European Cup & Champions League: The Illustrated History (Hardback)

Keir Radnedge


The UEFA Champions League celebrated its diamond jubilee in 2015. The first match - in what was the European Champion Clubs' Cup - was played on 4 September 1955, when Sporting Lisbon played Partizan Belgrade. The Yugoslavs advanced to the next round by winning 8-5 on aggregate, but lost to the eventual champions, Real Madrid, giving the first glimmering of the Spanish club's legendary status. Real have won the Champion Clubs Cup/UEFA Champions League (the competition was rebranded in 1992) ten times, three more successes than their nearest rival, Milan. Fully updated, European Cup & Champions League: The Illustrated History covers every season's competition with a full report and statistical summary of the Final up to, and including, the 2015 final in Berlin. There are specially commissioned interviews with a football legend from each decade from the 1950s to the present. The book also includes a full statistical section, listing every result and all major record-holders, both club and individual.
