Copa de Honor Cousenier was an international football club competition which was played 13 times between representatives of the Argentina and Uruguay associations between 1905 and 1920.


The trophy was donated by "E. Cusenier Fils Auné & Cie.", a French liqueur company that had installed a factory in Buenos Aires in the 1890s,[1] giving its name to the competition. Initially, the cup was set to be played between representatives of AFA, AUF and Liga Rosarina.

The format of the cup consisted in a final between the last champions of Argentine Copa de Honor and Uruguayan Copa de Honor. If necessary, a second match was played. It 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.

  3. ^ Banfield won the Copa de Honor MCBA in 1920 and should have played Universal but the club disaffiliated from the Argentine Association soon after, therefore Boca Juniors (as runner-up) took its place.[3]
  4. ^ With Peñarol being recognised as a CURCC's continuity by FIFA,[4] the club included the championships won by CURCC in its own honours. Controversy exists on the date of the founding of C.A. Peñarol. The club's official position assumes a change of name of CURCC (founded on December 28, 1891). On the other hand, some historians state that "C.A. Peñarol" was established on December 13, 1913.[5]
