CHECK OUT LAST YEAR’S TOP 30 – CLICK HERE FOR THE 30 BIGGEST CLUBS IN BRITISH FOOTBALL IN 2016  

What makes a big football club?

A variety of factors, including size of support, wealth, standard of stadium, current standing and historic success.

We’ve taken all these aspects into account – giving more weight to current situation than the past (with less and less importance attached to events as you delve further into the history books) – and come up with a ranking of the top 30 biggest football clubs in Britain.

Inevitably there are areas of dispute and clubs who narrowly missed out on making the cut.

Take a look and let us know your opinion by leaving a comment below.

Record signing: £55m on Kevin De Bruyne.

Need Champions League success to show they are truly out of Man Uniteds shadow.

4. Chelsea

30

4. Chelsea – Total number of trophies won: 29. English top flight titles: 6. European Cups: 1. Last trophy win: 2017 Premier League. Average attendance so far this season: 41,498.

Comment: Arguably the most successful English club of the past decade, ahead of Man United, the Blues are very much a modern giant, bankrolled by Roman Abramovichs billions. A new stadium is planned, befitting Chelseas current status.

3. Arsenal

30

3. Arsenal – Total number of trophies won: 45. English top flight titles: 13. Last trophy win: 2017 FA Community Shield. Average attendance so far this season: 59,377. Historic average league position: 4.96. Social media following: 37.9m on Facebook, 12.5m on Twitter, 10.4m on Instagram, 722k YouTube subs. Latest revenue figures: £354m (2016). Record signing: £45m Alexandre Lacazette. Comment: Arsenal slip down a place from last years ranking, having slipped out of the Champions League for the first time in 20 years. The Gunners did collect another FA Cup, though, to increase their impressive trophy haul, but these days the games giants are judged on their performance in the Premier League and Champions League.

2. Liverpool

30

2. Liverpool – Total number of trophies won: 60. English top flight titles: 18. European Cups: 5. Last trophy win: 2012 League Cup. Average attendance so far this season: 53,176. Historic average league position: 3.44. Social media following: 30.3m on Facebook, 9.21m on Twitter, 5.1m on Instagram, 720k YouTube subs. Latest revenue figures: £302m (2016). Record signing: £48m on Naby Keita (arriving summer 2018). Comment: Rival fans joke Liverpool are too obsessed with history, but its testament to how glorious the Reds past is that they remain one of the biggest clubs in world football, despite going 27 years without a top flight title. The redevelopment of Anfield and return to the Champions League suggest a club looking forward. Just one League Cup in the past decade is a poor return for an institution that once dominated English and European football, though.

1. Manchester United

30

1. Manchester United – Total number of trophies won: 66. English top flight titles: 20. European Cups: 3. Last trophy win: 2017 Europa League. Average attendance so far this season: 75,028. Historic average league position: 5.08. Social media following: 73.8m on Facebook, 16.2m on Twitter, 19.9m on Instagram, no YouTube channel. Latest revenue figures: £515m (2016). Record signing: £89m on Paul Pogba (British record). Comment: The most trophies, the biggest average attendance, the most revenue, the most expensive signing… there is no doubt Man United are the biggest club in Britain right now. Thanks largely to the efforts of legendary managers Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson, the Red Devils have built up a huge global following. Jose Mourinho delivered two trophies last season, and got them back into the Champions League – now he has to win the title and the biggest trophy in Europe.

List of football clubs in England by competitive honours won

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to navigation
Jump to search

Preston North End in 1888–89 , the first Football League champions. They completed the season unbeaten and went on to complete a Double by winning the FA Cup

This page lists English association football clubs whose men’s sides have won competitive honours run by official governing bodies . Friendly competitions and matches organized between clubs are not included. The football associations FIFA and UEFA run international and European competitions; and The Football Association , and its mostly self-governing subsidiary bodies the English Football League and Premier League , runs national competitions. County Football Associations organise regional competitions, but all full list of their honours is not provided in this article.

The European governing body UEFA was founded in 1954, and created their first competition, the European Cup , the next year. It was expanded and renamed in 1992 as the UEFA Champions League. Liverpool hold the English record, with five wins. [1] Parallel to UEFA, various officials created the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1955, but this competition was disbanded when UEFA created the replacement tournament the UEFA Cup in 1971, renamed the UEFA Europa League in 2009. [2] The English record number of Europa Leagues is three, also held by Liverpool. Another competition absorbed into the UEFA Cup, in 1999, was the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup , which was created in 1960 and featured the winners of national knockout competitions. [3] The winners of this competition played the European Cup winners in the UEFA Super Cup , starting in 1972 but was recognised by UEFA in 1973, which now features the winners of the Champions and Europa Leagues. [4] The International Football Cup, also known as the UEFA Intertoto Cup , started in 1961, was a competition for clubs not participating in the European Cup, UEFA Cup, and Cup Winners Cup. UEFA officially recognised it in 1995, and discontinued it in 2008, with the Europa League expanded to accommodate Intertoto clubs. [5] UEFA and CONMEBOL also created an intercontinental competition in 1960 with the Intercontinental Cup , featuring representatives from both associations. In 2000, the international governing body FIFA created the FIFA Club World Cup and in 2004 the Intercontinental Cup was merged with it. Manchester United are the only English club to win either intercontinental competition, winning each once. [6] [7]

England’s first competition organised by a national body, the FA Cup , began in the 1871–72 season, making it one of the oldest football competitions in the world. [8] [9] Arsenal hold the record number of wins, with 13. [10] League football began in the next decade with the founding of The Football League in 1888–89 . The name First Division was adopted in 1892, when The Football League gained a second division . The First Division remained the highest division of the English football league system until 1992, when the Premier League was founded. Manchester United have won the most top division titles, 20. [11] The English equivalent of the super cup began in 1898 with the inauguration of the Sheriff of London Charity Shield , pitting the best professional and amateur sides of the year against each other. [12] The trophy would develop into the FA Charity Shield in 1908, which was later renamed the FA Community Shield in 2002. Manchester United also hold the record here, with 21 wins. [12] The Football League created its own knockout competition in 1960, the League Cup . Its current record is eight wins, held by Liverpool. [13] The Anglo-Italian League Cup was created in 1969 to match English cup winners against the winners of the Coppa Italia , and was permanently disbanded in 1976. [14] In 1985, the Full Members Cup and Football League Super Cup were created as substitutes for UEFA competitions after UEFA responded to the Heysel Stadium disaster by banning English clubs. [15] [16] They finished in 1986 and 1992 respectively. The Football League Centenary Trophy marked The Football League’s 100th birthday, in the 1988–89 season . [17]

Lower down in the hierarchy of English football are many other competitions, not included in the tables on this page. These include competitions run by the above national governing bodies, but organised for clubs ineligible for higher competitions. For example, the Texaco Cup , EFL Trophy , and Anglo-Italian Cups . Regional competitions are organised by County Football Associations. Most clubs founded in the early years of English football used to play in county competitions, although those that still participate generally field youth or reserve sides. Many county cups are now contested by lower or regional division clubs.

Summary totals[ edit ]

Numbers in bold are record totals for that category. Clubs in italics are Double winners: they have won two or more of these trophies in the same season (excluding super cups). Trophies that were shared between two clubs are counted as honours for both teams. Clubs tied in total honours are listed chronologically by most recent honour won. See the other tables for breakdowns of each competition won.

Cups here are competitions with a knockout format. Among FIFA and UEFA competitions, these are the UEFA Champions League , the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup , the UEFA Europa League , the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup , the UEFA Intertoto Cup , and the FIFA Club World Cup . Among top-qualifying competitions overseen by The FA, these are the top division, the FA Cup , the League Cup , the Full Members Cup , the Football League Super Cup and the Football League Centenary Trophy .

Super cups here consist of the two FIFA and UEFA honours that had only two participating clubs per season. These are the Intercontinental Cup and UEFA Super Cup .

Shields are the FA Community Shield and its precursor the Sheriff of London Charity Shield . The Anglo-Italian League Cup is also listed as a shield because it only had two clubs competing per season.

FA, EFL and PL (lower-qualifying)[ edit ]

Main article: List of FA and league honours won by men’s clubs § Lower-qualifying honours

In addition to the honours listed in the section above, England’s football governing bodies have also organized a variety of less prominent competitions for clubs not eligible for the honours above. One example is the Texaco Cup (or International League Board Competition), which was available for top division sides that hadn’t qualified for Europe, and was one of the few attempts to create a cross-border competition between clubs from the various nations of the UK and Ireland . [37] Another is the EFL Trophy, which involves clubs from League One and League Two (the third and fourth tiers of the English football league system ). [38]

County FAs[ edit ]

Main article: County Football Association

English football also has a network of regional governing bodies known as County Football Associations . These associations are roughly based around county lines, although some cover multiple counties or the boundaries of major cities. [39] They generally have a Senior Cup, such as the Kent Senior Cup or Middlesex Senior Cup , as their premier competition for men’s clubs. [40] [41] In some cases, such as the Kent and Middlesex Senior Cups, these involve the senior first-teams of lower-division or regional-division clubs; [40] [41] in other cases it can have other formats, such as the Manchester Senior Cup , which became a reserve team competition for six large clubs from the region. In the years when league football was unavailable or only available to northern and midlands clubs, the Senior Cups coexisted with the FA Cup as the main tournaments for clubs. [42] [43] [44]
