The Empire Exhibition Trophy was a football competition held in 1938 in conjunction with the Empire Exhibition, Scotland 1938 in Glasgowmarker. It was held to commemorate the Exhibition, then underway in Bellahouston Parkmarker, and the prize was a solid silver model of the Tait Tower.

Four teams from Scotlandmarker and four from Englandmarker contested the straight knock out competition. Celtic defeated Everton 1–0 in the final, on 10 June 1938, with a goal from Johnny Crum in extra time. The final was watched by a crowd of over 82,000 at Ibrox Parkmarker. This tournament, like the Coronation Cup, was held in very high regard at the time as it gave teams the opportunity to test themselves against teams from other leagues in the days before European football.
