The UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (called European Cup Winners' Cup prior to 1994–95) was a seasonal association football competition contested between member associations of European football's governing body, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). It was open to winners of domestic cup winners, such as the English FA Cup champions. Throughout its 39-year history, the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup was always a knock-out tournament with two-legged home and away ties until the single match final staged at a neutral venue, the only exception to this being the two-legged final in the competition's first year. The first competition was won by Fiorentina, from Italy, who defeated Scotland's Rangers 4–1 over two legs to win the 1961 final. The competition was abolished in 1999; Italian team Lazio were the last team to win the competition when they beat Mallorca 2–1.[1]

Barcelona are the most successful club in the competition's history, having won it on four occasions,[1] followed by Anderlecht (Belgium), Milan (Italy), Chelsea (England) and Dynamo Kyiv (USSR / Ukraine) with two victories each. Barcelona, Atlético Madrid, Real Madrid (all from Spain), Anderlecht (Belgium), Rangers (Scotland), Arsenal (England) and Rapid Wien (Austria) hold the record for being runners-up the most times, with each team losing the final twice. Teams from England have won the competition the most, with teams from the country winning the competition eight times.[2]
