Are Palace the biggest team in the world to not win a Cup or play in Europe?

It's been fairly clear cut that Palace are the biggest team in England to never win a major trophy. The only possible candidates to challenge for this dubious honour are Watford but other than their best ever finish (2nd) being higher than ours (3rd) I think it's fair to say we're a bigger club than them.

Hull are a also a shout but given their lack of top flight appearance for over 100 years, it's hard to argue they're bigger than Palace.

Given Watford had a season in the UEFA Cup following that 1983 2nd place finish, it leaves us with the double distinction of zero trophies and no recognised UEFA appearances (Intertoto not recognised as full UEFA competition as it was simply a qualification tournament to reach the UEFA Cup.

As English football is generally regarded as one of the top 3-4 leagues in the world, does being the biggest team in England to never win a trophy or qualify for Europe by default make us the biggest team in the world to neither play in their continental competition or win a trophy.

I don't know every team in every league (might a Brazilian or Chinese teams I'm unaware of,) so by all means throw in your suggestions.

If we genuinely had won Division 1 in 1979, then all would be well in the world, but alas it was Division 2

Don’t know about the never winning a trophy bit but we are 100% the biggest club in this country never to play in Europe so I suppose when you think about it we must be the biggest club in the continent never to play in a UEFA competition. It’s getting more and more unlikely we ever will now as well with the FA cup runners up no longer getting a Europa League spot.

Villarreal are a decently big club who have been in Europe consistently but never won a major trophy (if you don’t count the Intertoto cup).

Teams to have not won trophies AND not play in Europe though...palace are up there for sure, if not top.

Should be pointed out, Palace have played in the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 1998, but got defeated by Samsunspor, who are geographically an Asian club.
