2013–14 UEFA Champions League

The UEFA Champions League is a seasonal association football competition established in 1955.[1] The UEFA Champions League is open to the league champions of all UEFA (Union of European Football Associations) member associations (except Liechtenstein, which has no league competition), as well as to the clubs finishing from second to fourth position in the strongest leagues.[2] Prior to the 1992–93 season, the tournament was named the European Cup.[1] Originally, only the champions of their respective national league and the defending champion of the competition were allowed to participate. However, this was changed in 1997 to allow the runners-up of the stronger leagues to compete as well.[3] The defending champion of the competition did not automatically qualify until the rules were changed in 2005 to allow title holders Liverpool to enter the competition.[4]

Prior to 2009, if a team won the UEFA Champions League three times in a row, or five times overall, they were allowed to keep the European Champion Clubs' Cup and a new one was commissioned.[5] Five teams earned this privilege; Real Madrid, Ajax, Bayern Munich, Milan and Liverpool.[6] However, since 2009, the original trophy, which is presented to the winners on their victory, is retained by UEFA, with a full-size replica produced for that season's champions.[7]

A total of 22 clubs have won the Champions League/European Cup. Real Madrid hold the record for the most victories, having won the competition nine times, including the inaugural competition. They have also won the competition the most times in a row, winning it five times from 1956 to 1960. Benfica, Juventus and Bayern Munich have been runners-up the most times, each losing five finals whilst Stade de Reims and Valencia are the only two clubs to have finished runners up twice but never won it. Spain has provided the most champions, with thirteen wins from two clubs.[8] Italy have produced 12 winners from three clubs and England have produced 12 winners from five clubs. English teams were banned from the competition for five years following the Heysel disaster in 1985.[9] The current champions are Bayern Munich, who beat Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium in 2013.
