World's 10 Best Football Tournaments

Copa del Rey

The Copa del Rey, or "King's Cup," is one of European football's most prestigious cup competitions.

The history of the Copa del Rey is both rich and regal. Until the formation of the Campeonato de Liga in 1928, the Copa was Spain's principal domestic competition. It is the longest-running competition in Spanish football.

Confederations Cup

The FA Cup has produced some of English football's most iconic moments and is partly responsible for Wembley's status as "The Home of Football."

Africa Cup of Nations

Africa is a continent that is seemingly in love with football. This tournament pits Africa's greatest international sides against each other in a fascinating battle for supremacy.

UEFA Europa League

The UEFA Europa League is the much-maligned successor to the UEFA Cup. As the Champions League's younger and less glamorous sibling, the Europa League is vulnerable to snipers who criticize the competition's enormous fixture list and a plethora of dead-rubber ties.

Copa Libertadores

The Copa Libertadores is the South American equivalent of the Champions League.

The Libertadores trophy is the most coveted prize in South American club football, and the competitions final is broadcast in an incredible 135 countries across the globe.

Copa America

Copa America is the oldest existing continental football competition. The first formal Copa America was held in Argentina in 1916 to commemorate the first century of Argentina's independence. The competition involves the teams associated with CONMEBOL as well as two other nations, frequently Mexico, Costa Rica or the United States.

UEFA European Championship

The first pan-European international tournament was held in 1958 in France. In the intervening 55 years, the European Championship has established itself as one of world football's most exciting competitions.

UEFA Champions League

The UEFA Champions League is the most glamorous club competition in world football. This tournament brings together the greatest teams in the world. As the financial clout of club football has grown, it has managed to supersede international football. In terms of the quality of play on the field, the Champions League is now the best tournament there is.

FIFA World Cup

There is no greater competition than the World Cup. The European Championship may have a greater variety of winners. The Champions League may provide better football. However, nothing matches the prestige of lifting the FIFA World Cup.
