HistoryEdit

The tournament was created in memory of the journalist former Nicolás Brondo Ferrer (1920–1965), habitual follower and chronicler of the team, died prematurely.

It has been played continuously every summer, except in the years 1976 (it was not organized), 1988 (reseeding the lawn) and 2006 (installation of artificial turf). Nor was it played in 1990 because of the water trickle that fell in Palma and the inability to find dates throughout the season to be played.

The trophy has traditionally been played in a single game, except four times (1977, 1992, 1995 and 1998) in which semifinals and final were played. Atlético Baleares has always been present in the dispute of his trophy, except on two occasions (1992 and 1995) in which the team fell in the semifinals when it has been played with four teams.

It was played at the Estadio Balear since 1966 until the stadium was closed. After was played at the Magaluf Municipal Sports Center (Calvià) (2013), and Son Malferit (since 2014). It is currently the oldest trophy of these characteristics played in the Balearic Islands.
