Some history

There is a brand-new name on the UEFA Champions League trophy after Chelsea FC's victory against FC Bayern München made them the first maiden winners since Borussia Dortmund's triumph 15 years ago.

Chelsea are the tenth club to have won the trophy once and the 22nd overall in the pantheon of European Cup winners. In beating Bayern the Londoners became the first new winners of the trophy since the 1990s when, coincidentally, Munich provided the stage for the triumphs of Olympique de Marseille (1993) and Dortmund (1997) – albeit at the Olympiastadion, Bayern's former home.

The 1980s were a particularly fruitful decade for teams to claim their sole European Cup success with Aston Villa FC (1982), Hamburger SV (1983), FC Steaua Bucureşti (1986) and PSV Eindhoven (1988) all triumphant. FK Crvena zvezda followed suit in 1991.

Celtic FC got their hands on the trophy back in 1967 and reached the final again three years later, but lost out to Feyenoord who therefore secured their only success.

First European Club

Chelsea FC's victory against FC Bayern München makes them the first London club to win the European Cup – and only the sixth side from a capital city to have lifted the trophy in the 57-year history of the competition.

In London's Olympic year it was third time lucky for the city after previous final defeats for Arsenal FC, losers against FC Barcelona in 2006, and Chelsea themselves when beaten by Manchester United FC two years later.

Madrid leads the way as the European capital with most wins thanks to Real Madrid CF's nine triumphs – more than any other club. Victorious in each of the first five editions, the Spanish giants also triumphed in 1966, 1998, 2000 and 2002.

Amsterdam is next on the list thanks to AFC Ajax's titles in 1971, 1972, 1973 and 1995, while SL Benfica's 1961 and 1962 wins mean Lisbon has two cups.

Romania's capital, Bucharest, joined the list in 1986 when FC Steaua Bucureşti lifted the trophy, while Belgrade followed suit with FK Crvena zvezda's success in 1991. Other capital clubs to make losing appearances in finals were Belgrade's FK Partizan (1966), Athens' Panathinaikos FC (1971) and AS Roma (1984).
