Malta - List of Christmas Cup Finals


When, because of hostilities during World War II, there was no possibility to continue the Christmas tourney, the Maltese FA launched a Knock-Out competition which was played during the Christmas period in 1939/40. The competition was resumed in 1966/67 as the famous Christmas tourney was no longer an attraction, partly because of Maltese clubs participating in the UEFA club cups. The last edition of the Christmas Cup was played between the two teams obtaining the best results against the Christimas tourney visitors.
