The 1962 Intercontinental Cup was a football tie held over two legs between Brazilian club Santos, winners of the 1962 Copa Libertadores, and Portuguese club Benfica, winners of the 1961–62 European Cup. Santos won the Intercontinental Cup for the first time.[1]

The tie is remembered as pitching Brazilian player Pelé against Portuguese player Eusébio, two of the leading players of the 1960s, who played against each other on only three occasions.[2] Pelé considered the second leg, Santos' 5–2 win in Lisbon, in which he scored a hat-trick, to be the greatest performance of his career.[3][4][5]

In 2017 FIFA Council recognised all the trophy winners as club world champions with the same title to the FIFA Club World Cup winners, then as official[6][7] "world champions" FIFA.[8][9][10][11]
