There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

are you asking about a sport in particular? are you asking about a competition in particular? – gbianchi Aug 11 '14 at 18:16
Any professional sports franchise. Soccer, cricket, rugby, football, etc. – Dick Babcock Aug 12 '14 at 20:13

Gloucestershire County Cricket Club, one of the oldest first-class counties, have never won the County Championship (arguably the foremost domestic cricket competition in England and Wales) since the competition started in 1890, meaning that as of 2014 they have gone 124 years without winning it.
