by the Cusenier liquer factory, which gave its name to the competition.


The Copa de Honor Cousenier consisted in a final between the last champion of Argentine Copa de Honor Municipalidad de Buenos Aires and the last champion of Uruguayan Copa de Honor. If necessary, a second match was played.

The format was similar to Tie Cup but the final games were played at Montevideo instead of Buenos Aires. The first edition was played in 1905 and the last took place in 1920.
