Yesterday, Saturday, we already told you in MD what will be the future of the Women’s Champions League, which will start in the 2025-2026 season. A new one Champions League which will be accompanied by a second category also announced by UEFA eight days ago and where thirteen clubs will enter directly. These are the third-place finishers in the national leagues of associations ranked 8th through 13th and the runners-up of associations ranked 18th through 24th.
In addition to these clubs, this new competition will continue to be fed by the teams coming from the Champions League, thus offering a new opportunity to the clubs eliminated in the second round before the group stage of the highest continental competition, as well as the runners-up and third-place finishers of the first round tournaments.
The second competition is a direct knockout that will be played parallel to the Women’s Champions League. It will have a total of six rounds, round 1, 2 and then the round of 16, quarterfinals, semifinals and final. All matches will be played over two legs.
So in the first round, in addition to the thirteen clubs mentioned, 11 from the Champions League joined. The twelve winners will advance to the second round where 20 will be added also from the previous rounds of the maximum women’s club competition. From these 32 clubs, 16 will now compete in the round of 16 and from there the winners will go on to progress to the final.
Whoever wins this second tournament will automatically qualify for the second qualifying round of the next edition of the Champions League. The new one is the dispute of the new league that we explained yesterday in MD.
