The 2015-2016 edition of the UEFA Champions League is about to start on 15th of September. The defending champions, FC Barcelona, will try to win the second title in a row, something no team has succeeded so far since the new format of the European Champions Clubs’ Cup was introduces in 1992.
Several clubs will fight for the trophy. Real Madrid is looking strong and the new coach, Rafa Benitez, is confident. It is probably the last chance of J.Guardiola to win UEFA Champions League with Bayern Munich. English teams also have their chances. Manchester City has a perfect start in Premier League, Chelsea made some important transfers this summer and Manchester United is simply one of the most important clubs in the World.
Let’s not forget Athletico Madrid, Paris-Saint Germain or Juventus. They have important arguments for getting to the final stages of the competition.
The 2016 UEFA Champions League Final will be played on 28th of May 2016 at the San Siro stadium in Milan, Italy.

In most cases the publicly available channels (free) show only one match per week (usually on Wednesdays), the one that is considered the best option, the most atractive. Paid channels (available in pay-per-view system or in extra packages from your ISP) show most of the matches on both Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Some of these channels are geo-restricted, meaning that they are only available in certain locations.
