Yes, such an aspect is common amongst in football on both the club and national level. While some leagues have official rules on the matter, such as the Champions League (where a "Multiple-Winner Badge", seen below, is rewarded for any club winning the Champions League five times or three consecutive), while others are far less formal.

Co-ownership is a bit like like a stock market futures contract combined with a loan. What's important to remember is that co-ownership deals are usually finite arrangements.
