Without looking it up, I'd imagine a lot of the winners would have ended up in the European Cup/CL or UEFA Cup the following season via league position. I must say, as a kid I used to enjoy the four finals being on consecutive Wednesday nights.

Anderlecht seemed to be in final every year when I was a nipper!

Went to Old Trafford soon after moving to England for second leg of tie v A Madrid. United were holders at the time but had lost the first leg 3 or 4 nil so bit of a dud tie. My first corporate hospitality freebie.

Cup Winners Cup was seen as more prestigious than Uefa Cup so Winners would defend title if they didn’t qualify for European Cup/Champions League. Anderlecht, Athletico Madrid, Fiorentina, AC Milan, Ajax, Parma, PSG and Aresenal all lost the final the year after winning the competition.

It was also the easiest of the UEFA competitions to understand the qualification for. Win your domestic cup or else finish up as runners up to a team that done the double or else qualify as defending champions. A shame they done away with it as it was all to do with expansion of the champions league for monetary reasons. English teams done very well in it

Well before the era of prawn sandwiches Earl - buffet and rake of pints in hotel before the game and a few afterwards. No stadium hospitality back then!

Newport town with John Aldridge made the quarter finals in 1981 having won the Welsh cup and lost to eastern German side Carl Zeiss Jena ? 3-2 on agg, same German team lost the final to Dinamo Tblisi who earlier in the comp put out West ham with 95,000 at the home game of that fixture in Georgia.
