The Champions League is the biggest club competition in soccer. Launched in 1955 as the European Cup, it has been held on an annual basis ever since.

Until 1992, the European Cup was a straight knockout tournament that featured only the champions of domestic leagues. 

It underwent a rebrand in 1992, becoming known as the Champions League. A year earlier, a group stage had been introduced for the first time, although it was originally used as the last phase before the final.

The Champions League is the pinnacle of the European club game. The World Cup might still have more prestige, but the Champions League is widely considered to be home to the highest quality soccer on the planet.

Champions League 2023/24 Winner Odds

The odds for the Champions League winner 2023/24 winner have now been taken down after the tournament came to an end on Saturday 1 June.

Real Madrid were the favorites to win the Champions League with the best online sportsbooks ahead of the showpiece match at Wembley Stadium. They did not perform at their best against Borussia Dortmund, but they found a way to come out on top. Goals from Dani Carvajal and Vinicius Junior gave Madrid a 2-0 victory.

Dortmund can look back with pride on their campaign, which saw them finish top of the group of death before eliminating PSV, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in the knockout phase. But they must have kicked themselves immediately after the final, in which BVB missed a host of presentable opportunities.

Madrid have now won the Champions League for a record-extending 15th time. For context, the next top-performing club in the competition, AC Milan, have lifted the trophy on seven occasions. Madrid truly are kings of the continent in Europe.
