Competition format

According to the current format, the Champions League qualifying draw is divided into the two parts — the Champions Path and the League Path. The former involves the domestic champions only, and the latter is for the remaining qualifiers’ participants. As the League Path is much smaller, the first two qualification rounds involve only the Champions Path teams.

The preliminary stage is a two-round mini-competition, which involves only 4 leagues’ winners (countries 52-55 in the UEFA rankings). The champion of this tournament advances to the 1st round, where it joins the next 31 participants (winners from countries 20-51). Starting from this stage, participants on both paths play in pairs. Every pair meets twice, switching the hosts’ and the guests’ roles.

The 2nd Champions League qualifying round involves 20 clubs in the Champions Path. These are the winners of the previous round (16 clubs), and the 4 national winners (countries 16-19). In the League Path, this stage involves only 4 participants (the silver medalists of the countries 12-15). All winners of this stage’s ties come to the 3rd round. There are some new entrants, too: 2 league winners in the Champions Path (countries 14-15) and the 5 runners-up in the League Path (countries 7-11). Moreover, the bronze medalist of the 6th country also joins the qualification in the 3rd round (in the League Path).

The playoff stage is the last Champions League qualifying round. In the playoff, the new entrants come only to the Champions Path (2 league winners from countries 12-13). Along with the 6 previous round’s winners, they play out the 4 group stage berths. In the League Path, there are only 4 playoff participants (previous round winners), half of which actually qualify.
