The trophy was named after Juan Mignaburu, a politician and football executive who served as coach and president of Club Atlético Independiente between 1911 and 1921,[2] Mignaburu also presided dissident Asociación Amateurs de Football in 1919, where he fiercely opposed professionalism in football.[3] His political career included two periods as major of Avellaneda Partido (1898, 1899–1901).[4]

The cup had its counterpart, Copa Héctor Rivadavia Gómez, held in Uruguay in parallel with this competition.
