Origins and inaugural matches
Originally known as the European Champion Clubs Cup, the European Football League came into existence as a result of a merger between various leagues around Europe, such as the Challenge Cup, contested by clubs in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the Mitropa Cup, played by central European clubs. After much debate to conceive a continent-wide competition, it eventually came into being in Paris, 1955. Footballing giants Real Madrid CF took home the first ever title after a gripping 4-3 defeat over Stade de Reims, with important goals from the Argentine icon Alfredo Di Stéfano, who became a vital part of the club's domination of European football throughout the late '50s. Real Madrid went on to win another four consecutive titles before their run was broken by Portugal's Benfica in 1961. Ever since its beginnings, the European Football League has provided drama, excitement and historical memories to sports fans not just in Europe, but around the world.
