UEFA competitions, also referred to by the mass media as European football,[Note 1] are the competitions organised by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), generally in professional and amateur association football and futsal. The term was established by the Confederation to differentiate the tournaments under its administration from other international competitions held in Europe between 1960 and 1990, such as the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, Karl Rappan Cup, Cup of the Alps, Balkans Cup and Mitropa Cup (as well as some which had already been discontinued by 1960 such as the Latin Cup), tournaments still not recognised by the organization. The Confederation is the only organization with legal authority over these tournaments and considers only results in these competitions in calculating and communicating confederation-level official records and statistics and setting combined values in inter-club football.
The only team to have won every club competition is Juventus of Italy, while the Italian, German, Spanish, French and Russian men's national teams are only ones to have won the European football championship in all age categories prior to the start of the UEFA Nations League in 2018. The Germany women's national football team is the only team to have won the women's championship in all age categories.
