Note that no fewer than 4 different countries on 3 continents had repeated finals with the same winners in every year from 1987 to 1989. The Namibian Christmas Cup (MTC Kersfeesbekertoernooi), which was played as a league cup tournament (all 16 top level clubs enter) has seen 4 editions from 2001 to 2004; all four featured Black Africa and Civics in the final, and all four finals were won by Black Africa. The Israeli State Cup for women saw six consecutive finals between Maccabi Holon and ASA Tel-Aviv (2004-2009), all won by Maccabi Holon.

Prior to their 'feat', this sad record was shared by USM Alger, who appeared in five consecutive Algerian cup finals from 1969 to 1973 and lost all of them, and Al-Ramtha, who did the same in Jordan from 1993 to 1997.

The 1940 Romanian final went to three replays: Rapid Bucuresti 2-2, 4-4, 2-2, 2-1 Venus Bucuresti The first match was played on April 30, 1940, the last on November 8 - requiring more than half a year to determine the winners. Iuliu Baratky of Rapid scored in all four matches (twice in the third). If the above is a record for Europe, the third edition of the Singapore Amateur Football Association Challenge Cup, played in 1894, saw double the number of replays: six, and even after the last match the winners had not been determined. Even more intriguingly, there was only one 'club' in the final, a military unit: the 10th Lincolnshire Regiment, which had entered two teams in the tournament, in which five teams played: Final [Sep 7] 10th Lincolnshire Regiment I 0-0 10th Lincolnshire Regiment II Final Replay [Sep 10] 10th Lincolnshire Regiment I 0-0 10th Lincolnshire Regiment II [aet (2x5 mins)] Final Second Replay [Sep 14] 10th Lincolnshire Regiment I 2-2 10th Lincolnshire Regiment II [aet (2x5 mins)] Final Third Replay [Sep 21] 10th Lincolnshire Regiment I 1-1 10th Lincolnshire Regiment II [aet (2x5 mins)] Final Fourth Replay [Oct 11] 10th Lincolnshire Regiment I 0-0 10th Lincolnshire Regiment II Final Fifth Replay [Oct 29] 10th Lincolnshire Regiment I 1-1 10th Lincolnshire Regiment II Final Sixth Replay [Nov ?] 10th Lincolnshire Regiment I drw 10th Lincolnshire Regiment II NB: date and score of the last match unknown; all finals played over 2x30 minutes, with most but possibly not all replays going to extra time. In order to settle the issue, on November 28, 1894, the 22 names of the players from both teams were put into a hat, from which 11 names were drawn to receive the available medals; among the 11 winners, 3 were from the first team and 8 from the second.
Roma beat all Italian European Cup winners of 1989/90 during their 1990/91 campaign to win the Coppa Italia: QF: Roma 1-1 2-0 Juventus (UEFA Cup) SF: Milan (CC) 0-0 0-1 Roma F: Roma 3-1 1-1 Sampdoria (CWC) [Milan also won the Intercontinental Cup and the Super Cup in both 1989/90 and 1990/91, so Roma eliminated all European holders of international cups.] Amateur club Eintracht Trier beat both German winners of European silverware in 1996/97 during their campaign in the 1997/98 DFB-Pokal: 1: Eintracht Trier 1-0 Schalke 04 (UEFA Cup) 2: Eintracht Trier 2-1 Borussia Dortmund (CC) FC Sion won their first thirteen Swiss Cup Finals: in 1965, 1974, 1980, 1982, 1986, 1991, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2006, 2009, 2011 and 2015; they lost their fourteenth final in 2017 (against FC Basel). Leeds United and Cardiff City met in the third round of the FA Cup in three consecutive seasons: 1955/56, 1956/57, and 1957/58. Not only did Cardiff on each of these occasions eliminate Leeds in Leeds - they also did it by the identical 2-1 scoreline on all three occasions!
 This includes both the "Campeonato de Portugal" from 1921/22 to 1937/38 and its successor tournament "Taça de Portugal" which was held since 1938/39 season.  This includes the English Cup won by Cardiff City in 1926/27 as well as 22 Welsh cups.  The totals for Levski and CSKA contain the Soviet Army cups won up to and including 1982; Levski won 13 of those (and 3 after 1981), CSKA 9 (and 4 after 1981). Of the 16 finals between the two teams, 7 were for the Soviet Army Cup (up to 1982), Levski winning 4, CSKA 3; the 1982 final for the Cup of Bulgaria (won by Levski) is not included as the tournament was still secondary to the Soviet Army Cup that year. The 1985 final between the two teams (CSKA winning 2-1) was first declared void but later returned to CSKA. Levski's total includes the 1942 Tzar's Cup but not the 1982 Cup of Bulgaria (secondary to the Soviet Army Cup); CSKA's total does not included the 4-team Cup of Bulgaria 1981 (secondary to the Soviet Army Cup).  Totals include Stredoceský pohár, Ceský pohár 1939-45, Czechoslovak cups 1946-93, Czech cups since 1994.

Slavia won the Stredoceský pohár 8 times, Ceský pohár 2 times during the war, 7 Czech cups. Of the 11 finals between the two, 7 were for the Stredoceský pohár, 3 for the Ceský pohár. The two teams were also to meet in the 1937 final for the Stredoceský pohár, which was never played (but included as one of the ten finals to be played between the two). Finally, Sparta and Slavia also met each other 3 times in the Czech cup final when it served as a semifinal for the Czechoslovak cup; of those, Sparta won 2, Slavia 1.  The 1988 final was stopped at 1-1 just before the end, after Steaua had left the field as protest to having a goal disallowed. The match was later awarded 2-1 to Steaua, but after the revolution of 1989 Steaua gave the cup to Dinamo. However, according to the official records of the FRF, the cup is Steaua's, so it is included in their total, as is the 2020 edition won as FCSB.  Total for ASC Diaraf includes that of Foyer France.  Dinamo Zagreb and Hajduk Split now are in the Croatian league after Yugoslavia broke up. Hajduk won 9 Yugoslav and 8 Croatian cups, Dinamo 7 Yugoslav and 16 Croatian ones (including the one won in 1941 by Gradjanski). They played each other 4 times in the Yugoslav cup final (each winning 2) and 7 times in the Croatian cup final (4 by Dinamo, 3 won by Hajduk).  The 1962 final between Olympiakos and Panathinaikos was abandoned. The 1964 semifinal between the same teams also was abandoned, leaving AEK as only finalists and interrupting the run of Olympiakos between 1956 and 1966 as Cup finalists, as well as their run of seven consecutive wins between 1957 and 1965 (the 1964 Cup for AEK is not always listed). (Details on Olympiakos' run.)  Celtic appeared in 14 consecutive finals of the Scottish League Cup between 1965 and 1978.  The 1909 Cup was withheld after riots following the draw between Celtic and Rangers in the replay. Celtic and Rangers met each other another 12 times in the final of the Scottish League Cup, Rangers winning 8, Celtic 4.  Amateure are now known as Austria Wien.

Dinamo Kyiv won 9 Soviet Cups and 13 Ukrainian Cups. Shakhtar Donetsk won 4 Soviet Cups and 13 Ukrainian Cups.  Two cups (1928 and 1929) were shared.  Shelbourne won 3 Irish Cups before the split between Northern Ireland and the Republic, and 7 Cups in Ireland.  This includes the Kings Cup competition from 1956/57 until 1989/90 and the Crown Prince Cup from 1990/91 to 2012/13 and the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Champions Cup since; Al-Ahli won 10 Kings Cups, 3 Crown Prince Cups and 1 Two Holy Mosques Cup in the relevant periods, Al-Hilal 6 Kings Cup, 11 Crown Prince Cups and 4 Two Holy Mosques Cups, and Al-Ittihad 6 Kings Cups, 4 Crown Prince Cups and 1 Two Holy Mosques Cups; in addition Al-Ittihad won 4 Crown Prince Cups prior to 1990 or since 2013 (when it was a secondary cup tournament), Al-Ahli 3 and Al-Hilal 2.  South African records include the NPSL 1971-1984 and the NSL/PSL since the 1985 season.  Dinamo Tbilisi won 2 Soviet Cups and 13 Georgian Cups.  FC Sion played 13 Swiss cup finals up to and including 2015 and won them all; they lost their 14th final in 2017.  Two cups (1943 and 1958) were shared between Al-Ahly and Zamalek.  One cup (1982) was shared between Mohammedan and Abahani while the 1984 final between the two was abandoned due to riots and the cup not awarded.  Slovan won 5 cups in Czechoslovakia and 10 in Slovakia.  Includes 6 cups won under their former name Conakry I; without the 7 cups won by the 1e arrondissement (1), 2e arrondissement (1), and 3e arrondissement (5) into which Conakry I was split in 1968/69.  Includes 5 cups won as Army and 5 won as Mechal.  Al-Foutoua not only won four consecutive finals between 1988 and 1991 but had also lost four consecutive finals between 1979 and 1983!  Refers to the FA Cup and not the Senior Shield, which South China won 31 times (9 before World War II and 22 since).  While the company owning Rangers FC was liquidated in 2012, it had previously sold the club to another company, thus enabling the club, which had to restart at the fourth domestic league level, to retain its old records.
