The Champion of Champions’ Cup boasts two Nottingham Forest, one of the three oldest football clubs in the world (founded in 1865), which currently plays in the Championship (second English series) just like Leeds.

Nottingham team, winner of a European Super Cup, is the only team in the world to have won more Champions Cups than championship (two against one).Could Pulcino d’Oro stop here? Of course not! And then from the Premier League, the English Premier League, Newcastle arrives on the grassy surface of Leeds, winner of 4 championships.By the way, still about Championship it is impossible not to appoint teams like Sheffield Wednesday, one of the oldest teams in football history, born in 1867, star even in the top series with four successes, or Sheffield United that chases the return to Premier, passing through Wigan and Rothernham, without forgetting Preston.
