Turnamen ini awalanya diselenggarakan di Korea Selatan dan diadakan pada 2003, 2005, dan 2007 antara delapan klub dari erbagai negara, termasuk Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma, yang dimiliki oleh perusahaan penyelenggara.

A corresponding event for women's teams began in 2006 with the name "Peace Queen Cup", featuring eight women's national teams from five continents.[5]

Sejarah dan Format TurnamenSunting

Sejak 2003, the Peace Cup is being held every two years, the Sunmoon Peace Football Foundation invites football clubs from various nations. South Korea's Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma participates in every tournament as both the club and foundation are sponsored by the same organization, the Unification Church.

From 2003 to 2007, the Peace Cup was played between eight clubs, divided into two groups of four teams. The winner of each group qualified for the final, which was played in a single match. 2009 Peace Cup Andalucia was held in Spain, and 12 teams participated in the competition.

The fifth competition will take place in South Korea in July 2012.[6]

Controversy over namingSunting

The original name of the competition was to be Sunmoon Peace Cup, named after Sun Myung Moon, the founder of the Sunmoon Peace Football Foundation. However, after being criticized that it was too religious, the organization changed its named to World Peace King Cup and started preparation for its first tournament. Before the inauguration of the cup, the Asian Football Confederation warned that the term "world" can only be used by competitions organized by FIFA, and "king" can be used by competitions held by a kingdom.[7]


From 2003 to 2007, the prize money of the tournament was approximately 2 million for the winning team[8][9] and €500,000 for the runners-up.[8]
