More to the competition, The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) organizes the UEFA Champions League every year. The competition is played between top-tier European clubs, and it determines the competition winners through a round-robin group stage that qualifies teams for a double-leg knockout format and a single-leg final. The national league champions (and, for certain nations, one or more runners-up) of their national associations compete in one of the most famous football competitions in the world and the most prestigious club competition in European football.
Spanish clubs have the most victories (19), followed by English (14), and Italian teams (12 wins). The most successful teams are from England, where five clubs have won the championship. 22 clubs have won the competition, 13 of which have won it many times, and eight have successfully defended their title.  Real Madrid has won the competition 14 times, including the first five seasons and five of the last nine.
They are the most successful club in the tournament’s history.  Only one team has ever won every game they played in a single tournament to claim the title: Bayern Munich in the 2019–20 campaign. Real Madrid, which defeated Liverpool in the 2022 final by a score of 1-0, is the current champion of Europe.
Since the 2009–10 season, two qualification “streams” for teams that do not get direct entry into the tournament proper have been held prior to the UEFA Champions League’s opening double round-robin group stage of 32 teams. Those who qualified for the two streams did so by winning their league, and teams that qualified by placing second or third in their national championship.
Based on the UEFA coefficients of the member associations, the number of teams that each association enters into the UEFA Champions League is determined. These coefficients are determined by the performances of the clubs that represented each association in the Champions League, UEFA Cup, and Europa League during the preceding five seasons. The higher an association’s coefficient, the more teams represent the association in the Champions League, and the fewer qualification rounds the association’s teams must compete in.
