The Aston Villa team of 1897 that won The Double

This is a list of the major honours won by football clubs in England. It lists every English football club to have won any of the three major domestic trophies, in addition to other domestic competitive trophies contested by teams at the elite level, and six major European competitions which have existed at different times,[1] or the two global competitions FIFA has recognised.[2]

These honours consist of the English football championshipThe Football League up to 1992 or Premier League thereafter—the FA Cup, the League Cup, the FA Community Shield, the now-defunct Full Members Cup and English Super Cup for top clubs during the ban from European competition, the Champions League or its predecessor the European Cup, the now-defunct European Cup Winners' Cup, the UEFA Europa League or its predecessors the UEFA Cup and Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, the UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup or its predecessor the Intercontinental Cup.

Competitive football started in England with the FA Cup, the oldest football competition in the world,[3] which was first held in the 1871–72 season; Wanderers beat Royal Engineers 1–0 in the final.[4] League football followed in the subsequent decade when The Football League was founded in 1888, with Preston North End winning the first title.[5][6] The Football League, which was renamed the First Division upon expansion of the league in 1892, remained the highest division of the English football league system until 1992 when the Premier League was founded.[7] The Football League also added a second major cup competition in 1960, when it founded the League Cup, invititation to which is restricted to the 92 members of the league. Manchester United have won a record number of League Championships (20). They also jointly hold the record for FA Cup wins (11) with Arsenal.[8][9][10] Liverpool hold the record number of League Cup titles (8).[11][12]

European competition started in 1955 with the European Cup and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, which was succeeded by the UEFA Cup for the 1971–72 season.[13] The Cup Winners' Cup followed in 1960 but was discontinued in 1999.[14] As of the 2013–14 season, 34 English teams have competed in the three main European competitions, 13 of which have lifted at least one trophy,[15] with five of those winning the European Cup—Aston Villa, Liverpool, Manchester United, Nottingham Forest and Chelsea.[16] Liverpool hold the record for the number of European Cups (5) and UEFA Cups (3). Chelsea are the only English team to win all three major UEFA club competitions (the European Cup/Champions League, the European Cup Winners' Cup, and the UEFA Cup/Europa League)

Intercontinental competition started in 1960 with the Intercontinental Cup, which consisted of a two-legged tie between the European Cup and the South American Copa Libertadores winners from 1960 to 1979. By 1971, European participation in the Intercontinental Cup became a running question, and many European teams withdrew; Liverpool in 1977 and 1978, and Nottingham Forest in 1979.[17] In 1980, it became known as the Toyota Cup, and consisted of a single match played in Japan. The last edition was played in 2004, whereupon it was replaced by the FIFA Club World Cup, a knock-out tournament featuring the champions of all six continental confederations.[18] Manchester United were the first and, as of 2014, the only English team to win either of these competitions, winning the Intercontinental Cup in 1999 and the Club World Cup in 2008.[2]
