The Antonio Puerta Trophy is an annual summer tournament hosted by Sevilla FC since 2008. The tournament is dedicated to Antonio Puerta, who died on August 28, 2007 (at the age of 22) after suffering a heart injury during the inaugural match of the 2007-08 La Liga season against Getafe.



Played on 23 August 2008 against Málaga CF, the team promoted to La Liga that year. It served for remember Antonio Puerta and all the victims of the Spanair Flight 5022, the aerean accident occurred three days before.


Played on 21 August 2009 against Xerez, team also promoted to Liga BBVA that year as occurred in 2008 with Málaga.


It was played on November, during a Liga BBVA break because of UEFA Champions League Group Stage (matchday 5). The rival this time was Granada, team promoted that season to Liga Adelante. It has been the first time since this tournament exists that Sevilla lost the final match.


The fourth edition of the tournament was celebrated in summer again, during the pre-season. The guest for the first time wasn't Andalusian; it was RCD Espanyol, Sevilla twinned team after suffering a similar tragedy as happened to the organizing club in 2007 (Daniel Jarque's death).[1]
