UEFA Champions League

    As the name suggests, this tournament is organized by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), Some may not know that UEFA is also the governing body for futsal (soccer, indoor only, played in gymnasiums, with fewer players, but with very similar rules) and beach volleyball. Although the name includes the word Europe, it also includes countries such as Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey, Kazakhstan, and Russia, as the borders between Europe and Asia are not uniform for all organizations and regions. Conversely, Monaco is not a member.
