What is the Champions League?
The Champions League is an annual club football competition organised by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) with the top-division European clubs competing for the title. These include representatives from the Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1, and La Liga, among others. The Champions League is considered to be one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world (certainly in European football).
The current format sees the Champions League begin in late June with a preliminary round, three qualifying rounds and a play-off round - all played over two legs. The six winning teams enter the group stage, joining 26 teams who qualified in advance. These 32 teams are then drawn into eight groups of four teams and play each other in a double round-robin system. The eight group winners and eight runners-up proceed to the knockout phase, culminating in the final match around May/June. The Champions League winner qualifies for the following year’s Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
