The Uniroyal International Championship, named for rubber corporation Uniroyal, was a golf tournament on the European Tour.

It was played just twice, in 1976 when it was called the Uniroyal International and won by Englishman Tommy Horton, and the following year, once the word "Championship" had been added to the name, and Seve Ballesteros of Spain was the victor. Both stagings were held at Moor Park Golf Club near Rickmansworth, to the north of London, England.

The prize fund in the second year was £29,010, which was mid-range for a European Tour event at that time.
