List of teams to have won the three main European club competitions

To date, only four teams have won all three main UEFA club competitions (UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and UEFA Europa League):[1][2]

Juventus has received, in recognition of being the first side in European football history to win all three major UEFA club competitions,[4] The UEFA Plaque from the UEFA in 1988.[5]

Several Clubs have won two out of three of these competitions; of these clubs Real Madrid, Liverpool, Inter Milan, Porto, Feyenoord, and PSV Eindhoven cannot win all three as they have not won the now defunct UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. Anderlecht, Valencia, Tottenham Hotspur, Atlético Madrid, and Parma require a UEFA Champions League win to complete the set. AC Milan, Barcelona, Manchester United, Hamburg, and Borussia Dortmund require a UEFA Europa League win to complete the set.

List of teams to have won all international club competitions

Juventus was the first club in association football history—and remains the only at present—to have won all possible official continental tournaments and the world champions title.[6][7][8]
