The UEFA European Football Championship is organised by UEFA and was first held in 1960 as the European Nations Football Championship. It is one of the regional tournaments held periodically in world football and is similar in concept to the Copa América, organised by CONMEBOL in Latin America; the AFC Asian Cup, organised by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC); and the CAF Africa Cup of Nations, organised by the Confederation of African Football (CAF). The most successful teams have been the Federal Republic of Germany and Spain with three titles each; France have won two.
