The first incarnation of the Portuguese Cup was in 1912, but very few clubs were able to participate and so it was not a regular competition, the fact that it ended in 1918, the Portuguese Association does not consider its existence. It was called Taça do Império, since it was created by S.C. Império (not to be confused with Taça Império, the trophy of the opening match at the National Stadium, where the champion and the cup winners played against each other). In 1922, the Portuguese championship (Campeonato de Portugal) was launched and held every season with all participating in elimination rounds clubs. The winners were named champions of Portugal (although the winners of the Portuguese championship are no longer among the Portuguese football champions)) and it was the main tournament in Portugal until the mid-1930s round robin competition was held. With the success of this competition and the beginning of the recently created and official Portuguese Championship, the Taça de Portugal (Portuguese Cup) was created in the 1938/39 season, and the tournament quickly became the second most important in Portugal. Organized by the Portuguese Football Federation (Federação Portuguesa de Futebol) and played by all the teams of the Primeira Liga, Segunda Liga (except the B teams), Campeonato Nacional de Seniores (without reserve teams), 22 District Championships runners. and of 18 Circular Cup winners.
