AGC Bologna

The 1932 season of the Mitropa Cup football club tournament was won by an Italian club for the first time. The winners were AGC Bologna, who defeated the holders First Vienna in the semi-finals, and then won by default without the final being played. Juventus FC and Slavia Prague, who contested the other semi-final were both disqualified following an invasion of the pitch in Prague, and what has been described as the worst violence ever in the competition.[1] The Slavia goalkeeper, František Plánička, was injured when he was hit by a stone thrown by a spectator.[2]

Despite the violence, Hugo Meisl, president of the Austrian Football Association, described the competition as a doubly valuable public magnet (Diese Mitropa-Cup-Konkurrenz erscheint ein doppelt schätzbarer Magnet für das Publikum zu sein).[1]

This was the sixth edition of the tournament, and the fourth edition in which Italian clubs competed and Yugoslavian clubs did not compete.

Renato Cesarini of Juventus was highest scorer with five goals.

1 The match was abandoned with Juventus leading 2-0; after Slavia had conceded two quick goals in the match and resorted to obstruction and time wasting, fans were incensed to the extent that they started throwing stones on the pitch, one hitting and seriously injuring Slavia goalkeeper Planicka. Slavia walked off and were pinned in their dressing rooms for hours while 1,500 soldiers and policemen formed a cordon. Slavia Prague and Juventus FC were both ejected from the competition.
