The Rovers Cup is an annual football tournament held by WIFA. It is the second oldest tournament of India. The championship was started by some British football enthusiasts at Bombay, Maharashtra in 1891, as a form of amusement. The First Worcester Regiment was the first team to win the title. This championship was last time held in the 2000–01 season, when Mohun Bagan AC beat Churchill Brothers SC by 2–0 in the final. After the inception of the NFL, the Rovers Cup started to face problems. With huge costs and sponsorship deals issues, the tournament was finally stopped in 2001. The WIFA is making efforts to revive the tournament
