Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 22 November 2019 is Copa FGF.
The Copa Federação Gaúcha de Futebol, commonly known as the Copa FGF, is an annual cup competition organized by the Rio Grande do Sul state football federation for clubs that are in the first, second and third divisions of the Campeonato Gaúcho. It is held in the second half of the year and usually clubs participating in the higher levels of the Campeonato Brasileiro do not participate with the first team squad, using his academy.
The competition was founded in 2004, being the most important knockout cup competition in Rio Grande do Sul football. The most important league is the Campeonato Gaúcho, played in the first half of the year. It is known to be a competition that values Gaúcho football, because the greatest clubs in the state, Grêmio and Internacional, usually play the cup with their academy teams, opening up the possibility of other clubs win the title.
The Copa FGF usually receive a different name in each edition, honoring important people related to football in Rio Grande do Sul. The 2014 edition is called Copa Fernandão, in posthumous tribute to former Internacional footballer who died in June of the same year.
The current holders are Novo Hamburgo, having beaten São José 3–1 aggregate in the 2013 finals. With their 2nd Copa FGF title, Novo Hamburgo are now level with Internacional and Juventude for the largest number of title victories in the history of the competition.
