Treble (association football)

  (Redirected from The treble)

FC Barcelona are the only European team in football history to win a continental treble twice, in 2008–09 and in 2014–15 (pictured).

A treble in association football is achieved when a club team wins three trophies in a single season. A continental treble[1] involves winning the club's national league competition, main national cup competition and a continental trophy. A domestic treble involves winning three national competitions—normally the league title, the primary cup competition and one secondary competition. [2][3]

Continental treblesEdit

This list includes clubs who have won their country's top-tier league and the primary cup competition (the double), in addition to the major continental tournament, all within a single season. This was first achieved in 1967 by Celtic, winning the Scottish Football League, Scottish Cup and European Cup.

In total, seven European clubs have achieved the feat since 1967.[4] Spanish club Barcelona is the only club to have won this treble twice.[5][6] Cruz Azul is the only Mexican team to have won an international treble, having achieved it twice in 1969 and 1997.[7]
