Makita International Tournament


Makita International Tournament

The Makita International Tournament was an association football pre-season friendly tournament held annually in England between 1988 and 1994.

Originally called the Wembley International Tournament, and organised by IEP Tournaments, it was first staged in August 1988, with Arsenal beating A.C. Milan in the final. All the matches were held at Wembley Stadium. It gained a sponsor in Makita the following year and the competition renamed accordingly. Typically, it hosted a combination of English and Continental teams, and was held at Wembley until 1991. Thereafter it was held at different venues around the country until the final competition in 1994.
