Namesakes:  In keeping with tradition, all Milton Soccer Champions League Teams are named after real UEFA Champions League Clubs.  This year's clubs are:
  • Ajax Amsterdam:  That's pronounced "Eye-Ax" by the way.  Ajax is a Dutch professional football club based in Amsterdam. Historically, Ajax (named after the legendary Greek hero) has been the most successful club in the Netherlands, with 33 Eredivisie titles and 18 KNVB Cups. It has continuously played in the Eredivisie, the Dutch football top division, since its inception in 1956 and, along with Feyenoord and PSV, it is one of the country's "big three" clubs that have dominated that competition.
  • Bayern Munich:  Bayern is historically the most successful team in German football, as they have won the most championships and the most cups. They are also Germany's most successful team in international competitions, having won eleven trophies. Bayern is one of only five clubs to have won all three major European competitions and also the last club to have won the European Cup (Champions League) three times in a row, entitling them to wear a multiple-winner badge during Champions League matches.
  • Borussia Dortmund:  "Bo-ROO-see-ah" is a German sports club based in Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia (Borussia is the Latin equivalent of Prussia). The football team is part of a large membership-based sports club with more than 145,000 members, making BVB the second largest sports club by membership in Germany.

  • Celtic FC:  Based in Glasgow, Scotland, Celtic have won the Scottish league championship on 48 occasions, most recently in the 2016–17 season, the Scottish Cup 37 times and the Scottish League Cup 16 times. The club's greatest season was 1966–67, when Celtic became the first British team to win the European Cup (Champions League), also winning the Scottish league championship, the Scottish Cup, the League Cup, and the Glasgow Cup. Celtic also reached the 1970 European Cup Final, and the 2003 UEFA Cup Final.

They also lost in the 1976 UEFA Cup Final to the same opponents. Club Brugge holds the European record number of consecutive participations in the UEFA Europa League (20), the record number of Belgian cups (11) and the record number of Belgian Supercups (14).
