Soccer: AFC Champions League, Champions by Year

Information about the international soccer tournament AFC Champions League including champions by year, logos, links, results and other data.

The domestic champions of the 14 top Asian federations qualify automatically for the tournament, along with the respective cup winners of the same federations. The tournament holders receive a bye into the quarter-finals. The qualifying teams are split on a regional basis into seven groups of four teams. The teams play each other home and away, and the top team from each group qualifies for the quarter-finals, where they join the reigning holders. The quarter-finals, semi-finals and final are played on a home-and-away basis in the format of a knockout competition.
