The clubs progressing from the qualifying round will join the teams given a bye to the round of 32.

There will be two pots in the round of 32 draw: the seeded teams ranked 1-16 by coefficient and the unseeded teams ranked 17-32. Unseeded sides will be drawn against seeded teams, with the unseeded at home in the first leg. No club can play an opponent from their own association or a team from their qualifying round group.

The draw for the round of 16 follows and there are no seeded teams. The 16 balls containing slips of paper for 'Winners of match 1' to 'Winners of match 16' are placed in one bowl and mixed. The first team drawn will play its first match at home against the second team drawn and the same procedure will then be repeated for the other matches. There are no restrictions on the draw.

Road to the final

The UEFA Women's Champions League comprises a qualifying group stage, four rounds of two-legged knockout ties and a one-off final.

Qualifying round
The lower-ranked champion clubs compete in four-team, one-venue mini-tournaments hosted by one of the participants.

Knockout phase
The qualifying round winners join the teams given a bye past that stage in the round of 32. From here on the competition consists of two-legged knockout ties, continuing with the round of 16, quarter-finals and semi-finals played over two legs. If scores are level after 90 or 120 minutes of the second leg, the team with the most away goals wins, otherwise a penalty shoot-out is held.

The final is on 1 June at Cardiff City Stadium, two days before the men's final at the National Stadium of Wales.

Further details, including the criteria for separating teams that finish level on points in a group, can be found in the official competition regulations.
