The Grimaldi Forum in Monaco was the scene for the 2018/19 Champions League draw and it has left us with plenty to look forward to. The 2018-19 Champions League group stage kicks off on Tuesday, September 18, including Tottenham Hotspur’s encounter with Inter Milan and the duel between last year’s beaten finalists Liverpool and Neymar’s Paris Saint-Germain.

The 2018-19 Champions League group stage kicks off on Tuesday, September 18, including Tottenham Hotspur’s encounter with Inter Milan and the duel between last year’s beaten finalists Liverpool and Neymar’s Paris Saint-Germain.
There are staggered kick-off times: The Champions League has always started at 8.45pm (CET) but from the 2018/19 season they will kick-off at either 6.55pm or 9pm – similar to how the Europa League functions.
The Champions League final will be at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid – the home of Atlético Madrid. Perhaps for the penultimate time in Europe after the 2020 final, which takes place in Istanbul. The London Evening Standard claims that the Champions League final could be held in New York City for the first time in its history. So, let us answer the main question: Where to watch Champions League this season?
