The UEFA Champions League is widely considered to be the most prestigious club competition in football. Taking place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the year and in parallel with the leagues of Europe, elite football clubs claw at the chance to line up week after week for their moment in the spotlight as they compete against the best of the best. With the capacity to make and break a season, a Champions League trophy stands alone as a surefire way for players and managers to engrave their name into football royalty and accomplish what so few manage throughout their careers.



As the most valuable trophy at club level, the Champions League competition is only open to the elite teams of Europe who manage to successfully qualify for the tournament. Qualification for the Champions League tournament depends on both individual league levels and table positions at the end of a season. In some countries like England, the top three teams at the end of the season are automatically added to the Champions League roster – with the fourth-placed team battling it out with other clubs through both qualifying rounds and play-off rounds.

Once all 32 teams are accounted for, the Champions League begins with a knock-out stage consisting of eight groups of four teams each. The top two teams in each of the groups will then qualify for the knockout stages of the competition, in which they must progress through a round of 16, quarter-final and semi-final stage in order to reach the Champions League final.

Success in this competition is a crowning achievement for any club that takes part. La Liga’s Real Madrid enjoy the most victories in the competition, having won it a staggering 13 times, Italy’s AC Milan comes in second with seven victories in the competition, while Bayern Munich and Liverpool have both got their hands on the Champions League trophy six times each.
