The UEFA Champions League is the most glamorous club competition in world football.
This tournament brings together the greatest teams in the world.
As the financial clout of club football has grown, it has managed to supersede international football. In terms of the quality of play on the field, the Champions League is now the best tournament there is.
Although the pure knockout form of the original European Cup is still missed, the re-branding as the Champions League has helped turn Europe into football’s most financially powerful continent.
There is no club competition to match the Champions League.
