About the UEFA Champions League.
Europe’s most eagerly anticipated football event started out life as the European Champion Clubs’ Cup or European Cup in 1955, a year when football was still rather primitive compared to today’s standards (think of tough-to-kick hand-stitched leather footballs now considered vintage and for sale in auction houses as nostalgic relics of the past). At the time, there had been many calls for a grander football competition. You had the Mitropa Cup and the Latin Cup, of course, but these competitions focused on a limited number of teams from specific parts of Europe and could not really be compared to the prestigious, almost mythical championships organised by the South American Confederation, for example.
The process was accelerated when Gabriel Hanot, editor of the French football paper L’Equipe, responded to a claim in the Daily Mail in December 1954 that the Wolverhampton Wanderers were now ‘world champions’ after having beaten Budapest Honvéd FC and Spartak Moscow. Hanot challenged them in print to try and play clubs such as AC Milan and Real Madrid and see how they fared then. This idea spread quickly among European football lovers and, aided by the enthusiasm of L’Equipe and the authority of UEFA, came to life almost overnight with the creation of the tournament we know today.
Perhaps one of the most well-known elements of Champions League matches today is the anthem entitled “Champions League”, which is an adaptation of George Frideric Handel’s “Zadok the Priest”. Featuring the three UEFA languages – English, German and French – the song is played prior to each UEFA Champions League Game and is invariably a triumphant moment that you should witness live at least once if you are a real football fan.
