SPANISH CUP SEARCHABLE DATABASE (1933-2017)
(Next update: 2018 edition)
I'm presenting here a very powerful and complete searchable database containing
all the 1,500 games played in the Spanish Basketball
Cup (present King's Cup) from its inception in 1933 to edition
2017. You will be able to make queries about editions, years, rounds,
teams, and point difference, either specifically or by combining different
As everywhere in this website, clubs are presented in their original official
name. But don't worry: as input for the search box, you can also use plain
text (with no accents or especial diacritics), truncated
forms (first, middle, or last letters of the team's name), or localized
spellings (the common name of the team in English or Spanish), and
the database will generate the desired results in most cases. However, due
to the large amount of teams and some similarities between their names, the
more accurate your search input is, the better.
INSTRUCTIONS AND TIPS
The use of this database is very easy and intuitive: simply specify or combine
the desired data, and the program will generate the list of games that matches
those criteria. Remember that you don't have to fill
all the fields and also that your query should be logical. Following
is a brief introduction and explanation of the different searchable fields:
1) EDITION. Select the first and the last editions for the
period containing your search. If you only select "edition from"
or "edition to," the search will include, respectively, all the
competitions beginning or ending in that year.
2) YEAR. The use of this field is similar to that of EDITION
above, and it further specifies the year in which a game was played (remember
that some editions can span over two years).
3) ROUND. If you want to refine your search even more, select
the round you wish to retrieve. Because not all the editions of the Spanish
Cup had the same competition format, the menu simply lists all the different
4) MATCH. There are two search options to retrieve games
between teams: a) Data input: The search
box will accept almost any combination of plain text, truncated forms, or
localized spellings, as long as it uniquelly identifies a specific team; by
default, the query under this option is reversible,
so the match "Team A" vs. "Team B" will generate games
"Team A-Team B" (Team A plays home) and "Team B-Team A"
(Team A plays away). If you want to restrict the search to "home"
or "away" games only, please mark the checkbox "Fixed order
of games." Another advantage of this search method is that it generates
the full historical record of a team (including its name changes). b) Select
menu: The official name of the teams can be selected in this drop
down menu; although it's simple, this option can only generate the fixed order
of games specified in the search criteria (that is, "Team A" vs.
"Team B," but not the corresponding "Team B" vs. "Team
A"), but it shows the name changes of the selected teams.
5) POINT DIFFERENCE. This field lists all the basket average
points in the Spanish Cup. Because the program can't attach individual scores
to specific teams, it can't decide who's the winner and who's the loser in
a match-up, just the final difference. After the list of games is generated,
please note the following additional abbreviations attached to some scores,
which don't alter them in any way: v.t. (victoria técnica
By combining these basic fields, you can make countless queries according
to your specific interest. After you complete your query, the resulting match
list is displayed in the following ascendent order: 1) by
season; 2) by year; 3) by
