How to watch 2020/21 UEFA Champions League matches live in Canada
The UEFA Champions League is back and all games are available to watch live in Canada. Here's how you can tune in.
The UEFA Champions League (UCL) is one of the most prestigious tournaments in all of soccer. It determines who’s the best club in Europe and is the trophy every side covets.
Bayern Munich are the defending champions heading into the 2020/21 tournament, defeating Paris Saint-Germain in the final of last season’s coronavirus-impacted competition for their sixth title overall.
Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, Juventus, PSG, Chelsea and Atletico are among the big teams competing for this year’s crown. The tournament has been pushed back about a month due to last year’s delayed finish. The 2020/21 final will be at the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul, the original venue for the 2020 final before that was moved to Portugal.

How to stream soccer
To catch matches of non-English teams from the UCL in their domestic competitions, such as Real Madrid, PSG and Barcelona, you will need to watch via beIN SPORTS.
This leaves you with one of two options. Subscribing to beIN SPORTS directly, which costs $19.95/month or $209.95 for an annual pass. You can also get the channels via fuboTV. Viewers are able to access three beIN SPORTS channels via fuboTV. It costs $15.99/month and also provides additional channels.
Champions League schedule
Champions League tournament format
The tournament has several different preliminary and qualifying rounds, but the real fun begins in the group stage with 32 teams. Clubs are divided equally into eight different groups, with teams seeded before the draw. Each team plays its group opponents in a home and away round-robin format.
The group stage is traditionally played from September to December and is held over six match days. Teams from the same nations are also split up to ensure parity. After the group stage, the UCL progresses to the knockout phase, which usually begins in February and is contested by 16 clubs.
The 16 teams who finished as the top 2 in each group advance and play matches over 2 legs. Those who finished in third place in their group enter the UEFA Europa League. The knockout phase begins with the round of 16 and sees the 8 group winners seeded against the 8 runners-up.
At this point, teams still can’t be drawn against clubs from the same country or who were previously in their group. Then from the quarter-finals onwards, there are no restrictions on who will play each other through to the semi-finals and final.
When is the UEFA Champions League final?
The final will be held on May 29, 2021 at Atatürk Olympic Stadium, Istanbul. This was the original venue for the 2020 final before it was moved to Estádio da Luz in Lisbon as last season’s tournament was completed in Portugal.
