Champions League schedule
Champions League tournament format
The tournament has several different preliminary and qualifying rounds, but the real fun begins in the group stage with 32 teams. Clubs are divided equally into eight different groups, with teams seeded before the draw. Each team plays its group opponents in a home and away round-robin format.
The group stage is traditionally played from September to December and is held over six match days. Teams from the same nations are also split up to ensure parity. After the group stage, the UCL progresses to the knockout phase, which usually begins in February and is contested by 16 clubs.
The 16 teams who finished as the top 2 in each group advance and play matches over 2 legs. Those who finished in third place in their group enter the UEFA Europa League. The knockout phase begins with the round of 16 and sees the 8 group winners seeded against the 8 runners-up.
At this point, teams still can’t be drawn against clubs from the same country or who were previously in their group. Then from the quarter-finals onwards, there are no restrictions on who will play each other through to the semi-finals and final.
When is the UEFA Champions League final?
The final will be held on 28 May 2022 at Gazprom Stadium in Saint Petersburg, Russia. It is the home ground of Russian club FC Zenit.
