The first official sticker collection of the Champions League has been released by Panini for the season 1999/2000. The album includes only 18 teams of the 32 participating to the first group stage. The collection is pretty simple and it does not include club badges or shining stickers. For each team there are 17 stickers displaced over two pages: the team photo and 16 players. Teams are shown following the group order.
The competition has been won by Real Madrid with a 3-0 (Morientes, McManaman, Raul) in a final against Valencia. At that time there were two group stages, the first with 32 teams divided in 8 groups and the second with the 16 qualified teams divided in four groups. The knock-out phase started with the quarter-finals with the teams qualified from the second group phase.
