Introduced in 1961 as a way to generate toto receipts during the football-free summers. Played into groups, usually of 4 teams, the winners of which qualified for a knock-out competition which lasted until halfway the season, and from which teams that were active in another European Cup were excluded. After 1967, only the group stage was played, until UEFA revamped the tournament into an admission competition for the UEFA Cup in 1995.

No fewer than 12 different French teams did it once until 2005/06. The format changed considerably for 2006/07, allowing 11 UIC participants entrance to the 2nd qualifying round of the UEFA Cup, of which 8 reached the first round proper in 2006/07 and 9 in 2007/08. AJ Auxerre (1995 and 2006), Olympique Marseille (2005 and 2006) as well as Hamburger SV and RC Lens (both 2005 and 2007) joined Schalke 04, VfB Stuttgart and Villarreal in making the first round proper of the UEFA Cup twice through the UI Cup. VfB Stuttgart became the first club to qualify three times in the final edition in 2008, in which Stade Rennes became the 13th French club to do so.
