Starting in 2008, the tournament is now held in two locations. The best two teams from each tournament then compete in the European Champion Cup "Final Four", with the winner receiving the European Champion Cup.

Between 2013 and 2015, the "Final Four" format was replaced with a best-of-three series between the winners of each tournament. In the 2015 tournament, six teams competed in the Paris group, while six other teams competed in Rotterdam. The best two teams then competed in the "Final Four" in Italy, in a best-of-three series, for the championship.

From 2016, a new format has been introduced with an 8-team knockout tournament and two new tournaments for lower-level teams, the CEB Cup and the Federations Cup.

The first season of the tournament was held in 1963 and was won by the Picadero Jockey Club Barcelona.
