The Palestine Cup of Nations is a football competition which was held between Arab countries. The cup was established in 1972 at the initiative of Said al-Sabeh, president of the Supreme Council for Palestinian Youth Welfare. Iraq was chosen to host the first edition in the same year. The aim of the initiative was to create a new Arab championship that would reunite sport in the Arab countries, as well as with the aim of proving Arab affiliation and support for the Palestinian cause. The tournament was also created to be an alternative to the Arab Cup of Nations during the long interruption between 1966 and 1985 and did not account as the Arab Cup. The third and last edition was held in 1975.
