The 1972 Palestine Cup was the 1st edition of the Palestine Cup of Nations, it was held in Baghdad, Iraq between 1 January and 14 January. The tournament apparently acted as replacement for the Arab Nations Cup (or was just another name for it), which was otherwise not held between 1966 and 1985. Nine nations took part in the competition of which Egypt won.
