Copa Newton was a football competition contested between Argentina and Uruguay. The trophy, donated by Nicanor Newton, was contested 27 times between 1906 and 1976.

History[edit]

Copa Newton was first held in 1906, one year after the first edition of Copa Lipton, and was continued on an annual basis until 1930, with the exception of 1910, 1914, 1921, 1923 and 1925-1926. It has only been played sporadically since, with just 8 editions played over four decades between 1937 and 1976.[1]
The cup has been contested 27 times in total, with Argentina the winners on 17 occasions and Uruguay on 10.
