The Champions League is back. After a tense and thrilling 2020-21 campaign, Europe's top teams are back at it again. 

Much has changed since Chelsea beat Man City to lift the trophy in May. Alongside a dramatic Euro 2020 tournament, we've seen one of the craziest summer transfer windows in recent memory.

Two of the greatest players of all time have been on the move - Leo Messi leaving Barcelona for PSG before Cristiano Ronaldo re-joined Man Utd. Romelu Lukaku has returned to lead the line for Chelsea, while Man City signed Jack Grealish for a British record £100m. 

However, almost as significant is the players that haven't signed for new clubs. Kylian Mbappé links up with Messi after staying at PSG, while Robert Lewandowski has stuck with Bayern despite expressing his desire to leave. Harry Kane has also committed his immediate future to Spurs, but they're in the new Europa Conference League this season.

Here's how you can watch all the Champions League action, wherever you are in the world.

How to watch the Champions League in the UK

BT Sport has exclusive rights to the Champions League in the UK, so you'll need an active subscription in order to start watching.

There are a few options when it comes to signing up to BT Sport, firstly by combining it with BT Broadband. Put your postcode into the website to see what deals are available.

How to watch the Champions League outside the UK

BT Sport is geo-restricted, meaning you can only officially watch its coverage if you're based in the UK.

A workaround is available if you're outside this region, but we'd encourage you to find the the local broadcaster first - especially if you're based there permanently. That's CBS and Univision in the US, Stan in Australia or Sony Pictures Networks in the Indian subcontinent.

However, if you already have an active UK subscription, we'd recommend accessing the BT Sport stream using a VPN. This will allow you to still appear as if you're in the UK and retain access to channels, and it's completely legal. 

NordVPN is one of our top recommendations, but you can check out our best VPN chart, which shows you some of the best services for accessing UK content from abroad.

If you're only planning on using the VPN for the football, you might also want to consider a free VPN. Nearly all will have a UK server, but there may be strict data limits.
