By country[edit]

The UEFA Cup replaced the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in the 1971–72 season, so the Fairs Cup is not considered a UEFA competition, and hence clubs' records in the Fairs Cup are not considered part of their European record.[2]

The following table lists countries by number of winners and runner-up in the UEFA Cup and Europa League. Italy is leading the field with nine titles, followed by Spain and England with seven titles each, and Germany with six titles; 29 of 42 editions were won by teams from these four countries. Teams from a total of 11 countries have won the competition.

The 1980 UEFA Cup saw four Bundesliga teams (i.e., Bayern Munich, Eintracht Frankfurt, Borussia Mönchengladbach, and VfB Stuttgart) make up all of the semi-finals competitors — a unique record for one country. Frankfurt beat Mönchengladbach in the final.

Undefeated champions[edit]

Consecutive wins[edit]

Miscellaneous records[edit]

  • Benfica has the most goals scored and the most wins in Europa League, and is the only team to have reached the final unbeaten.[3]
  • Only four clubs have won the treble of their national league championship, domestic cup competition and the UEFA Cup all in same season. They are:
  • Until 1997, the UEFA Cup was the only European club competition which routinely allocated multiple entrants to many countries. This has led to several finals featuring two clubs from the same country:
Season Country  
1971–72 England Tottenham Hotspur v Wolverhampton Wanderers
1979–80 West Germany Eintracht Frankfurt v Borussia Mönchengladbach
1989–90 Italy Juventus v Fiorentina
1990–91 Italy Internazionale v Roma
1994–95 Italy Parma v Juventus
1997–98 Italy Internazionale v Lazio
2006–07 Spain Espanyol v Sevilla
2010–11 Portugal Porto v Braga
2011–12 Spain Athletic Bilbao v Atlético Madrid
  • During the 1979–80 season, West Germany had five entrants including cup holders Borussia Mönchengladbach. All five managed to reach the quarter-final stage and both semi-finals ended up being all West German affairs. Ultimately, Eintracht Frankfurt defeated Borussia Mönchengladbach in the final. No West German club that season was eliminated by a non-German club.
  • During the 1997–98 season, France had seven entrants: Strasbourg as winner of French Coupe de la Ligue, Metz as runner-up of French Coupe de la Ligue, Nantes Atlantique as 3rd placed team from French Division 1, FC Girondins de Bordeaux as 4th placed team from French Division 1, and also Auxerre, Bastia & Lyon as 1997 UEFA Intertoto Cup Group winners. Nevertheless, only one, AJ Auxerre, reach the quarter-final stage, where was eliminated by Lazio.
  • The record number of consecutive participations in the UEFA Cup/Europa League is 19 by Club Brugge. All teams to play at least six consecutive seasons (including eliminations in the qualifying rounds of the tournament proper) are–:
Entries Club Seasons
19 Club Brugge 1996/97–present
9 PAOK 1997/98–2005/06
8 Celtic 1996/97–2003/04
8 Red Star Belgrade 1998/99–2005/06
8 CSKA Sofia 1998/99–2005/06
8 Grazer 1998/99–2005/06
8 Shakhtar Donetsk 1998/99–2005/06
8 Slavia Prague 1998/99–2005/06
7 PSV 1979/80–1985/86
7 Spartak Moscow 1981/82–1987/88
7 Sporting CP 1988/89–1994/95
7 Parma 1998/99–2004/05
7 Brøndby 1999/00–2005/06
7 Vaduz 1999/00–2005/06
6 Köln 1971/72–1976/77
6 Grasshopper 1972/73–1977/78
6 Dundee United 1977/78–1982/83
6 Werder Bremen 1982/83–1987/88
6 Internazionale 1983/84–1988/89
6 Rangers 1997/98–2002/03
6 Ventspils 2000/01–2005/06
6 Wisła Kraków 2000/01–2005/06
  • Entering both the Champions League and/or its qualifying rounds and the UEFA Cup in the same season has now become so common that a separate statistic of all clubs having done so in three or more consecutive seasons may be of interest (the means of entering the UEFA Cup is indicated in the last column in chronological order, G denoting group stage, q denoting qualifying round):
Entries Club Seasons Stages
6 Shakhtar Donetsk 2000/01–2005/06 GqqqGq
3 Rangers 1999/00–2001/02 GGq
3 Celtic 2000/01–2003/04 GqG

3 Club Brugge 2002/03–2004/05 qGq
3 Wisła Kraków 2003/04–2005/06 qqq
  • Several times, winning the UEFA Cup was a club's only chance to qualify for European competition in the next season. A win by such a mid-table (and non-domestic-cup-winning) club then led to an extra place in the UEFA Cup for the country in question. The following clubs managed to save their season by winning the UEFA Cup:
Season Club Country Domestic position
1971/72 Tottenham Hotspur England 6th
1978/79 Borussia Mönchengladbach West Germany 10th
1979/80 Eintracht Frankfurt West Germany 9th
1983/84 Tottenham Hotspur England 8th
1987/88 Bayer Leverkusen West Germany 8th
1993/94 Internazionale Italy 13th
1996/97 Schalke Germany 12th
  • Espanyol (in 2006–07) is the only team to have not lost a single match in a season but fail to win the UEFA Cup (only lost to Sevilla on penalties in the final).
