The Korea Cup was created with the name "President Park's Cup Asian Football Tournament" (1971–1975; simply known as Park's Cup) by the Korea Football Association in 1971, and was contested between South Korea national team and Asian teams to develop them. It changed its name to "President Park's Cup International Football Tournament" (1976–1979) in 1976, and invited not only Asian teams, but also teams of other continents since that year. It once again changed its name to President's Cup International Football Tournament (1980–1993) after South Korean president Park Chung-hee was assassinated in 1979.
