UEFA is the governing body in European Football and it stands for The Union of European Football Associations. Basically it overseas all the different leagues competitions that operate in all of Europe. The name Champions League was created based on brining all the different Championship club teams from their respective countries into one club competition tournament. That's why you see Real Madrid, Man City, Bayern Munich and many more domestic league champions compete in this tournament.
As you can guess qualifying for the champions league every season is something very prestigious and can earn a club a lot of money just for qualifying so the competition is intense. Depending on which league you play in your club has to either win, finish in the top two, three or four of your domestic league to qualify. Some leagues aren't as strong as others and even if you win your league you still have to go through a couple qualifying rounds to get in.
