Serious question. As an American, with little exposure to Soccer (Football), can you explain to me all the different leagues? I see more and more TV coverage here in the States, and don't know the difference between all the leagues.

Biere.

The tournament consists of several stages. In the present format, it begins in mid-July with three knockout qualifying rounds and a play-off round. The 10 surviving teams join 22 seeded teams in the group stage, in which there are eight groups of four teams each. The eight group winners and eight runners-up enter the final knockout phase, which culminates with the final match in May. The winner of the UEFA Champions League qualifies for the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
