Artemio Franchi Trophy

The Artemio Franchi Trophy was an official competition[1] held twice (1985 and 1993) between the champions of the UEFA European Championship and the Copa América. It was the national team equivalent to the Intercontinental Cup featuring the top European and South American clubs, and can be considered a precursor of the King Fahd Cup, played in 1992 for the first time and renamed the FIFA Confederations Cup after FIFA took over its organization for the third edition in 1997.

The trophy was named after the late Artemio Franchi, former President of UEFA who died in a road accident in 1983.
