UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE HISTORY IN BRIEF
UEFA Champions League, which we usually prefer calling the Champions League, is an annual cup competition put together by Union of European Football Associations [UEFA] for top football clubs across Europe.
The Champions League kicked off in the year 1955, and it wasn’t until 1992 that the tournament was rechristened from the European Cup or European Champions’ Cup (officially European Champion Clubs’ Cup) to Champions League.
Until recently, i.e. the 2013-14 season to be précised, that was the first time the tournament allowed teams from the same city to feature.
Same clubs faced each other again in 2016 final, and in 2000 season, two Spanish teams battled in the final, however, they were from different cities.

From the inception of the Champions League, Real Madrid is the club who has won the title the most, after being crowned 13 times including the introductory competition in 1956. The other three clubs who have come close to Real are AC Milan (7), FC Bayern München (5), as well as Liverpool who has the same record as Bayern, winning it five times too.
