The Inter Service Championships have been contested each year since 1919 with the exception of the Second World War years. The overall winners of the Inter Service Championships will receive the “Constantinople Cup”. Members of the United Services Club Constantinople, in Turkey, better known today as Istanbul, presented the Cup on 21 November 1922, for Inter Services Boxing. However in January 1924 the Constantinople Cup was re- designated for Inter Services Football.
The competition is competed for by each Service at Men's Senior, Men's U23 and Ladies Representative team level.
In 2014 the RAF Men's Senior Representative team created history by winning the Constantinople Cup for a record 7th consecutive season.
