Where was the Champions League group stage held in 2012?

Teams from the UEFA Champions League group stage in 2012-13. On August 30th, 2012, the group stage draw was place in Monaco. The 32 clubs were divided into four pots based on their 2012 UEFA club coefficients, with Chelsea automatically placed in Pot 1. The other English teams were drawn into three groups of eight teams.

The group stages began on September 13th and ended on November 19th. Each group winner will be determined by a knockout tie between all group winners, with the exception of Pot 2 which only has four teams and so the two best runners-up will advance. The matches will be played over two legs; if scores are equal after regulation time has been played, then extra time will be used to determine the winner. If scores still remain tied after extra time has been played, a penalty shoot-out will be used to determine the winner.

The last 16 ties will be played in January and February 2013. These matches will also be two-legged, with the away goals rule applying after 90 minutes have been played. If scores are level at the end of normal time, the match will proceed directly to a penalty shoot-out.

Spain's victory also means that they will face Germany in the second round. The match will be played on June 16 at Stade de France in Paris. Germany won the last meeting between these two countries 2-0 back in November 2009.

When was the draw for UEFA Euro 2004?

The group stage draw was held on November 30, 2003, at the Pavilhao Atlantico in Lisbon, Portugal, with the 16 finalists divided into four groups. The UEFA national team coefficient was used to determine pot allocations, which assessed teams' performance in 2002 FIFA World Cup qualification and UEFA Euro 2004 qualifying. Teams were seeded according to their 2001 UEFA country coefficients, with France, Germany, Italy, and Spain each given rankings of 1–4. Teams from the same country could not be drawn against each other.

In addition to the four group winners, which automatically qualified for the final tournament, the remaining 12 countries entered into two separate qualifying rounds to determine the remaining spots in the final standings. These rounds were played over a three-year cycle, with the final round scheduled for 2008. For political reasons, Russia could not enter until 2006 even though it had become a member of UEFA in 1992. Additionally, Ukraine and Belarus did not become full members until late 1999 and early 2000 respectively. However, since both countries are considered as Europe's last communist states, they were allowed to participate under a neutral flag. Despite this, neither nation managed to qualify for the final tournament.

Ukraine finished third in its group after losing all three matches, while Belarus failed to win any of its games and was eliminated from contention during the last year of the cycle. As a result, neither country was permitted to replace them, leaving Russia as the only former Soviet republic to have never reached the final tournament.

Where was the draw for the European Cup in 1957?

On Tuesday, July 23, 1957, the preliminary round draw was conducted at the offices of the French Football Federation in Paris. Real Madrid earned a bye as the defending champion, while the remaining 23 clubs were divided into three pots based on geography. Clubs from the same country could not be drawn against each other, but teams from different countries could be paired up.

For the first time since the inception of the European Cup, there were no British clubs in the tournament. This was due to concerns over the safety of its players after five members of the English team died during the previous season. The deaths of players on foreign soil prompted the English football federation to call off the tour until further notice.

The preliminary round draw was done by former France international footballer Charles Drago. The winner of this stage would advance to the quarter-finals. If two or more teams were tied after their matches had finished, then a tiebreaker match would be played at a predetermined location. For example, if A and B are the only tied teams, then game 1 will be played at stadium A, game 2 at stadium B, and so on until a winner is found. If none of these games result in a victory, then a penalty shoot-out will determine the winner.
