In the majority editions of the competition, the trophy was held in direct specific matches (as well as a Supercup), in others cases, matches from another tournaments such as the Torneio Rio-São Paulo (1957) and Campeonato Brasileiro (1975, 1980, 1987) were used. Due precisely to the success of the Torneio-Rio São Paulo, for several editions there was no interest among the teams to compete. After the creation of the Campeonato Brasileiro in 70's, fewer dates were available in the season, and this also contributed to the dispute being abolished.
