The UEFA Champions League is one of the world's major sport events that attracts fans from all over the world. The quarter finals are beginning this week with some exciting match lineups.

A main problem however for many football fans worldwide is the limited availability of the event on local TV stations which is especially true if the heart beats for a foreign country club. Also true for anyone interested in the Champions League who is not living in Europe.

While the event is broadcasted in nearly all countries, you usually only get to watch some of the games on TV.

The only viable alternative if TV stations are not broadcasting the Champions League at all or only one of the games is to watch it online.

The website One Tip A Day have updated their Watch Champions League Free article in time for the quarter finales. The guide concentrates on the TV streaming software Sopcast which offers an English interface and is generally easy to use.

The article offers a couple of tips that aid new users and offers information on how to obtain the channel names that stream the Champions League games. Additional information about Sopcast, the recently reviewed Sopcast Filter or PC TV options are available here on Ghacks as well. Only one question remains: Which team is your favorite this year?

Update: Things have shifted to web-based solutions quite a bit in recent time. While you can still use programs such as Sopcast to view matches online, the majority of streaming offers for football matches, Champions League and other sport events is now web-based.

Good news in this regard is that you do not need to install special software to watch football online, all you need is a web browser and the Flash plugin which is freely available.

I suggest you take a look at our list of football sites that offer schedules for upcoming matches so that you do not miss a single match. While you can find schedules days and weeks in advance, you will find that actual streams are only displayed half an hour before matches to avoid that other sites copy and paste the stream urls.

    A great website for football
    There you have direct links to the games and the schedule of all the sports that you can watch over the internet.
    Also if you cannot install anything in your PC (at the office or if you have Unix or linux with no root privileges)
    Try justinTV.
