Mediterranean Cup and Mediterranean Games - Overview


These are two different tournaments for countries surrounding the Mediterranean. Most 'major' Southern European countries (France, Italy, Spain, Yugoslavia) take part with unofficial (B, amateur) sides. This has not been indicated below. There have been three tournaments for the Mediterranean Cup (the first officially called Friendship Tournament, the second East Mediterranean Cup), but now only the Mediterranean Games are played.
