Minor issue being it's not a European city :p

In terms of additions to the list: Luxembourg City isn't what immediately comes to mind as a 'major' capital, but is very important for its financial/banking sector and is one of the de facto capitals of the European Union, and would present a real challenge!

It's quite interesting what criteria people use to define "major" =) Lets go for top 14 by population (because it's easily available on Wikipedia...):

Previous CL-winning teams in parenthesis.

Only EU-countries:
1. London (Chelsea)
2. Berlin
3. Madrid (Real Madrid)
4. Rome
5. Paris
6. Bucharest (Steaua Bucharest)
7. Vienna
8. Warsaw
9. Budapest
10: Prague
11. Sofia
12. Brussels
13. Stockholm
14. Amsterdam (Ajax)

Missing on the list if all of European countries is considered:
Moscow
Kyiv
Minsk
Belgrade (Red star Belgrade)

So a potential list of missing clubs could be:

Herta BSC (Berlin)
Lazio (Rome)
Roma (Rome)
PSG (Paris)
Austria Vien (Vienna)
Legia Warsaw (Warsaw)
MTK Budapest (Budapest)
Ferencvaros (Budapest)
Ujpest (Budapest)
Budapest Honved (Budapest)
Sparta Prague (Prague)
Levski Sofia (Sofia)
Lokomotiv (Sofia)
Anderlecht (Brussels)
AIK (Stockholm)
Djurgården (Stockholm)
Hammarby (Stockholm)
CSKA Moscow (Moscow)
Spartac Moscow (Moscow)
Dynamo Moscow (Moscow)
Arsenal Kyiv (Kyiv)
Dinamo Minsk (Minsk)

Anyone want to go for CL with Hammarby or Ferencvaros?

hmm Vienna & Warsaw should really come in to it then but how come Moscow doesn't show as a European Capital? 

 

I'm wanting 5 so would you go PSG, Hertha Berlin, Lazio, CSKA or Spartak Moscow, Austria or Rapid Vienna???

If a team from Ankara won the Turkish league they'd play in the European Cup so I'd include them. Same goes for Beitar Jerusalem. Both big cities.

By your logic, Europe shares land borders with China and North Korea, and is only about 2.5 miles away from the United States.

UEFA's logic.

Got to admit it would be interesting to see a team bordering China play in the Europa on a Thursday night :D

I think FC Kairat (from Almaty, Kazakhstan) is currently holds the record for the furthest UEFA destination (from all clubs who have qualified). 

FC Luch-Energia, from the Russian pacific port of Vladivostok would be the furthest journey. They're currently back in the Russian 2nd tier - so it might be some time before they will challenge for a European spot.

Minsk is the 10th largest city in Europe but never won any European silverware

Not the biggest of capitals, but Oslo, Norway.

Vålerenga is the only sensible option at the moment, although you could go lower league and play with Lyn or Skeid. Or KFUM if they're even in the game.
