List of UEFA club competition winners
The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) is the governing body for association football in Europe. It currently organizes three club competitions: the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Europa League 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 confederation club competition is Juventus of Italy. They received The UEFA Plaque on 12 July 1988, in recognition of winning the three seasonal confederation trophies (European Champion Clubs' Cup, Cup Winners' Cup and UEFA Cup). Juventus won the Super Cup for the first time in 1984, its first Intercontinental Cup in 1985 and the Intertoto Cup in 1999. Their Italian rivals, Milan, are the club with the most titles in European competitions, having won a total of 17 titles. Spanish club Real Madrid – which holds the record for the most European Champion Clubs' Cup victories – is the second most successful club, with 16 titles, while Barcelona is third, with 12 titles. Italian and Spanish clubs are the most successful, having each won 48 titles. English clubs are third with 40.
While the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup is considered to be the predecessor to the UEFA Cup, UEFA does not recognize it officially, 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.
