The UEFA Champions League is a football competition between the best club teams in Europe. The teams are selected because of good performances in league matches. The teams used to have to win their countries' championship, but now more teams can qualify.

Real Madrid won the Champions League the first five times it was held, still a record. They have also won the Champions League/European Cup nine times, which is also a record.

The 1st team ever which won the UEFA Champions League and all the other titles was Barcelona, after they beat Manchester United 3-1 in 2011. The current champions are FC Bayern Munich.
