Champions League History

History of UEFA Champions League

The UEFA Champions League was introduced in 1992, replacing the European Champion Clubs Cup. The European Champion Clubs Cup was formed in 1955, following several attempts to initiate such a tournament in Europe. 16 teams participated in the European Cup's first edition in 1955-56, and the cup was won by Real Madrid. Real Madrid won the four next seasons as well, achieving five consecutive titles, a record which no team has broken since. Before 1992, the competition was open only to the champion club of each country. However, the formation of UEFA Champions League brought about the addition of a group stage, which allowed several clubs from each country to participate instead of just the champions. Europe's strongest national leagues are allowed to enter up to four teams (five teams beginning in the 2015-16 season). To date, 22 different clubs have won the Champions League title, with 12 of them winning it more than once.

The Most Successful Clubs in Champions League History

Real Madrid has won the most titles in the Champions League – a total of 10 times. Real Madrid has won the competition in 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1966, 1998, 2002, and 2014. Other dominant clubs are Milan, with 7 titles (most recently in 2007); Bayern-Munich, with 5 titles (most recently in 2013); Barcelona, with 5 titles (most recently in 2015); and Liverpool, with 5 titles (most recently in 2005).

Greatest Scorers in the Champions League's History

Two players are tied for the title of top scorer in the UEFA Champions League: Lionel Messi of Barcelona, and Cristiano Ronaldo who has played for both Manchester United and Real Madrid, have both scored a record 77 goals.
