New Champions League season

The road to the second UEFA Champions League final in three years at Wembley Stadium begins on Monday when the draw is made for the first and second qualifying rounds in Nyon.

Six teams will be in the initial stage, played in the first two weeks of July, and 31 other sides come in for the second qualifying round including FC Basel 1893, who made the round of 16 last season. The third qualifying round and play-offs follow as 17 further clubs come into contention for ten available places in the group stage alongside the 22 automatic entrants.

Among that number are all four English contenders: Manchester City FC, Manchester United FC, Arsenal FC and holders Chelsea FC. It will be at Wembley that the tournament concludes on Saturday 25 May 2013, making a swift return to the 2011 final venue to mark the 150th anniversary of the English Football Association.
