Football continental championships

There are six association football continental championships for national teams from each continental confederation, contested every 2 to 4 years. There are also 6 continental club championships contested yearly by club teams from within each continental confederation.

Contents

The governing bodies of the six continental confederations are all members of FIFA, the international association football governing body.

Men's national team championships

Notes:

  • The Copa América, as well as previously the Gold Cup, also include invited teams from outside the respective continental confederations.
  • The number of teams includes only those teams participating in the championship group phase; it does not include teams competing in preliminary or qualifying rounds.
  • The champions of the respective national team championships qualify for the Confederations Cup in matching years (along with the host country and the current World Cup champion).

    Men's club championships

    Note: The number of teams includes only those teams that participate in the group stage; it does not include all teams participating in preliminary or qualifying rounds.

    The Champions of the respective club championships qualify for the FIFA Club World Cup the following December - along with the champion of the host country's domestic league (if the respective continental championship is won by a team from the host country, then the highest finishing team not from the host country takes the qualification spot from that continental championship).

    Women's club championships

    Note: The number of teams includes only those teams that participate in the group stage; it does not include all teams participating in preliminary or qualifying rounds.
