The European Championships have been won most by Spanish and German national teams, but when it comes to club sides, the question now is which football club has the most European Championship winners in history?
Following the completion of UEFA Euro 2020, players from 104 different clubs have collected winners’ medals over the years, with three new clubs joining the list in Atalanta, Lazio, and Sassuolo, thanks to Italy’s Wembley triumph.
In the time being, no club has come close to the success of Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, and Barcelona – without surprise, given Germany and Spain are the competition’s most successful teams.
Similarly, Juventus have emulated the three clubs after Giorgio Chiellini, Federico Chiesa, Leonardo Bonucci, and Federico Bernardeschi were among Italy’s victors in this summer’s edition.
Italy’s triumph this summer also means that Chelsea have had the most European Championship winners in history than any other Premier League club, with Liverpool being able to boast only 5 and Arsenal only 4. While Manchester United are still at a distant 2.
