UEFA Champions League Final 2014
The 2014 UEFA Champions League Final will be the final match of the 2013–14 UEFA Champions League, which is the 59th season of Europe's premier club football tournament organised by UEFA. It will be played at the Estádio da Luz in Lisbon, Portugal on the 24th of May 2014. The UEFA Champions League is structured into three qualifying rounds, one play-off round, group stages and four knock-out rounds.
During the three qualification rounds and play-off stages, teams will play two matches against each other on a home-and-away basis. The club which scores the greater aggregate of goals qualifies for the next round, with away goals and then penalties used to decide the winner if there is a draw.
The ten winners from the play-off rounds – five from the best-placed path and five from the champions path – will join 22 automatic entrants in the 32-team group stage. Clubs are then divided into eight groups of four teams, who play home games and away games against each of their pool opponents between September and December to decide which two teams from each section advance to the first knock-out round. Teams who come third-place in each group will enter the UEFA Europa League round of 32.
From the last 16 until the semi-finals, clubs will play two matches against each other on a home-and-away basis with the same rules as the qualifying and play-off rounds applied. In the last 16, group winners will play runners-up other than teams from their own pool or nation, while from the quarter-finals on the draw is free.
The final is decided by a single match. So why not experience The 2014 UEFA Champions League Final this May in Lisbon, Portugal? It will be one of the most prestigious stadiums in the world. The atmosphere will be incredible.
