5 Biggest English Clubs to Have Never Won a Major Trophy

  • There are shortage of top-flight honours available with English clubs chasing silverware across various cups and leagues.
  •  Top clubs like Liverpool and Man United have the most trophy wins in the history of English football.
  •  Other reputable names remain trophyless, despite many close calls.

It’s been well over a century and a half since football teams in England began competing for trophies, marking the inaugural FA Cup in 1871. About 17 years later, the Football League officially kicked off, sparking a continuous pursuit of silverware among clubs nationwide.

Since then, additional domestic cup competitions have emerged, tailored to teams at various levels of the football hierarchy. Then, in 1955, the European Cup made its debut, later rebranded as the Champions League. Alongside this prestigious tournament, secondary and even tertiary continental honors became available for English clubs to vie for. Suffice it to say, there’s no shortage of prestigious titles up for grabs in the top-flight arena.
