Tammouz International Championship 1973 (Baghdad)


Played in July 1973 (Tammouz is Arabic for July) in commemoration of the start of the Baathist revolution in Iraq in July 1968.

The Iraqi team was the full national team (though it may have played as 'Army', which was the same team). None of the matches are full internationals, but the exact identity of Eastern European teams (youth, olympic or military teams, league selections or club teams) is unclear. Any additional information on that is welcomed by the author.
