Manchester United Football Club is widely regarded as the most-successful football club in England. As of 2014, the club has captured the Premier League's top division 13 times in its 22-year existence, with five runner-up finishes.

Manchester United is the only English team to win the Premier League three consecutive years, doing so twice, from 1998 to 2001 and 2006 to 2009. Prior to the inception of the Premier League in 1992, the club also boasts seven First Division Championships dating back to 1908. Rival Liverpool is the next closest with 18 league championships, though its most-recent title came in the 1989-1990 season.
