Champions League is the best
The Champions League is an annual soccer cup competition that is organized by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) for the top football clubs in Europe.
It was called the European Cup from the time it was first held, in the 1955-56 season, until 1992 when it was renamed the Champions League. More than 50 national football associations across Europe are under the umbrella of the UEFA, the governing body of European football that is headquartered in Nyon, Switzerland.
The FIFA World Cup may be more encompassing – the winner is the best in the world -- but the Champions League brings together the greatest teams in the world for the best quality of play on the soccer field.
Many believe the Champions League has helped turn Europe into football’s most financially powerful football continent. Even though Brazil has the most World Cup wins, Champions League members, Germany, Italy, Spain, France and England are not far behind in World Cup wins.
The Champions League Cup has changed a bit since it was known as the European Cup, including the addition of several member countries located in Asia.
In its present structure, the road to the Champions League Cup starts with 32 teams (the European Cup started with eight); 22 get automatic berths as league winners. The rest of the 50-some teams must battle it out in qualifiers for the remaining 10 slots.
A complicated coefficient ranking system determines a team’s place in the tournament.

Champions League Anthem
One of the most famous backdrops for the Champions League Cup is its anthem.
It was written by British composer Tony Britten, a graduate of the Royal College of Music, after being commissioned by the league in 1992.
Britten's piece, with lyrics that mix elements of English, French and German, is performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and sung by the Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields Chorus.
The UEFA Champions League anthem is playing during the opening ceremony at all games. It is also played during all UEFA Champions League broadcasts.
The music is so protected that it cannot be legally purchased or downloaded from any website.
The UEFA Champions League trophy cup is 29 inches tall and weighs and weighs 16 pounds.
The cup has to be returned before the next tournament unless a club wins the Champions League three years in a row. At that point, the team is given a full-size replica of the cup to keep. Five clubs have earned their own cup: Real Madrid, Ajax, Bayern Munich, Milan and Liverpool.
The trophy was designed and made – in 340 hours -- by Jürg Stadelmann in Berne, Switzerland, after narrowing down options to a design that was hoped to appeal to all the countries involved.
