FC Copenhagen are the most successful side from Denmark to have featured in the Champions League and regularly attend the competition each season as they qualify via the domestic route. The club, who are also known as FC Kobenhaven, play their matches at the Telia Parken Stadium, which becomes an incredibly lively place as 38,065 fans wait with anticipation to see their side welcome some of the biggest football teams in the world to their ground.
The Danes have seen men such as Brede Hangeland, Christian Poulsen, Sibusiso Zuma, Dame N’Doye and Jesper Gronkjaer all feature for them over the years, as did Robert Skov.
FC Copenhagen have had a number of respectable campaigns in the Champions League when they have been a part of the tournament. Having represented Denmark on no fewer than 14 occasions, FC Copenhagen have managed to reach the group stage in four separate editions.
The Danes have also been able to get to the Round of 16 in the 2010/11 campaign, however they were unable to progress after meeting Chelsea in the round.
In truth, though, FC Kobenhaven have struggled to get past the qualifying stages for the group stages though, as the side have come up against some extremely tough opponents in recent years. Nonetheless, they can continually boast to host Champions League matches at the Telia Parken Stadium on a consistent basis.
There have been some memorable moments that the Scandanavians will be able to recall upon with fond memories, including wins against Celtic and Manchester United in the 2006/07 competition, a 1-0 win against Galatasaray and a 1-1 draw with Juventus in 2013/14, whilst there was a 1-1 draw with FC Barcelona in the 2010/11 edition.
The 2016/17 Champions League campaign went extremely well for FC Copenhagen as well, as they were only beaten once in a group containing Leicester City (0-1), FC Porto and Club Brugge.
