UEFA Youth League History
The UEFA Youth League was introduced at the start of the 2013-14 season.
Barcelona, inspired by the talents of their famous La Masia academy, won the first tournament. Moroccan footballer Munir, now of Sevilla, scored 11 goals en route to their success, including two in the final against Benfica.
Perennial FA Youth Cup winners Chelsea won the next two in 2015 and 2016 in what were breakthrough seasons for both Tammy Abraham and ex-Liverpool frontman Dominic Solanke.
Since then, the trophy has been shared around by red Bull Salzburg (2017), Barcelona (2018), Porto (2019), and, lastly, Real Madrid (2020). Last season's tournament was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Liverpool U-19s have competed in the competition on four occasions, advancing to the Round of 16 on three occasions and to the quarter-finals once.
The 2017-18 and 2019-20 tournaments were breakthrough years for local talent Curtis Jones.
