    Notes

    
    [1] The Northern Irish totals do not include the unofficial wartime
        championships; unofficial doubles were additionally won by Linfield (3),
        Belfast Celtic (3), and Glentoran (1).
    
    [2] Includes 1958, when the cup was shared between Al-Ahly and Zamalek.
    
    [3] The totals for Levski and CSKA contain the Soviet Army cups won in
        the years no other national cup existed (before 1981).  Domestic
        trebles consist of league, cup, and Soviet Army cup.  The totals
        of Levski, Levski-Spartak and Vitosha have been summed together,
        likewise for CDNA, CSKA, and CFKA Sredets.  Levski's total includes
        the double of 1942 (league and Tzar's Cup).
    
    [4] Totals include doubles won in Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, Bohemia and
        Moravia, and Czech Republic since 1925 (without the Prague region 
        championships before 1925).  Sparta won 1 double in Czechoslovakia 
        before WW II, 1 during WW II in the Protectorate Bohemia and Moravia, 
        4 in Czechoslovakia after WW II and 2 in the Czech Republic since 1933. 
        Slavia won 2 before WW II, 2 during WW II. The double Slavia 
        defended in 1941/42 concerned the Ceský Pokal.
    
    [5] The 1988 final was stopped at 1-1 just before the end, after Steaua
        had left the field as protest to having a goal disallowed.  The match
        was later awarded 2-1 to Steaua, but after the revolution of 1989 
        Steaua gave the cup to Dinamo.  The official records of the Romanian
        FA still award the cup to Steaua, so, since they also won the league
        in 1987/88, it is included here as a "double win" for Steaua.
    
    [6] Total of Diaraf includes Foyer France.
    
    [7] Zairese name changes: CS Imana became DC Motema Pembe; TP Englebert
        became TP Mazembe; Zaire became Democratic Republic Congo (or
        Congo-Kinshasa).  Léopoldville is now known as Kinshasa.  If one adds 
        the number of double winners of Zaire (6) and Belgian Congo (3), one 
        arrives at 9 different clubs.
    
    [8] Indian doubles listed here consist of the Calcutta League and the
        Federation cup.  The cup of 1978 (part of Mohun Bagan's first double)
        was shared.

    [13] Does not include the 1951 "double": Ruch were awarded the championship
         on account of their win of the inaugural Polish cup, and in spite of
         the fact that they only finished sixth in the Polish league won by
         Wisla Kraków.

    More Trivia

    In 76 seasons in which both league and cup were played, 14 'doubles' were won.
    
    Cup winning Champions
    Athletic Club won 5 doubles while winning the league 8 times; so they more often
    combined a cup win with a league title than not; this is explained by the fact
    that they won the cup 23 times, only once less than record winners Barcelona;
    in all three seasons in which they won the league but failed to win the cup,
    they were eliminated from the latter competition by the eventual winners (1933/34
    and 1935/36 by Real Madrid, 1982/83 by Barcelona).
    
    Stopping the Champions
    Two teams stopped the league champions from completing the double in the cup
    final on three occasions: Athletic (1932/33 and 1957/58 against Real Madrid,
    1943/44 against Valencia), and Barcelona (1967/68 and 1989/90 against Real 
    Madrid and 1970/71 against Valencia): both twice denied Real Madrid and once
    Valencia.
    
    Revenge of the Runners-Up
    On four occasions, the league runners-up beat the champions in the cup final;
    this means that 4 out of 9 times that the champions lost the cup final, they
    succumbed to the league runners-up, implying a fierce fight between the two
    teams all season.  It happened 1932/33 (Athletic beating Real Madrid in the
    cup final), 1960/61 (Atlético beating Real Madrid), 1967/68 (Barcelona beating 
    Real Madrid) and 1970/71 (Barcelona beating Valencia).
    
    Switching Shadow
    When Barcelona won their first double, 1951/52, Athletic were league runners-up
    while Valencia lost the cup final.  Next season, Barcelona won the double again,
    now with Valencia as league runners-up and Athletic as cup final losers.
    
    All or Nothing
    The two teams that most often won the cup while finishing runners-up in the
    league are Barcelona and Atlético, both on 4 occasions.  As Barcelona are both
    record cup winners (24 cups) and record runners-up (20 times), that is not
    surprising for them, but Atlético won the cup on 'only' 9 occasions while they
    finished runners-up 8 times.  So almost half the times they won the cup, they
    were second in the league, while exactly half the times they were league 
    runners-up, they consoled themselves with the cup.
    
    Triple champions including Europe
    None
     
    Double champions including Europe
     
     3 FC Barcelona:  League + C3 (1959/60)
                      League + C1 (1991/92)
                      Cup + C2 (1996/97)
     3 Real Madrid:   League + C1 (1956/57)
                      League + C1 (1957/58)
                      League + C3 (1985/86) 
     1 Valencia:      League + C3 (2003/04)
     1 Real Zaragoza: Cup + C3 (1963/64)
     
    Most frequent combination: League + C3 and League + C1 
     
    The season 1961/62 is the “almost perfect” Spanish European performance: 
    C3 is won by Valencia against Barcelona (Spanish final), while Atletico 
    de Madrid wins C2. Real Madrid achieves Spanish “Doblete” but loses the 
    epic final against Benfica in Amsterdam. A good chance for being Triple 
    Champions at home and abroad.
    

    Argentina 'Doubles'

    No regular cup tournament has been held in Argentina though various cup like competitions existed in the past. On those tournaments, we can say that:

    a) Competencia, Estímulo, Suecia and Campeonato Nacional cups were the
       main cups.
    b) Honor, República, Centenario cups could be computed as league cups.
    c) Ibarguren and Oro have not been computed because they were played
       with only 2 participants, so they are as supercups.
    d) Also, cups played with less than 90 minutes by match have not been
       computed (Escobar, Asistencia Pública).
    
    Under these premisses, the following clubs can be considered to have
    won league-and-cup doubles in Argentina:
    
    Alumni                  1907, 1909
    Boca Juniors            1919, 1926, 1976
    Independiente           1926
    River Plate             1932, 1975, 1979
    San Lorenzo de Almagro: 1972
    
    Note that winning Apertura and Clausura tournaments in one season is not
    considered a double win as both are league tournaments.
