Who enters when?

• The access list was determined by the UEFA women's association club coefficients at the end of the 2020/21 season.

• The holders and the champions of the three highest-ranked associations (France, Germany and England) enter in the group stage. As Lyon are both title holders and champions of France, the champions of the fourth-ranked association (Spain) also enter in the group stage, meaning Barcelona join Lyon, Wolfsburg and Chelsea.

• The champions of the remaining associations will go into the champions path. The champions of associations ranked 5 to 7 (Sweden, Czech Republic and Denmark) will enter in round 2, with the rest (ranked 8 to 50, with Russia excluded) entering in round 1.

• The runners-up of the six highest-ranked associations (France, Germany, England, Spain, Sweden and Czech Republic) will enter in round 2 of the league path.

• The third-placed teams of those six associations, and the runners-up of the next ten highest-ranked associations (Denmark, Netherlands, Kazakhstan, Italy, Iceland, Norway, Scotland, Switzerland, Belarus and Austria) will enter in round 1 of the league path.
