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

To date, five clubs have won all three main UEFA club competitions, the "European Treble" of European Cup/UEFA Champions League, European/UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, and UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League.[5] Although the Cup Winners' Cup no longer exists, 27 of its former winners could still add wins in the other two competitions to achieve this UEFA treble. Nine of those teams are just one trophy away from the feat; most notably five-time Champions League winners and four-time Cup Winners' Cup holders Barcelona[6][7] and seven-time Champions League winners and two-time Cup Winners' Cup holders Milan, which are one Europa League trophy away from achieving the UEFA treble. Other clubs needing Europa League title to achieve the treble are German clubs Hamburg and Borussia Dortmund; both have only won the European Cup and the Cup Winners' Cup once each. The remaining five clubs need to win the Champions League: Atlético Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur, Anderlecht, Valencia, and Parma.

Upon the commencement of the UEFA Europa Conference League in 2021–22 season, there is a chance for the 32 former winners of the Cup Winners' Cup to win a UEFA quadruple in the future.

Only the first win is shown for any club with multiple wins of the same competition.

Juventus has received the UEFA Plaque from the confederation in 1988, in recognition of being the first side in European football history to win all three major UEFA club competitions,[8][9] and the only one to reach it with the same coach (i.e. Giovanni Trapattoni).

List of teams to have won all UEFA club competitions[edit]

Juventus was the first club – and remains the only one club at present – in association football history to have won all six official confederation tournaments.[10]

All winners from one country[edit]

Before the abolishment of the Cup Winners' Cup in 1999 and the commencement of the Europa Conference League in 2021, only once have three clubs from the same country; Italy in 1989–90, won all three main UEFA club competitions in the same season:[11]

Season Competition Winners

In between, clubs from the same country have won both remaining main UEFA club competitions (Champions League and Europa League) in the same season six times: two Spanish teams in 2005–06, 2013–14, 2014–15, 2015–16, and 2017–18, and two English teams in 2018–19.

All finalists from one country[edit]

The 2018–19 season was the first time that all European finals featured representatives from only one country (England). In the Champions League final, Liverpool defeated Tottenham Hotspur, while Chelsea defeated Arsenal in the Europa League final.[12][13]
