UEFA
UEFA
headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland

UEFA
UEFA
was founded on 15 June 1954 in Basel, Switzerland
Switzerland
after consultation between the Italian, French, and Belgian associations. The European football union began with 25 members; that number doubled by the early 1990s. Until 1959 the main headquarters were located in Paris, and later in Bern. In 1995, UEFA
UEFA
headquarters were transferred to Nyon, Switzerland. UEFA
UEFA
membership coincides for the most part with recognition as a sovereign country in Europe, although there are some exceptions. Some states ( Monaco
Monaco
and Vatican City) are not members. Some UEFA
UEFA
members are not sovereign states, but form part of a larger recognized sovereign state in the context of international law. These include Northern Ireland, Scotland, England
England
and Wales, (Countries of the United Kingdom), Gibraltar
Gibraltar
(British Overseas Territory), the Faroe Islands (autonomous country within Denmark), and Kosovo
Kosovo
(disputed territory and partially recognised state), however in the context of these countries government functions concerning sport tend to be carried at the territorial level coterminous with the UEFA
UEFA
member entity. Some UEFA
UEFA
members are transcontinental states (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Georgia, Israel, Kazakhstan, Turkey
Turkey
and Russia). Countries which had been members of the Asian Football
Football
Confederation were also admitted to the European football association, particularly Israel
Israel
and Kazakhstan. Additionally some UEFA
UEFA
member associations allow teams from outside their association's main territory to take part in their "domestic" competition. AS Monaco, for example, takes part in the French League (though a separate sovereign entity); Welsh clubs Cardiff City, Swansea City and Newport County A.F.C.
Newport County A.F.C.
participate in the English League; Berwick Rangers, situated in England, play in the Scottish Professional Football League
Scottish Professional Football League
and Derry City, situated in Northern Ireland, play in the Republic of Ireland-based League of Ireland.

member countries by club competition entry entitlements, 2009/10

The top-ranked UEFA
UEFA
competition is the UEFA
UEFA
Champions League, which started in the 1992/93 season and gathers the top 1–4 teams of each country's league (the number of teams depend on that country's ranking and can be upgraded or downgraded); this competition was re-structured from a previous one that only gathered the top team of each country (held from 1955–92 and known as the European Champion Clubs' Cup or simply the European Cup). A second, lower-ranked competition is the UEFA
UEFA
Europa League. This competition, for national knockout cup winners and high-placed league teams, was launched by UEFA
UEFA
in 1971 as a successor of both the former UE FA Cup
FA Cup
and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (also begun in 1955). A third competition, the UE FA Cup
FA Cup
Winners' Cup, which had started in 1960, was absorbed into the UE FA Cup
FA Cup
(now UEFA
UEFA
Europa League) in 1999. In women's football UEFA
UEFA
also conducts the UEFA
UEFA
Women's Champions League for club teams. The competition was first held in 2001, and known as the UEFA
UEFA
Women's Cup until 2009. The UEFA Super Cup
UEFA Super Cup
pits the winners of the Champions League against the winners of the Europa League (previously the winners of the Cup Winners' Cup), and came into being in 1973.[4][5][6] The UEFA Intertoto Cup
UEFA Intertoto Cup
was a summer competition, previously operated by several Central European football associations, which was relaunched and recognized as official UEFA
UEFA
club competition by UEFA
UEFA
in 1995.[7] The last Intertoto Cup took place in 2008. The European/South American Cup was jointly organised with CONMEBOL between the Champions League and the Copa Libertadores
Copa Libertadores
winners.[8] Only five teams[9][10] (Juventus, Ajax, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Chelsea[11]) have won each of the three main competitions (European Cup/ UEFA
UEFA
Champions League, European Cup Winners' Cup/UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and UEFA
UEFA
Cup/ UEFA
UEFA
Europa League),[12] a feat that is no longer possible for any team that did not win the Cup Winners' Cup. There are currently eight teams throughout Europe
Europe
that have won two of the three trophies; all but one have won the Cup Winners' Cup, four require a win in the Champions League and four require a UEFA
UEFA
Europa League win. Juventus of Italy
Italy
was the first team in Europe—remaining the only one to date (2015)—to win all UEFA's official championships and cups[13] and, in commemoration of achieving that feat, have received The UEFA Plaque by the Union of European Football
Football
Associations on 12 July 1988.[14][15] UEFA's premier futsal competition is the UEFA
UEFA
Futsal
Futsal
Cup, a tournament started in 2001 which replaced the former Futsal
Futsal
European Clubs Championship. This event, despite enjoying a long and well-established tradition in the European futsal community, dating back to 1984, was never recognized as official by UEFA. Current title holders[edit]
