Following is a thorough and detailed list of all teams ever to have participated in the European competitions organized by UEFA (I disregard Super Cup, which has a quite different competition format). The arrangement of these teams is not done on an alphabetical basis, since I prefer to group them by countries (although each one, this time, has a traditional A to Z order and, in some cases like Germany, Russia, Yugoslavia and the newborn Soviet and Balkan republics, I include all the political territories a team played for). From the corresponding link of each country you can access the list of its participating teams, which includes the following data for every club: 1) official team's name in its original language (or a Latin transcription), together with changes of name during its history in Eurocups, including mergers with other clubs; 2) city/-ies where it plays regularly; 3) links to the club's official (OP) or unofficial (UP) pages; 4) participations in Champions League (C1); 5) participations in the late Cup Winners' Cup (C2); 6) participations in Europa League (C3); 7) participations in the late Intertoto Cup (IC).
Mergers and changes of name considered, up to 2017-18 season (included) as many as 1,132 teams have participated in European competitions. On the other hand, I include links to 955 websites of these teams (855 official pages and 100 unofficial pages), in which as many as 42 languages are used. In the transcription of names I've used standardized linguistic norms, which apply uniformly to all the teams of the same country, so it's possible you notice some differences in the case of some clubs' names. My ultimate goal is to offer a single, unified terminology which doesn't depend on the spelling of a particular target language.

• The names of teams are written in their original spelling (or a standard transcription into Latin characters, in the case of other alphabets). This is the reason why some clubs may slightly differ in form with respect to other unstandardized information sources.
