3) VfL Wolfsburg
Wolfsburg plays in the top division of Germany, the Bundesliga, and was one of the founding members of the competition. Unlike the men’s Bundesliga Wolfsburg have dominated the Frauen Bundesliga over their rivals Bayern Munich. They have won the league for the last four consecutive seasons now. The team is also doing well in the UEFA Women’s Champions League but unfortunately haven’t been able to win it recently, they won the competition last time in 2014. Overall, they have won it twice and are the runner-ups for the competition consecutively for the last 3 seasons which is quite astonishing. However, this season, they were knocked out in the quarterfinals by Chelsea.
2) FC Barcelona Femení
Just like their men’s team, FC Barcelona Femení is also one of the best teams in the world. The club was founded in 1988 and is the reigning champion of Spain right now by winning the Primera División in 2019-20. Barcelona Femení has also won the most number of Primera División titles in the history of the competition, winning it 5 times. The club has won the Copa Catalunya every year since 2009 except for 2013. They have also been the runner-up in the 2018-19 UEFA Women’s Champions League and they reached last year’s Champions League semi-final. They are also in this year’s UCL final, to be contested against Chelsea.
1) Olympique Lyonnais
The French club has been the female team of Olympique Lyonnais since 2004 and is the most successful club in the history of Division 1 Féminine with fifteen league titles. They have won the league for fourteen consecutive seasons which is by the way a world record for consecutive title wins in any sport. The team is also the most successful in the UEFA Women’s Champions League-winning it seven times. The club is definitely a role model for every female sports team in the world. The CEO of Lyon Jean-Michel Aulas has compared the team with the Real Madrid and Barcelona of men’s game.
