India - List of Federation Cup Winners


The Federation Cup was instituted as a tournament for champion clubs in 1977. The tournament did not provide entry for the champion teams of all the AIFF affiliates, for that would have not only brought in too many weak teams, but also would have meant only one team from Bengal, Goa, Maharashtra, Punjab and Kerala. So over the years the format changed and changed.
