  • The Champions League is the most prestigious tournament in European soccer
  • Thirty-two teams will enter the group stage of the competition in September
  • Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are among the favorites

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.

Real Madrid are the most successful team in the history of the European Cup/Champions League. The Spanish giants dominated the early years of the competition, triumphing five years on the bounce between 1956 and 1960. 

AC Milan are second on the list with seven successes, followed by Bayern Munich and Liverpool on six apiece.

A total of 22 clubs from 10 countries have won the European Cup/Champions League. England has provided the largest number of individual winners, with six clubs having triumphed, but the might of Real Madrid means Spain has supplied the most victors with 18.

Juventus have finished as runners-up more often than any other team, with seven defeats in the final. Atletico Madrid have reached three finals without ever lifting the trophy.

Nottingham Forest and Porto are the only clubs to have a 100 percent record in the final after competing in more than one of them.
