Double (association football)
The Double, in association football, is the achievement of winning a country's top tier division and its primary cup competition in the same season. The lists in this article examine this definition of a double, while derivative sections examine much less frequent, continental instances. The Double can also mean beating a team both home and away in the same league season, a feat often noted as doing the double over a particular opponent.
The first club to achieve a double was Preston North End in 1889, winning the FA Cup and The Football League in the inaugural season of the league.
The team that holds the record for the most doubles is Linfield of Northern Ireland, with a total of 25.

In Sweden, six teams have won the Double of the Swedish championship and the Svenska Cupen.
The Svenska Cupen was not introduced until the 1941 season, while Allsvenskan started for the 1923–24 season. Svenska Cupen was also not played between 1954 and 1966. It should also be considered that winning Allsvenskan did not grant the title of Swedish champions until 1931 and between 1982 and 1992 when the title was given to the winner of other cup tournaments that were organized at the end of the league season. The number of doubles for IFK Göteborg and Malmö FF are affected by this. IFK Göteborg won the Swedish Championship together with Svenska Cupen in one additional season to the table below, they won the two titles in 1983, a year when they did not win Allsvenskan. Additionally while Malmö won Allsvenskan in 1989, they were not Swedish Championships for that season as they did not win the play-off following the ordinary league play. All other teams in the table below won the Swedish Championship in their double-winning seasons. The latest club to win a double is AIK who completed the feat in 2009. In 1982, IFK Göteborg also managed to combine its double with winning the UEFA Cup.

There is no currently sanctioned National Cup in the United States for women, so the only way to achieve the Double in the United States is through a league double (winning the Shield or its equivalent for the best regular-season record, and the league championship).
The Women's United Soccer Association did not have formal recognition of the team with the best regular season record, but during the 2002 WUSA season, the Carolina Courage had the best regular season record and won the Founder's Cup, the WUSA Championship Trophy.
Women's Professional Soccer, which operated from 2009 to 2011, had one club win both the regular season championship and the WPS Championship (the latter through the playoffs): During the 2011 Women's Professional Soccer season, the Western New York Flash had the best regular season record, and won in the Championship match on 27 August 2011 to win the WPS Championship and the double.
The National Women's Soccer League did not see a double in its first five seasons (2013–2017). However, in both its 2018 and 2019 seasons, the North Carolina Courage won both the NWSL Shield (awarded to the team with the best regular-season record) and the NWSL Championship (earned by winning in the NWSL Playoffs).

Since the formation of the A-League in 2004, a double could be accomplished by winning the Premiership in the regular league season and the Championship in the finals series. The feat of winning the minor premiership and the finals during the NSL era was not officially recognised as a 'double'.

From 1993 to 2003, the league champions were determined by a knockout tournament between the top-finishing teams at the end of the season, the team that finished in first place during the league phase of the season were not officially awarded a title.
From 2003, the league system in the country was drastically restructured and saw the National Soccer League disband, with its teams now competing on a regional basis. The New Zealand Football Championship was formed and became the country's national league, exclusively run for franchised teams as opposed to the traditional clubs that competed in the National Soccer League.
As with most franchise leagues, the Football Championship wass split into two phases; the Premiership during the regular season and the Championship during the finals phase, which was contested between the top four-placed teams of the Premiership phase. The franchises were ineligible to participate in the Chatham Cup. From 2021 onwards this system was replaced by the New Zealand National League, with the Chatham Cup as its primary cup, and the fanchises were disbanded.

Due to the sporadic nature of football competitions in the country, with a league not in place until the 21st century, and only the United Football League (UFL) to last more than a season, and a national cup competition not being consistently held annually, achieving a double has been mostly impossible until recently. The establishment of the UFL in 2009 led to annual league and cup tournaments. The institution of the PFF National Men's Club Championship (the national cup) in 2011 (next held in 2013) after years of dormancy meant that a domestic treble could now be contested. In 2013, a super cup is expected to be played, paving the way for a UFL treble.
During the existence of the UFL from 2009 to 2016, a league double has been achieved thrice. A domestic double (a title each from the UFL and the PFF) or a domestic treble (a UFL double and a PFF title) has not been won.

League and League Cup Double
A rarer (though less coveted) domestic double is that of winning the league championship and the League Cup. In many leagues, this cannot be done as there is no second domestic cup competition (such as in Italy and the Netherlands) or it has been disbanded (such as in Spain and Denmark). The format of league cups and the number of participating teams can vary enormously from one country to another. In the case of Germany, the DFB-Ligapokal was played in the summer months prior to the Bundesliga and therefore was won in the preceding calendar year to the title win.

Doubles in lower divisions
In many countries, knock-out competitions exclusive to clubs outside the top division(s) also exist. This gives lower ranked clubs a chance to win a double. Examples include:
A Trans-state double occurs when a club wins a league and a cup which technically belong to two different countries and different associations. This usually happens as a result of a change in the political situation in the club's home country, or if the club has expatriated and is eligible to participate in the competitions of its native country and its adopted one.

In the same spirit as the European treble, the European double consists of winning the top tier European tournament (currently the UEFA Champions League) and domestic league title in a single season or calendar year. This has been achieved on 29 occasions by 15 clubs from 56 European competitions. Barcelona has achieved this on the most occasions (5). Ajax and Real Madrid are the only teams that have successfully defended a European double. José Mourinho has the unique distinction of being the only manager to achieve this double with two different clubs, having done so with Porto (2004) and Internazionale (2010).

The unbeaten double
In 1994–95, Louis van Gaal's Ajax, with players such as Jari Litmanen, Patrick Kluivert, Marc Overmars, Finidi George, Nwankwo Kanu, Frank de Boer, Ronald de Boer, Edgar Davids, Clarence Seedorf, Winston Bogarde, Michael Reiziger and Edwin van der Sar, succeeded an unbeaten double, winning the Dutch Eredivisie with a 27–7–0 record and the UEFA Champions League with a 7–4–0 record. Van Gaal's dream team was the only club to achieve a European double with no defeats.
League and Europa League double
The UEFA Europa League (formerly the UEFA Cup), with a domestic league title win, offers the chance for a club to win a lesser European double; but arguably a more prestigious achievement than a domestic double. This has been completed on fourteen occasions.
|IFK Göteborg||Sweden||2||1982 (part of a treble), 1987[g]|
|Porto||Portugal||2||2003, 2011 (both part of a treble)|
|Galatasaray||Turkey||1||2000 (part of a treble)|
|Zenit Saint Petersburg||Russia||1||2008|
g In 1987, Göteborg finished third in the Allsvenskan. At this time, the title was decided by a play-off between the top four teams. They defeated first placed Malmö FF in the play-off final.
League and Cup Winners' Cup double
Similarly, there were six occasions of clubs winning their League and the now defunct UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (CWC). No club ever won the CWC as part of a recognised treble. In the case of 1. FC Magdeburg and Dynamo Kyiv, it is also worth noting that the domestic championships they won are also now disbanded, due to German reunification and the dissolution of the Soviet Union respectively.

Continental doubles outside of Europe
Outside Europe, the continental double might be won in a calendar year rather than a single season.
There are various possible combinations of winning two knock-out competitions.
Domestic cup double
A Domestic cup double consists of winning both domestic cup competitions in a single season or calendar year (for seasons when this double was won in conjunction with the league title, see domestic treble). Examples include:
European cup double
There have been several occasions when a club has won its association's cup or league cup and a UEFA trophy but not its League title. For European cup doubles won in conjunction with the league title, see the treble.
L A unique cup treble.
Continental cup doubles outside of Europe
|Domestic Cup(s) Won||Continental Trophy||Year(s) won|
|Zamalek||Egypt||1||Egypt Cup||CAF Confederation Cup||2019|
|Palmeiras||Brazil||1||Copa do Brasil||Copa Libertadores||2020|
|Flamengo||Brazil||1||Copa do Brasil||Copa Libertadores||2022|
A combination of domestic league or cup and a lesser domestic or continental trophy may be won in the same season. Examples include (this list does not include doubles achieved as part of a treble):
- Barcelona's 1960 team won both La Liga and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.
- Zaragoza won an Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and Copa del Rey double in the 1963–64 season.
- Leeds United were the first English team to win a double involving European and domestic trophies. It was in 1968 when Leeds won the Football League Cup and Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.
- Dinamo Tbilisi won the Georgian Cup and CIS Cup in 2004.
- Espanyol won the Copa del Rey and Copa Catalunya in 2006. This would not normally be counted as a domestic cup double comparable to those mentioned above, as the latter competition is not nationwide or league-wide.
- Copenhagen won the Danish Superliga and the pan-Scandinavian Royal League in 2006.
- FBK Kaunas won the Lithuanian Football Cup and Baltic League in 2008.
- Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya won the Iraq FA Cup and AFC Cup in 2016.
- Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya won the Iraqi Premier League and AFC Cup in 2017.
- Mumbai City won the ISL Championship and ISL Premiership in the 2020–21 season.
A national team’s continental championship is not held in the same year as the FIFA World Cup (although the Africa Cup of Nations was held in the same year as the World Cup up until 2010), but one which wins both titles consecutively could be said to have "done the double".

Double winning managers
- As manager of Preston North End in 1888–89, William Sudell won the inaugural First Division title, going unbeaten in the league (22 games), and won the FA Cup without conceding a goal in that competition.
- Jock Stein won the double on nine occasions with Celtic between 1967 and 1977: four doubles of the Scottish league championship and the Scottish Cup, three doubles of the Scottish league championship and the Scottish League Cup and two Trebles.
- Sir Alex Ferguson won the double on four occasions; with Aberdeen in 1983–84, and with Manchester United in 1993–94, 1995–96 and 1998–99. This achievement makes him the only manager to win the double on both sides of the Anglo-Scottish border.
- Sven-Göran Eriksson is the only manager to win a domestic double in three different countries, having done so in Sweden, Portugal and Italy with IFK Göteborg (1981–82), Benfica (1982–83) and Lazio (1999–2000) respectively. This included back-to-back double wins in separate countries.
- Louis van Gaal won the double with Barcelona in 1997–98 and Bayern Munich in 2009–10, subsequent to his undefeated European Double with Ajax in 1994–95.
- Massimiliano Allegri became the first manager in Italy to win the double four consecutive times, in 2014–15, 2015–16, 2016–17 and 2017–18, all with Juventus.
