Grand master of the event, with nine victories on the clock, including seven consecutive between 2013 and 2019), the Paris Saint Germain won the first edition in 1995 against FC Nantes, at the end of the penalty shootout (2-2, 6 tab to 5), at the Francis-Le-Blé stadium in Brest.

The most prolific match in goal was won in Tangier, Morocco, by Olympique de Marseille in 2011 ahead of Lille (5-4).
