Explanation
The split format introduced in 2009/10 means all teams in the hat are allocated to either the champions route or the league route, with the two sets of clubs kept apart until their potential group stage participation.

The champions route involves the winners of the second qualifying round ties plus the champions from the associations ranked next highest. The sides boasting the best UEFA coefficient are seeded. Five are seeded in the league route, which is made up of the third-placed team from the sixth-ranked member association, plus the league runners-up from the associations ranked 7th to 15th.

Balls containing the seeded clubs will be placed in one bowl, with balls for the unseeded clubs positioned in another. A ball will be taken from each bowl and placed in a large empty bowl in the middle, where they will be shuffled. The first team drawn will play its first match at home, against the second side drawn.
