With the Champions League 2017 Final already decided to take place in Wales' Principality Stadium, due to the sheer importance of the event, we at StubHub have departed from our usual style of maps and will be aiming to replicate the official sections offered (hence Cat 1, Cat 2, etc). Of course with under a year still to go, the map's sections are sure to vary a little so if you're a stickler for location, we advise you to wait a little (though don't wait too long as you may end up without).

Recently, UEFA made headlines with the organisation finally changing the way teams are seeded! While previous tournaments relied on the UEFA coefficient system (a system in which previous Champions League/Europa League results are taken into account). The new current system is based heavily on “sporting merit” and takes into account the performance in a team’s own domestic league, as well as their performance in previous UEFA tournaments.
This may have come as a blow to teams like Arsenal and Manchester United (whose top-seed status comes from their high UEFA coefficient) however we will get the chance to see new, talented teams demonstrate how good they really are. Suffice to say, the change makes for more exciting football, as more deserving teams now get the chance to prove their metal!

As you can see Real Madrid certainly hold the record for most Champions League trophies, and there's certainly speculation regarding whether the team can achieve the fabled back-to-back Champions League trophies! Needless to say, with the Champions League featuring not only Real Madrid once again, but also runner-ups and neighbouring-rivals Athletico Madrid, Europa League winners and fellow rivals Barcelona, and an even more determined Bayern Munich (not to mention the 28 teams all eager to see Real Madrid fall) this is not going to be an easy path, making the Champions League 2016/17 season one of the most exciting yet!
