From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Bruges Matins (Dutch: Brugse Metten, French: Matines Brugeoises) is a yearly friendly tournament organised by Belgian football club Club Brugge K.V..

The name of the tournament refers to the nocturnal massacre in Bruges in 1302, which is called the Bruges Matins. The tournament was first organised in 1976 and was initially a four-team competition; however, since 1991, with the exception of 1992, it was reduced to just a one-match tournament between Club Brugge and another team. Normally, teams from abroad competitions are invited, but sometimes other Belgian teams take part (twice, a national team was present, namely Senegal in 1985 and Morocco in 1987).

The winner of the tournament wins a trophy called Goedendag, which is an alternative name of the medieval club-like weapon more commonly known under the name Morning star. As a result, the tournament is sometimes also called the "The Goedendag Trophy".


Note: In case of a draw, most of the times penalties decided the winner, however in 1991 the game ended in a 1-1 draw and no winner was declared.
