    What would you consider to be the biggest and most famous (not most financially rich) and most globally known football club in the world? Discuss.

    Edit: Sorry guys, missed the mighty AC Milan in the poll, not intentional.

    Real Madrid combines being the greatest team in history (trophies won) and being the most important club in Europe, with a great Asian presence (especially China, where it has a franchise team, and Japan), a lot of South America acknowledgement (something British clubs lack) and a great marketing and economic power.

    Maybe they have the best combination of all key factors, hence my vote towards them.

    I'll have to disagree FD...
    The biggest club is about more than just achievement.
    To me for example Barcelona is a much bigger club than Real Madrid...
    In fact Barcelona would be a very close second to Man Utd.

    But it's all so subjective...

    I think is Real Madrid, they have a great marketing in all the world and is the most famous (doesn't signify they have the big quantity of supporters).

    I hate to say this but you cannot put Liverpool ahead of United (plus where's Barca!). United are the biggest club in Britain hence they must be ahead of Liverpool.

    Has to Real Madrid. They are know all over the world, and their achievements speak for themselves. Their signings usually make headlines around the world.

    Re: The biggest club in the world?

    Completely agree, but i'd add Juventus into 5th place.

    I'd put Liverpool there due to their greater success than United on a European level. If not, i'd say the domestic power of United balances out the European power of Liverpool, and therefore they'd be tied.

    Barcelona havent always been the same big club as of recent. They're often very hot and cold, and dont have a strong European pedigree that matches some teams like Ajax and maybe OM.

    Re: The biggest club in the world?

    No probs mate, however I think otherwise and I don't even think it's a close thing.

    I think Barca over the past couple of years have been the best team in the World, however if we're talking about history and famous, everyone knows the names of Puskas, Di Stefano and Gento from the marvellous Madrid team of the 50s/60s, however can you really run off a barrage of names from Barca of the same era, they're the names I can relate to from that era? Also I remember the names of Butragueno, Sanchez, Michel and Camacho from the 80s, I know Barca had the likes of Michael Laurdrup, Schuster and Maradona (although I think he really starred when he went to Napoli) but still think Real where the better then in the 80s for def. Barca did come to the fore in the early 90s taking over from the great Milan team (probably my fav team along with Holland at around that time) however I'm sure they've only won the European Cup once in 92 or 93. Then Real came to the fore with the Galacticos which have been very entertaining. Now Barca are changing again. Real have seem to be around the glory far more than Barca and surely that rubs off in a lot of people around the world.

    Re: The biggest club in the world?

    Hard to judge here tbh, we're on a British site dominated with English people, therefore it's obvious that Man Utd will be up there. However as you can see a lot of foreign people have chosen other teams, therefore if it's based on world terms it's the non-brit's opinions that have more meaning than us Brits.

    I don't think Boca Juniors is the biggest in the worl... but from america for sure...


    7 Amateur national championshios (1905-1931)
    22 National championships
    15 International Cups (Its the world recorn, also shared with Real Madrid, milan and Independiente, from argentina)

    Boca is the biggest in America... and in the hole worl, I think it is Real Madrid, for its history, not fot its present

    Re: The biggest club in the world?

    I think it hasn't any relation with the fame of the clubs, when Liverpool won the last Champions League mid world was surprised because although has a rich history wasn't one of the most famous nowadays.

    I think the 5 most popular or known now are:

    1. Real Madrid
    2. AC Milan
    3. Barcelona
    4. Manchester United
    5. Juventus

    Probably too Bayern Munich and Inter.

    In America, I don't know if is Boca, but it's possible; too River Plate, Santos, Sao Paulo and Peñarol.
