The 2012–13 UEFA Champions League was the 58th season of Europe's premier club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the 21st season since it was renamed from the European Champion Clubs' Cup to the UEFA Champions League.

The final was played at Wembley Stadium in London, England. Though this was just two years after hosting 2011 Final, the competition final returned to Wembley in recognition of 150 years since the formation of the English Football Association, the world's oldest football association. This is the seventh occasion Wembley Stadium (current and old) has hosted the Champions League final. Bayern Munich, which had finished runner-up last year, won by defeating Bundesliga rival Borussia Dortmund 2–1 on an 89th minute goal by Arjen Robben. This was Bayern's tenth final, their first European Cup title in twelve years, and their fifth overall. This was the fourth final to feature both teams from the same league, having occurred previously in 2000, 2003, and 2008, and the first all-German final.

The defending champions Chelsea were eliminated in the group stage, thus becoming the first team to leave the competition as title holders at this stage. They went on to become the first team to win the Champions League and UEFA Europa League in consecutive seasons at the 2013 UEFA Europa League Final.


Association team allocation

A total of 76 or 77 teams will participate in the 2012–13 Champions League, from 52 UEFA associations (Liechtenstein organizes no domestic league competition). Associations are allocated places according to their 2011 UEFA league coefficients, which takes into account their performance in European competitions from 2006–07 to 2010–11.

Below is the qualification scheme for the 2012–13 UEFA Champions League:

  • Associations 1–3 each have four teams qualify
  • Associations 4–6 each have three teams qualify
  • Associations 7–15 each have two teams qualify
  • Associations 16–53 each have one team qualify (excluding Liechtenstein)
  • The winners of the 2011–12 UEFA Champions League, i.e., the title holder, are given an additional entry if they do not qualify for the tournament through their domestic performance; however, because of the restriction that no association can have more than four teams playing in the Champions League, if the title holder is from the top three associations, this additional entry will come at the expense of the fourth-placed team of their association

If the title holder also qualifies for the Champions League through domestic performance, the following changes to the default allocation system above will be made.

If the title holder qualifies for the group stage
  • The champion of association 13 (Belgium) are promoted from the third qualifying round to the group stage.
  • The champion of association 16 (Switzerland) are promoted from the second qualifying round to the third qualifying round.
  • The champions of associations 48 (Malta) and 49 (Northern Ireland) are promoted from the first qualifying round to the second qualifying round.
If the title holder qualifies for the play-off round (non-champions)
  • The third-placed team of association 6 (Portugal) and the runners-up of association 7 (Russia) are promoted from the third qualifying round to the play-off round

Because of the restriction that no association can have more than four teams playing in the Champions League, if the title holder is from the top three associations (England, Spain, Germany) and finishes outside the top four in their domestic league, the fourth-placed team of their association, which would have entered in the Champions League play-off round, will be moved from the Champions League to the Europa League. In this case, the allocation system for the Champions League will be changed in the same way.

If the title holder qualifies for the third qualifying round (champions)
  • The champion of association 16 (Switzerland) are promoted from the second qualifying round to the third qualifying round.
  • The champions of associations 48 (Malta) and 49 (Northern Ireland) are promoted from the first qualifying round to the second qualifying round.
If the title holder qualifies for the third qualifying round (non-champions)
  • The third-placed team of association 6 (Portugal) are promoted from the third qualifying round to the play-off round
    • If the title holder is the third-placed team of association 6, the runners-up of association 7 (Russia) are promoted from the third qualifying round to the play-off round
If the title holder qualifies for the second qualifying round
  • The champions of associations 48 (Malta) and 49 (Northern Ireland) are promoted from the first qualifying round to the second qualifying round.
