The UEFA Executive Committe has approved a new format for the 2020/21 UEFA Youth League due to existing difficulties in organising the competition and the reluctance of minor players to travel in the current context.

The competition will feature a straight knockout format from the round of 64. It will start in March 2021 with final details to be approved by the UEFA Executive Committee in due course.
