Treble Association Football

FC Barcelona is the first European men's football team to win a continental treble twice, in 2008-09 and in 2014-15 (pictured).

A treble in association football is achieved when a club team wins three trophies in a single season. A continental treble[1] involves winning the club's national league competition, main national cup competition, and main continental trophy. A domestic treble involves winning three national competitions--normally the league title, the primary cup competition, and one secondary competition.[2][3]

Competitions which consist of a single match or a two-leg match (e.g. the FA Community Shield, Supercopa de España, Trophée des Champions, DFL-Supercup, the Recopa Sudamericana, the UEFA Super Cup, the FIFA Club World Cup, the Intercontinental Cup and others) are not normally counted as part of a treble.[4]

Continental trebles

This list includes clubs who have won their country's top-tier league and the primary cup competition (the double), in addition to the major continental tournament, all within a single season. This was first achieved in 1967 by Celtic, winning the Scottish Football League, Scottish Cup, and European Cup. They also won the Scottish League Cup that year, making them the only team in history to win the domestic treble and the European Cup (although most European nations do not have a League Cup).[5]

Of men's football, seven European clubs have achieved the feat since 1967.[6]Barcelona and Bayern Munich are the only European clubs to have won this treble twice.[6][7]Cruz Azul is the only Mexican team to have won a continental treble, having achieved it twice in 1969 and 1997.[8]

No South American team has achieved the feat with the above stipulations, with clubs in its most successful nations hampered by the absence of a major domestic knockout cup: the Copa do Brasil only began in 1989,[9] and the Copa Argentina began in 2011;[10] Uruguay still does not have one. In 1962, Brazil's Santos won the Copa Libertadores, the Taça Brasil, and the Campeonato Paulista (São Paulo state championship).[11][12] In 2019, Flamengo achieved a similar feat by capturing the Copa Libertadores, Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, and Campeonato Carioca (Rio de Janeiro state championship).[13]
