List of UEFA club competition winners

Ajax's international trophies displayed in the club's museum. The Dutch are one of five teams to have won UEFA's three main club competitions: European Cup/Champions League (4), Cup Winners' Cup (1) and UEFA Cup (1).

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) is the governing body for association football in Europe. It organises three club competitions: the UEFA Champions League (formerly European Cup), the UEFA Europa League (formerly UEFA Cup) and the UEFA Super Cup. UEFA was also responsible for the Cup Winners' Cup and the Intertoto Cup, until their discontinuation in 1999 and 2008, respectively. Together with the Confederación Sudamericana de Fútbol (CONMEBOL), it also organised the Intercontinental Cup, which was last held in 2004, before its replacement by FIFA's Club World Cup.

Spanish side Real Madrid have won a record total of 22 titles in UEFA competitions, five more than Milan (Italy). The only team to have won every UEFA club competition is Juventus (Italy). They received The UEFA Plaque on 12 July 1988, in recognition of winning the three seasonal confederation trophies – UEFA Cup in 1977, Cup Winners' Cup in 1984, and European Cup in 1985.[1] Juventus then won their first Super Cup in 1984, their first Intercontinental Cup in 1985, and the Intertoto Cup in 1999.[2]

Spanish clubs have won the most titles (60), ahead of clubs from Italy (48) and England (43). Italy is the only country in European football history whose clubs won the three main competitions in the same season: in 1989–90, Milan retained the European Cup, Sampdoria won the Cup Winners' Cup, and Juventus secured the UEFA Cup.[3]

While the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup is considered to be the predecessor of the UEFA Cup, it is not officially recognised by UEFA and therefore successes in this competition are not included in this list.[4] Also excluded are the unofficial 1972 European Super Cup and the Club World Cup, a FIFA competition.[5]

WinnersEdit

By clubEdit

Real Madrid hold the record for the most overall titles with 22, followed by Milan's 17 titles.[6][7] Spanish teams hold the record for the most wins in each of the three main UEFA club competitions: Real Madrid, with thirteen European Cup/UEFA Champions League titles; Sevilla, with five UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League titles; and Barcelona, with four Cup Winners' Cup titles. Milan share the most Super Cup wins (five) with Barcelona, and the most Intercontinental Cup wins (three) with Real Madrid. German clubs Hamburg, Schalke 04 and Stuttgart, and Spanish club Villarreal are the record holders by titles won in the UEFA Intertoto Cup (twice each).

Juventus, Ajax, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Manchester United are the only teams to have won all of UEFA's three main club competitions (European Cup/UEFA Champions League, Cup Winners' Cup, UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League). However, Juventus is the only team to have won every UEFA club competition, which additionally includes the Super Cup, the Intertoto Cup, and the Intercontinental Cup.[8]

The following table lists all the clubs that have won at least one UEFA club competition, and is updated as of 14 August 2019 (in chronological order).
