Who are the Champions League winners? I have made a list of them from inception (1956) to date. But before we get to see who the UEFA Champions League Past winners are, let’s see how it all begun.

Established in 1955, the UEFA Champions League is open to the league champions of all UEFA member associations as well as to the clubs finishing from second to the fourth position in the strongest leagues.

In the beginning, it was only the champions of their respective national league and the defending champion of the competition that were allowed to take part.

However, in 1997 all that changed to allow the runners-up of the stronger leagues to compete too.

Not until in 2005, the defending champion of the UEFA Champions League did not automatically qualify until the rules were changed to allow title holders Liverpool to enter the competition.

Teams that have won the UCL three times in a row, or five times, on the whole, receive a multiple-winner badge.

Twenty-two clubs have so far won the Champions League or European Cup as it used to be called before the tournament was renamed in the 1992–93 season.

Real Madrid is the only club that has won the UCL the most, having won it 13 times, including the introductory competition.

They have also won the tournament the most times in a row from 1956 to 1960.

Juventus hold the record with the club that has appeared most as runners-up, losing seven finals.

Atlético Madrid is another club that has reached the finals of the competition thrice without having won the trophy, while Reims and Valencia have both finished as runners-up two times without winning the UCL.

Real Madrid are the current UEFA Champions League winners, beating Liverpool 3-1 in the 2018 final.
