This webpage contains an overview of all football clubs that participated in the European
Football Cups since 1955. The overview is based on all matches in the UEFA European Cup Coefficients Database
. Please note that one "season"
of the first two Inter-Cities Fairs Cup tournaments (the former UEFA Cup) took more than
one year to complete, but are counted only as a single year in the "number of years"
column. Matches played in the UEFA Intertoto Cup are not counted.
Clubs of the former Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, East Germany, and Czechoslovakia are listed
separately. Many of these clubs still take part in the European Cups and are also listed
under the new associations that evolved from these countries. Both entries must be
combined in order to obtain a full history of the club. The same holds true for a number
of clubs that were renamed due to various reasons.
