The official home of Europe's premier club competition on Facebook.
The UEFA Champions League is the world's elite club competition. Football's premier club competition was launched one month after UEFA's first Congress, held in Vienna on 2 March 1955. The major turning point in the evolution of the competition came in the 1992/93 season when the UEFA Champions League, involving a group stage in addition to the traditional knockout elements, was officially inaugurated after a pilot round robin during the previous season. The popularity of the group phase means the competition has grown from eight to 32 teams with matches taking place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays across Europe.
