How does the Women's Champions League knockout draw work?

  • In the quarter-finals, the four group winners are seeded and drawn against the four group runners-up, though no group winners can meet the runners-up from their own group. The group runners-up will play the first legs at home. There is no country protection.
  • For the semi-final draw, four balls are prepared: Winners of Quarter-final 1, Winners of Quarter-final 2, and so on. The draw is without restriction, with the first team drawn in each tie playing the first leg at home.
  • A final draw is made for administrative purposes between the Winners of Semi-final 1 and Winners of Semi-final 2.

Draw procedure

Quarter-finals

  • The four balls containing the names of the group runners-up are placed in one bowl and the four balls containing the names of the group winners are placed in another bowl.
  • A ball is drawn from the bowl with the group runners-up. The team drawn is placed as the home team in the quarter-final 1 tie. A ball is then drawn from the bowl with the group winners. The team drawn is placed as the visiting team to complete the quarter-final 1 tie.
  • The same procedure is repeated to designate the remaining three quarter-final matches.
  • If a group winner is drawn against the runner-up from the same group, the group winner is moved to be the visiting team in the next tie and another group winner is drawn to complete the current tie.
  • Another group runner-up is then drawn to complete the next tie as the home team. Should a clash be possible when drawing the last two ties, the teams will be drawn and will be assigned to the ties.

Semi-finals

  • At this stage of the competition, no teams are seeded and there is no country protection. The balls containing slips of paper 'winners of quarter-final 1' to 'winners of quarter-final 4' are placed in the central bowl and shuffled.
  • The first and the second ball drawn designate the first pairing of the semi-finals. In addition, the first ball drawn designates the home team for the first leg.
  • The same procedure is repeated to designate the second semi-final pairing.

Final

  • The two balls containing slips of paper 'winners of semi-final 1' and 'winners of semi-final 2' are placed in the central bowl and shuffled.
  • The first team drawn determines the 'home' team for the final.

Eindhoven's PSV Stadium will stage the 2023 UEFA Women's Champions League final at 16:00 CET on Saturday 3 June.

First opened in 1910, the 35,000-capacity PSV Stadium has a long history of hosting major matches, including the UEFA Cup finals of 1978 (second leg) and 2006, the second leg of the 1988 UEFA Super Cup and three games at UEFA EURO 2000.

On 6 April 2018, 30,238 fans at the home of PSV Eindhoven watched the Netherlands beat Northern Ireland on the way to the FIFA Women's World Cup, a record crowd for any UEFA-organised women's qualifier. On 1 June 2019, a then Dutch record women's football attendance of 30,640 saw the Netherlands face Australia in a friendly at the stadium.
