2014–15 CERH European League

The CERH European League is an annual club Comité Européen de Rink-Hockey (CERH) and contested by the top ranked teams in European domestic leagues. Since its foundation in 1965, under the name of European Cup, the competition has been dominated by teams from Spain (mainly from Catalonia and Galicia), Portugal and Italy. In 1997, the European Cup and the European Cup Winners' Cup were merged to create the Champions League, whose winners have since been decided in a final tournament contested by the best four to eight teams and held in a single venue. In 2005, the competition name was changed to European League.

The most successful team is Barcelona, who have won a record 20 titles, including eight consecutive between 1978 and 1985. Barcelona are followed by four other Spanish teams, making Spain the most successful country in the competition, with 43 titles. Teams from Portugal have won five titles, while Italy joined the list of European League-winning nations after Follonica's victory in 2006.

The current champions are Barcelona, who beat Porto 3–1 in the 2014 final held at their own ground, the Palau Blaugrana, to secure their first win since 2010 and twentieth overall.
