Template:Infobox international football competition

The 2019–20 UEFA Women's Champions League is the 19th edition of the European women's club football championship organised by UEFA, and the 11th edition since being rebranded as the UEFA Women's Champions League.

The final will be held at the Viola Park in Vienna, Austria.[1] For the first time, the video assistant referee (VAR) system will be used in the competition, where it will be implemented in the final.[2]

Lyon are the defending champions, having won the previous four editions.

The competition was postponed indefinitely on 17 March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe.[3] The final, originally scheduled to take place on 24 May 2020, was officially postponed on 23 March 2020.[4] A working group was set up to decide the calendar of the remainder of the season.[5]

Association team allocation[edit source | edit]

The association ranking based on the UEFA women's country coefficients is used to determine the number of participating teams for each association:[6]

  • Associations 1–12 each have two teams qualify.
  • All other associations, should they enter, each have one team qualify.
  • The winners of the 2018–19 UEFA Women's Champions League are given an additional entry if they do not qualify for the 2019–20 UEFA Women's Champions League through their domestic league.

An association must have an eleven-a-side women's domestic league to enter a team.

Association ranking[edit source | edit]

For the 2019–20 UEFA Women's Champions League, the associations are allocated places according to their 2018 UEFA women's country coefficients, which takes into account their performance in European competitions from 2013–14 to 2017–18.[7][8]

Distribution[edit source | edit]

Unlike the men's Champions League, not every association enters a team, and so the exact number of teams entering in the qualifying round (played as mini-tournaments with four teams in each group) and knockout phase (starting from the round of 32, played as home-and-away two-legged ties except for the one-match final) cannot be determined until the full entry list is known. In general, the title holders, the champions of the top 12 associations, and the runners-up of highest-ranked associations (exact number depending on the number of entries) receive a bye to the round of 32. All other teams (runners-up of lowest-ranked associations and champions of associations starting from 13th) enter the qualifying round, with the group winners and a maximum of two best runners-up advancing to the round of 32.[9]

The following is the access list for this season.[10]

Qualifying round[edit source | edit]

The draw of the qualifying round was held at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland on 21 June 2019, 13:30 CEST.[65] The 40 teams were allocated into four seeding positions based on their UEFA women's club coefficients at the beginning of the season.[66] They were drawn into ten groups of four containing one team from each of the four seeding positions. First, the ten teams which were pre-selected as hosts were drawn from their own designated pot and allocated to their respective group as per their seeding positions. Next, the remaining 30 teams were drawn from their respective pot which are allocated according to their seeding positions.[10]

In each group, teams played against each other in a round-robin mini-tournament at the pre-selected hosts. The ten group winners advanced to the round of 32 to join the 22 teams which received a bye. The matches were played on 7, 10 and 13 August 2019.
