List of UEFA club competition winners
The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) is the governing body for association football in Europe. It organizes 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 Confederación Sudamericana de Fútbol (CONMEBOL), it also organized the Intercontinental Cup, which was last held in 2004, before its replacement by FIFA's Club World Cup.
The only team to have won every UEFA club competition is Juventus of 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 Champion Clubs' Cup in 1985). Juventus won the Super Cup for the first time in 1984, its first Intercontinental Cup in 1985, and the Intertoto Cup in 1999. Another Italian side, Milan, have won a total of 17 titles in UEFA competitions, a record shared with Spain's Real Madrid. Their Spanish rivals, Barcelona, are third with 12 UEFA competition titles. Overall, Spanish clubs have won the most titles (49), ranking above Italian and English clubs, which have 48 and 39 titles, respectively.
While the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup is considered to be the predecessor of the UEFA Cup, it is not officially recognized by UEFA and therefore successes in this competition are not included in this list. Also excluded are the unofficial 1972 European Super Cup, and the Club World Cup, a FIFA competition.
