What is the European football team that has the longest consecutive participation streak in the following UEFA club competitions:

The streak is to be considered valid also if a team has taken part in the UEFA Cup, then the year after in the UEFA Champions League and the year after in the UEFA Cup Winnners' Cup, so each season that a team played a match in the aforementioned UEFA tournaments.

For example, Juventus Turin competed in UEFA competitions for 28 consecutive seasons since 1963 to 1991, more than any other Italian club.

  • What exactly are you asking for? The longest participation streak in a given competition or the longest participation streak in any of them? I assumed the former but I see the second answer talks about the latter. – fedorqui Aug 29 '17 at 14:47
