Similarly to many other European countries, the most popular sport in Italy is that of Football. With an international team that is consistently considered one of the best globally, Italy is also home to a number of successful clubs that stretch throughout the country. This piece will consider these teams in a bit more detail, looking into their history and previous successes.
With a rich history and some phenomenal players, SS Lazio has managed to achieve 15 national and international titles, making them easily one of the most successful Italian football clubs as of the 2021 season.
SS Lazio was originally established as Societa Padistica Lazio about 121 years ago in January 1900. They are now most referred to as The White and Sky Blues by their fans, who attend the Stadio Olimpico in Rome bi-weekly to cheer on their team.
SS Lazio are no strangers to victory in their history playing as they have managed to win 7 Coppa Italia titles and 4 Supercoppa Italiana titles. They also won the UEFA Cup on a separate occasion.
There is no Italian football team with a better record or standing than Juventus. With an awe-inspiring 67 national and international titles as of 2021, Juventus comfortably holds the most successful Italian football team in the world.
The side is now on their 35th Series A win, their 13th Coppa Italia title, and 8 Supercoppa Italiana titles. It doesn’t stop there either, as the club became the winner of the UEFA Champions League twice and the UEFA Cup Winners cup once. They are also one of the richest football clubs in the world, seen in the fact they have recently made big signings such as Ronaldo.
Not too far behind Juventus’s number of victories, AC Milan is responsible for an outstanding 48 national and international titles. This includes the likes of 18 Series A titles, 5 Coppa Italia titles, and 7 Supercoppa Italiana titles.

Also making a list with an impressive number of titles is AS Roma, who have managed to rack up a total of 15 national and international titles in their history. It was originally established as Associazione Sportiva Roma SpA about 87 years ago in July 1927 by its founder, Italo Foschi.
