The voting for the People's Lovie runs until 10 October.

• Expert commentary, live photos, statistics, analysis, tactical lineups and heat maps tracking every player's movement in our MatchCentre

• Live pre-match and matchday blog coverage from reporters across Europe

• Exclusive video interviews with the competition's top players and coaches

• Extensive social media presence on Facebook, Twitter and Google+

• Free video highlights of every fixture

• A Matchday Live audio show with commentaries, interviews and debate plus a post-game podcast

• NEW: An extensive history section, with in-depth video features on classic games and a chance to win

The rise of the UEFA Champions League site has been especially marked on social media. The competition's official Facebook page has continued to grow, sailing past 11.8 million likes following the start of this season's group stage. Meanwhile, the @ChampionsLeague Twitter account – launched at the beginning of last season – already has in excess of 2.4 million followers, while users can also keep track of the competition on the recently launched Google+ page and the official UEFA.com YouTube channel.

All Lovie Winners will be announced on 15 October and honoured at the 3rd Annual Lovie Awards Winners Party at LSO St Luke's in London, on 13 November.
