Next season: Road to Lisbon

The competition will run from 8 August 2013 to the final on Thursday 22 May 2014 at a Lisbon venue to be confirmed, two days before the men's UEFA Champions League decider.

The 2013/14 UEFA Women's Champions League will begin with a qualifying round consisting of mini-tournaments, leading to a 32-team two-legged knockout competition. That will culminate in the final on Thursday 22 May 2014 at a Lisbon venue to be confirmed, two days before the men's UEFA Champions League decider at Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica.

Drawn on 27 June 2013, the size of the qualifying round, running from 8 to 13 August, will depend on the number of entries, with each group to have four teams and be played as a one-venue mini-tournament. In principle, the group winners and possibly one or more of the best runners-up will go forward to join all the remaining entrants in the round of 32.

The rounds of 32 and 16 will be drawn on 5 September and played in the autumn. The draw for the quarter-finals onwards will be made on 21 November with the last eight taking place in March and the semis the following month, prefacing the Lisbon final.

Entries
The winners of the final in London and the champions and runners-up from the eight highest-ranked associations – Germany, France, Sweden, Russia, England, Italy, Denmark and Austria – will enter the 2013/14 in the round of 32 as will the champions from the next ranked associations, the exact number depending on the final total of entries. The champions of the remaining associations enter in the qualifying round.
