Manchester United

Manchester United is one of the most successful clubs in world football, with a glittering history of success on the field. Manchester United have won a record 13 titles in the Premier League since the top flight of English football was given that new name in 1992.

Sir Alex Ferguson was the man who masterminded the triumph in the inaugural Premier League season, in 1992/93. The Reds went on to win titles in 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013 – more than all other clubs put together to date.

Manchester United have won the FA Cup on 12 occasions – a feat bettered only by Arsenal’s 13 triumphs – and have appeared in the final 19 times in total. The Reds are also the only club to appear in an FA Cup final in every decade since the War.

Manchester United won three European Cups, the first of which came in 1968; that victory made them the first English club to win the competition. The other two victories came in 1999 and 2008. The club has also won the Europa League in 2017, the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1991, the Super Cup also in 1991, the Intercontinental Cup in 1999 and the Club World Cup in 2008.

After their Champions League wins in 1999 and 2008, Manchester United competed as a UEFA representative at the 2000 FIFA Club World Championship and the 2008 FIFA Club World Cup. They were knocked out of the 2000 tournament at the group stage, but went on to win the 2008 edition, highlighted above, becoming the first English side to do so.
