The British League Cup was initially a tournament that was held in 1902 to raise money for the Ibrox Stadium disaster which saw 25 people die and 517 people injured. After the competition was held in which Celtic won over Rangers, it was put on hold for twenty-five years until it was reborn into a British tournament which took place in the British Isles every preseason between the winners of each league. This did add the Welsh and the Northern Irish winners while removing the runner-up teams from England and Scotland.
