HistoryEdit

Since its inception, the competition has been interrupted only between 1915–1919 and 1940–1946 due to the First and Second World Wars. The teams wear their island colours of green and white (Guernsey) and red and white (Jersey) and blue and white (Alderney). The competition is sponsored by Hepburns Insurance and now includes Ladies', under 21s and an under 18s competition for men.

The tournament consists of a semi-final and a final. Before the Second World War the draw for the semi-final rotated between the three islands, but since then Jersey and Guernsey have taken turns to play Alderney in the semi.

The Final is played on alternate years in Guernsey and Jersey. When in Guernsey it is now played at Footes Lane after being held at The Track[2] for a number of years and in Jersey at Springfield Stadium.

The first Muratti final took place at Springfield on 27 April 1905, but after two years the venue for Muratti matches in Jersey moved to Westmount until 1923 when Springfield became host in alternate years. Since 1930 Muratti matches in Jersey have been regularly held at Springfield with few exceptions.[3]

Up until 2005 a drawn final would be replayed. Seven finals were decided on a replay. Since 2006, the game has been decided on the day and three matches have gone to extra time since then, with all these matches being decided on a penalty shoot-out.

2016 saw Jersey host the 100th final.

The 2020 competition was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[4]

RecordsEdit

Jersey hold the record for longest run as champions, having held the title for eight years between 1958 and 1965.

Guernsey's longest unbeaten run was a stretch of five finals between 1932 and 1936. They were prevented a sixth straight win by a tie in 1937, the only year the title has been shared. Guernsey won it in 1938 meaning they held the trophy for seven years, albeit one of those shared.

  • The biggest victory margin is an 18–0 win by Jersey over Alderney in the 1994 semi-final.
  • The biggest victory margin in a final was 7–1 in 1926 when Jersey beat Alderney.
  • The highest scoring final was in 1957 when Guernsey beat Jersey 6–4.

Change of nameEdit

It was reported in March 2009 that the name of the competition would have to be changed due to proposed legislative restrictions on tobacco advertising in Jersey.[38] Although the Muratti brand of cigarettes is not sold in Jersey, the name of the tobacco manufacturer linked to the name of the trophy would fall within the ban on promotion of brands.[39]
