Best Football (Soccer) Clubs in the World

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Ajax (Netherlands)

This is the perfect example of how so many silly people with no knowledge of football attach themselves to this great game. For Ajax to be outside the top 20 is simply despicable. At most, there are only 3 or 4 clubs in the world who have had more success than them. Football is about being successful, money and size of fanbase aren't factors, clubs aren't there to have the most money, or the biggest fanbase, they're there to win the most trophies. Otherwise why would they exist? Use your brains people.

How is Ajax under Persib. Have you ever heard of that team before this chart was made?

Ajax have a better history than man city this is where they should be

AJAX should be first!? - Vinniebrodieisboss

22Tractor Sazi (Iran)

A great football team with fantastic fans!
It has approximately 35 million fans throughout the country which support their beloved team enthusiastically. In every match it draws about 70,000 fans to the stadium in Tabriz.

This Team is anti racism symbol in middle east and Iran country. Tractorsazi located at AZARBAIJAN area which have different Mother tongue and language (Turkish) and for this reason Iran federation discriminated this team deliberately. Turkish people consist 30 million person of Iran and completely boycott by Iranian political people. Please announced this protest to FIFA.

Tractor club 1970, a famous football team in South Azerbayjan, with amazing fans who extremely support their team. In every match fans fill the stadium to its capacity,70000, and give their team an unbelievable strength.
They have won their last four match in a row.

23Fc Porto (Portugal)

The team with the highest number of trophies in the XXI century. In the whole world

Best team of Portugal and one of the best Europeen Teams in this past years. In 2003 whey won the Uefa Cup (Now, Europa League) and one Year after the Uefa Champions League. In 2011 they have won the Europa League again, being one of the greatest teams in the world.

We can still win our league and do well in the champions league even though we sell our star players, we don't have much star power on the team only (mostly) players with great potential, some players that have played for us that we sold are Falcao, Hulk etc, and we showed the rest of Europe the excellence of mourinho.. We can take on any team in the worl and have a good chance of winning even against barca

The best team in the world.

24Tottenham Hotspurs (England)

Spurs embodies the greatness of the Premier League as one of the best leagues in the world. They are able to play spectacularly and stand up to the giant clubs despite having a far smaller budget (of course still more than other clubs). Their history is amazing, first to win the double and the first non-league to win the FA Cup. The number of legends that have made their way through Spurs is huge, and we're already graced by a legend in the making in Harry Kane! THE HURRICANE! But most importantly, it's the passion of the players and fans alike, that make it one of the best in the world. Honestly, be amazed when you come down to White Hart Lane yourself. COYS!

Ok I'm in the USA and I love the Spurs. I don't even know who the heck Persib Bandung is. So when you think about it a team that has influence in another country is far better than a club NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD OF

The spurs are the greatest!
White Hart Lane is my favorite place to be!

My club in Belgium is AA Gent, within 5 years they will win their first title!
They already won the cup 3 times!

Never been relegated from the Prem, so deserve at least top 10!

26Persipura Jayapura (Indonesia)

Persipura is Better Team than Other Indonesian's Club
Persipura is the Winner Indonesia Super League 2013..!

Persipura the club is a amazing, persipura = Barcelona

Persipura is amazing player in Indonesia very good
Go PERSIPURA GO Indonesia!
GREAT IndonesiaN FOOTBALL

Melanesian-Papuan players have that 'black' thing, the swing, the control, the spirit to win, simply genetically better in control of the ball, balance and body than the Asian-Indonesians (mukrat) from Java and other parts of Indonesia.

I know soccer (football), and I never heard any of these Indonesian teams.

27Celtic (Scotland)

Anyone who really knows their football, the origins of the modern, which of course lie in England and Scotland and at the heart of those roots were charity to the poor, and helping working class communities. Well no club personifies this more than Celtic. An Irish marist priest called Brother Walfrid founded them in 1888 to raise money for the poor Catholic Irish and native protestant Scottish in the east end of Glasgow. Today fans from both those communities have honoured this great man by making them the biggest and most distributed "genuine" fan base in the world. True fans that love the club for the right reasons and not for what it might win at the end of a season. I write this as an English Arsenal fan by the way, which I hope is as big as honour as I can give this great club north of the border. Hail Hail!

Best fans, most extensive fan base, most loyal fan base, first non-Latin nation club to win the European Cup with all home-based, home-grown players, best behaved fans, developed three of the world's greatest players, Jimmy Johnstone, Kenny Dalglish, Henrik Larsson.

If you look for the blend of passion, history, fanbase and stadium there is only one club that can be top. The lisbon Lions was a feat that will never be repeated, with a European Cup winning team all hailing from 30 miles of Celtic Park. With todays football about money and greed we should remember the special events that made us fall in love with the game. Witness Celtic Fans at home and away an you will understand how special this club is. They're more than football.

Anyone can support The Celtic give it a try (The World loves the Celtic )

28A.S. Roma (Italy)

Okay, Roma still in sky forever. Not instant for to be real winner but only roma can be it.

AS ROma is the first team of the Eternal City, the capital of the great Roman Empire! A great team for a great city!

Roma must be loved no discussions.

Also Roma is better than man city

29LA Galaxy (United States)

LA galaxy is. United States team that consists of many nations. Where else can you find the captain of Ireland, leading a team of the top players from countries like Mexico and England. Not to mention they're great selection of players from the US as well. David beckham, Steven Gerard, Landon Donovan and many more have all played for the Galaxy. The best!

Good team and one of the richest team in the world. Soon to be the top 10 in the world.

L.A. can beet all 50 teams ahead of them

30Boca Juniors (Argentina)

This whole list is a mistake on it's own, not only does Boca Jr rank in the top 10 in the world but I must pay my respects to the other great clubs as well, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester United and etc. This list was made for those who maybe even watch the game. Unbelievable to think of teams yet alone clubs never even heard of or organizations put on the list just because they are well known for the countries themselves. This list is disrespectful in the lack of knowledge for soccer and everything else that goes a long with the greatest game in the world and history.

Boca has won 18 international titles, like the AC Milan. They both has the highest number of international titles and, I think, they are the best. Boca has excelled at every cup played. Tons of great international players, who made great other teams, were discovered by boca juniors

This list is just ridiculous. Boca and Milan are the teams with the most international championship, there's no way to compete against that. And Boca for me should be above Milan because Boca never went to second division

One of the most winner teams of international cups in the whole history! Come on!

31Sevilla F.C. (Spain)

First team to win Europa League three consecutive times. They may never be considered a top team, but they will always be known as best of the rest.

Not even top 4 all time in Spain. Bilbao is better. All time.

35Everton (England)

Amazing club! Great supporters, brilliant history, and very consistent, surely should be higher than Newcastle United and Aston Villa, two teams who very much lack these qualities!

Everton FC are great because they haven't sold their souls to satan like other clubs and yet are a massive club! Dixie Dean had 60 goals in a season! Nobody wanted to mess with BIG Duncan Ferguson! It doesn't matter if you call them "The Toffees" "The Blues" "The School of Science" or "The People's Club" they represent what is pure about Englsh football! COYB!

Alls you have to do is look at the finance of Everton and the possision they have got to over the past few years and look at the other clubs who have spent hundred of millions and haven't got any better just worse off. One amazing football club who has players playing for the game not the money!

Everton > Liverpool

37FC Schalke 04 (Germany)

Schalke 04, have been so brave to make it to the champion league semi-final, what a nice brave team and I think Schalke should be just outside the top ten from this great performance and by the way, they beat Inter 5-2 away for god sake.

Not many clubs out there with more passionate fans and a bigger tradition...

Schalke is the team with the best fans.
I think they are the best team in the bundesliga
Theyve won the dfb like times and that's very impressive
