The 2019-20 Champions League kicks off in early summer, just a few weeks after the curtain falls on the 2018-19 tournament.
Europe's elite will look to nip England's resurgence in the bud after witnessing the Premier League deliver all four finalists for UEFA's club competitions.
Goal brings you everything you need to know about the 2019-20 tournament, including which teams have qualified, fixtures and more.
Which teams have qualified for the 2019-20 Champions League?
The make-up of the 2019-20 Champions League group stage is mostly complete, with around a quarter of the places up for grabs.
You can see the teams that have qualified for the group stage below.

Scottish champions Celtic enter the competition at the first qualifying round, along with teams from nations such as Belarus, Ireland and Norway.
Champions League 2019-20 groups & seeding
The groups will not be known until all 32 group-stage participants are finalised and the draw takes place on August 29.
Teams will be divided into four seeding pots, each featuring eight teams, and the seeding composition will become clearer closer to the draw.
However, we already know that Barcelona, Manchester City, Juventus, Bayern Munich, PSG and Zenit will be in Pot One, along with the winners of the Champions League (either Liverpool or Tottenham) and the Europa League (Chelsea or Arsenal).
When does the 2019-20 Champions League start?
It may come as a surprise to some that the 2019-20 Champions League gets underway less than a month after the 2018-19 final, so there's not actually a huge break between editions.
Of course, it will be a while before the proverbial big guns enter the competition, but Europe's premier club competition returns as early as the end of June.
The draw for the preliminary round takes place on June 11, less than two weeks after the final and fixtures begin on June 25.

Where is the 2019-20 Champions League final?
The 2019-20 Champions League final will take place in Turkey at Istanbul's Ataturk Olympic Stadium.
A 76,000-seater venue, Ataturk Stadium previously staged the Champions League final in 2005, which saw Liverpool pull off a remarkable comeback against AC Milan - dubbed 'The Miracle of Istanbul' - to lift the trophy.
First opened in 2002, it is the biggest football stadium in the country and is home to the Turkey national team, as well as serving as a temporary venue for the likes of Galatasaray, Istanbul Basaksehir, Kasimpasa and Besiktas.
