Cup

 

in sports:

(1) Sports competitions conducted, for the most part, in accordance with the Olympic system (whereby the loser is eliminated from further competition) and principally for sports where the participants are in direct opposition to each other.

International cups include world cups (for example, the Davis Cup, established in 1900, which is the unofficial world championship in tennis), intercontinental cups (the soccer cup that has been competed for since 1960 by the strongest clubs from Europe and the Americas), and continental cups (for example, the European championship cups in basketball, soccer, and hockey, most of which were established in the 1950’s and 1960’s). Cups are also held in individual countries (in the USSR in 1973 there were cups in 25 sports; the first was for soccer, dating back to 1936). One of the oldest is the Stanley Cup, awarded to the best professional hockey team of Canada and the USA (since 1892).

Sometimes the term “cup” is used for team or individual competitions conducted in accordance with different systems (round-robin, mixed, etc.)—for example, the World Cup for volleyball (since 1965) and the European cups for gymnastics (since 1955) and track and field (since 1965).

(2) A prize, as a rule, a challenge cup, which is awarded to the winner of competitions (either a team or an individual athlete).
