Altstadt

Altstadt is the German language word for "old town", refers to the historical town or city centre within the old town or city wall, in contrast to younger suburbs outside. Neustadt, the logical opposite of Altstadt stands for a part of the "Altstadt" in modern sense, sometimes only a few years younger than the oldest part, e. g. a late medieval enlargement. Most German towns have an Altstadt though the ravages of war have destroyed many of them during the Thirty Years' War. In the War of the Palatinian Succession of 1688, the order to Brûlez le Palatinat! was executed by Mélac, devastating many cities and large parts of South Western Germany, like the Heidelberg Castle. Allied Strategic bombing during World War II destroyed nearly all large cities, with the exception of Regensburg and Heidelberg. Many smaller towns remained intact, for example Bamberg, Passau, Tübingen, Dinkelsbühl, Quedlinburg and Wismar; some Altstadt parts in Freiburg, Rothenburg ob der Tauber and others have been restored.

But most destroyed. Important old towns like those of Hildesheim, Frankfurt and Pforzheim were lost or only reconstructed in limited areas. Recent efforts of Altstadt reconstructions can be found in Dresden and Frankfurt.

2015 AFC Champions League

The 2015 AFC Champions League was the 34th edition of Asia's premier club football tournament organized by the Asian Football Confederation, the 13th under the current AFC Champions League title. Guangzhou Evergrande won the tournament after defeating Al-Ahli in the final. Guangzhou qualified for the 2015 FIFA Club World Cup. Western Sydney Wanderers were the defending champions; the AFC Competitions Committee proposed a revamp of the AFC club competitions on 25 January 2014, ratified by the AFC Executive Committee on 16 April 2014. The member associations are ranked based on their national team's and clubs' performance over the last four years in AFC competitions, with the allocation of slots for the 2015 and 2016 editions of the AFC club competitions determined by the 2014 rankings: The top 24 member associations as per the AFC rankings are eligible to receive direct slots in the AFC Champions League, as long as they fulfill the AFC Champions League criteria. In both the East and West zones, there are a total of 12 direct slots in the group stage, with the 4 remaining slots filled through play-offs.

The top six MAs in both the East and West zones get direct slots in the group stage, while the remaining MAs get play-off slots: The first- and second-ranked MAs each get three direct slots and one play-off slot. The third - and fourth-ranked MAs each get two play-off slots; the fifth-ranked MAs each get one direct slot and two play-off slots. The sixth-ranked MAs each get one play-off slot; the seventh- to twelfth-ranked MAs each get one play-off slot. The maximum number of slots for each MA is one-third of the total number of clubs in the top division; the AFC Competitions Committee finalised the slot allocation for the 2015 and 2016 editions of the AFC Champions League based on the criteria, including AFC's MA rankings and the implementation of club licensing regulations, on 28 November 2014. Notes The following 49 teams from 21 associations entered the competition. In the following table, the number of appearances and last appearance count only those since the 2002–03 season, when the competition was rebranded as the AFC Champions League.

TH means title holders. Notes The schedule of the competition was as follows; the bracket for the qualifying play-off, which consisted of three rounds, was determined by the AFC based on the association ranking of each team. Each tie was played as a single match, with the team from the higher-ranked association hosting the match. Extra time and penalty shoot-out were used to decide the winner; the winners of each tie in the play-off round advanced to the group stage to join the 24 automatic qualifiers. All losers in each round which were from associations with only play-off slots entered the 2015 AFC Cup group stage; the draw for the group stage was held on 11 December 2014. The 32 teams were drawn into eight groups of four. Teams from the same association could not be drawn into the same group; each group was played on a home-and-away round-robin basis. The winners and runners-up of each group advanced to the round of 16. TiebreakersThe teams are ranked according to points. If tied on points, tiebreakers are applied in the following order: Greater number of points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned.

If this procedure does not lead to a decision, criteria 6 to 10 apply. In the knockout stage, the 16 teams played a single-elimination tournament, with the teams split between the two zones until the final; each tie was played on a home-and-away two-legged basis. The away goals rule, extra time and penalty shoot-out were used to decide the winner. In the round of 16, the winners of one group played the runners-up of another group in the same zone, with the group winners hosting the second leg; the draw for the quarter-finals was held on 18 June 2015. Teams from different zones could not be drawn into the same tie, there was no seeding or country protection, so teams from the same association could be drawn into the same tie. In the semi-finals, the matchups were determined by the quarter-final draw. In the final, the finalist from the West Zone hosted the first leg, while the finalist from the East Zone hosted the second leg. Guangzhou Evergrande won 1–0 on aggregate; the AFC selected the following 11 players.
