Top 5 Most Successful Clubs in The World

Earlier this year, Europe's biggest clubs came together to form the European Super League. Even though they've won the most titles over the past decade, that doesn't mean they're the most successful clubs in the history of the sport. Teams have obtained much more hardware than the ESL crowd has.

5. Atletico Penarol - Uruguay - 108 trophies

Atletico Penarol, Uruguay's Atletico Penarol, is made up of the greatest club in South America, having won 108 trophies. Penarol have been the most successful team in Uruguay for nearly two decades. Since entering the league in 1900, they have never been relegated from the top division. The team has 50 Primera Division titles to its name and has won the Copa Libertadores five times. Diego Forlan, a former Manchester United and Atletico Madrid striker and one of the greatest Uruguayan players of all time, is a notable name in the ranks.

4. Club Nacional de Football - Uruguay - 114 trophies

Even though Nacional have won the domestic cup competition more than twice as many times as Penarol, it is Penarol that has always had better domestic cup competition success than Nacional. Nacional has the advantage over their rival in terms of title wins and international recognition. Diego Godin, who came up through Nacional, is a famed player for the club, as Inter Milan defender Diego Godin did early in his career.

3. Celtic -109.

Celtic have the most Scottish League and Cup trophies, and they won their most recent championship in 2016-17. The club is the first Scottish one to ever win the European Cup, having done so in 1967. Celtic reached the 1970 European Cup Final and the 2003 UEFA Cup Final, both in addition to making the 1970 FA Cup Final.

2. The Rangers - 119.

While many people may be shocked to learn, Rangers have won a number of championships during the last decade, as they consistently dominate their domestic league. In the world of soccer, no club has won more league titles, Scottish Cup wins, or Scottish League Cup victories than Rangers, who have tallied 54 league titles, 33 Scottish Cup victories, and 27 Scottish League Cup wins, and also set a record for the most treble wins, which they have accomplished seven times. And to make it even more impressive, they have won over 119 trophies as of today.

1. Al Ahly, an Egyptian club — 118 trophies.

The Al Ahly club, if we judge by trophies, is the most successful team in the world. Al Ahly are called “The Club of the Century” in African football because they were founded in 1907 and have never finished in anything but first place since then. They have 41 Egyptian Premier League titles, 36 Egyptian Cups, 10 Egyptian Super Cups, eight CAF Champions League trophies, six CAF Super Cups, four CAF Cup Winners' Cups, and one CAF Confederations Cup to their name in their massive collection of prizes.
