History and membership

{{unreferenced section|date=June 2017}}File:Siège UEFA Nyon (Suisse).JPG|thumb|UEFA headquarters in NyonNyonUEFA was founded on 15 June 1954 in Basel, Switzerland after consultation between the Italian, French, and Belgian associations.NEWS,weblink 1954-80 - History - About UEFA - Inside UEFA –,, 2 January 2014,, 15 May 2018, en, The European football union began with 25 members; that number doubled by the early 1990s as new associations were born out of the fragmentation of the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia into their constituent states. Until 1959 the main headquarters were located in Paris, and later in Bern. In 1995, UEFA headquarters were transferred to Nyon, Switzerland.UEFA membership coincides for the most part with recognition as a sovereign country in Europe, although there are some exceptions. Some states (Monaco and Vatican City) are not members. Some UEFA members are not sovereign states, but form part of a larger recognised sovereign state in the context of international law. These include Northern Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales (countries of the United Kingdom), Gibraltar (British Overseas Territory), the Faroe Islands (autonomous country within Denmark), and 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 member entity.Some UEFA members are transcontinental states (Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Turkey and Russia) and others are considered part of Europe both culturally and politically (Armenia and Cyprus). Countries which had been members of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) were also admitted to the European football association, particularly Israel (because it had been banned from the AFC group in 1974) and Kazakhstan. Additionally some 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. participate in the English League; Derry City, situated in Northern Ireland, plays in the Republic of Ireland-based League of Ireland and the 7 native Liechtensteinian teams play in the Swiss Leagues.{{clear}}

UEFA runs official international competitions in Europe and some countries of Northern, Southwestern and Central Asia for national teams and professional clubs, known as UEFA competitions, some of which are regarded as the world's most prestigious tournaments.


The UEFA is the organiser of two of the most prestigious competitions in international football: The UEFA European Championship and the UEFA Nations League. The main competition for men's national teams is the UEFA European Championship, started in 1958, with the first finals in 1960, and known as the European Nations Cup until 1964. It is also called UEFA or the EURO. The UEFA Nations League is the second tournament of the UEFA and was introduced in 2018. The tournament largely replaced the international friendly matches previously played on the FIFA International Match Calendar. It will be played every two years.UEFA also runs national competitions at Under-21, Under-19 and Under-17 levels. For women's national teams, UEFA operates the UEFA Women's Championship for senior national sides as well as Women's Under-19 and Women's Under-17 Championships.UEFA also organised the UEFA–CAF Meridian Cup with CAF for youth teams in an effort to boost youth football. UEFA launched the UEFA Regions' Cup, for semi-professional teams representing their local region, in 1999. In futsal there is the UEFA Futsal Championship and UEFA Futsal Under-21 Championship. Despite the existence of UEFA's Futsal and Beach soccer committee, UEFA does not organise any beach soccer competitions. International and club beach soccer competitions for UEFA members are organised externally by Beach Soccer Worldwide.The Italian, German, Spanish, French and RussianIncluding results of the Soviet Union men's national teams are the sole teams to have won the European football championship in all categories.


(File:UEFA Members 2016.svg|thumb|upright=1.7|UEFA member countries by club competition entry entitlements, 2009/10)The top-ranked UEFA competition is the 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 to 1992 and known as the European Champion Clubs' Cup or simply the European Cup).A second, lower-ranked competition is the UEFA Europa League. This competition, for national knockout cup winners and high-placed league teams, was launched by UEFA in 1971 as a successor of both the former UEFA Cup and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (also begun in 1955). A third competition, the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, which had started in 1960, was absorbed into the UEFA Cup (now UEFA Europa League) in 1999.In December 2018, UEFA announced the creation of a third club competition, with a working title of Europa League 2 (UEL2). The competition would feature 32 teams directly in 8 groups of 4, with a knockout round between the second placed teams in UEL2 and the third placed teams in the Europa League, leading to a final 16 knockout stage featuring the eight group winners. UEFA announced that the first edition of the competition begins in 2021 Europa League 2 to begin in 2021, from women's football UEFA also conducts the UEFA Women's Champions League for club teams. The competition was first held in 2001, and known as the UEFA Women's Cup until 2009.The 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.WEB,weblink History of the UEFA Super Cup,, 21 August 2006, WEB,weblink 1973: Ajax enjoy early success,, 5 January 2016, WEB,weblink – UEFA Cup Winners' Cup,, yes,weblink" title="">weblink 3 May 2010, The UEFA Intertoto Cup was a summer competition, previously operated by several Central European football associations, which was relaunched and recognised as official UEFA club competition by UEFA in 1995.WEB,weblink History of the UEFA Intertoto Cup,, 14 August 2009, yes,weblink" title="">weblink 8 December 2013, dmy-all, 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 winners.WEB,weblink History of the UEFA/CONMEBOL Intercontinental Cup,, 14 August 2009, yes,weblink" title="">weblink 8 December 2013, dmy-all, Only five teamsWEB, Spanish,weblink Un dilema histórico, El Mundo Deportivo's Historical Archive, 23 September 2003, WEB,weblink Edición del $dateTool.format('EEEE d MMMM yyyy', $, Página $ - Hemeroteca -, (Juventus, Ajax, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and ChelseaChelsea qualified for Europa League's Round of 32 after finished in third place in the group stage of the 2012–13 Champions League.) have won each of the three main competitions (European Cup/UEFA Champions League, European Cup Winners' Cup/UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League),WEB,weblink The man with the golden touch,, 27 August 2004, a feat that is no longer possible for any team that did not win the Cup Winners' Cup.
