You Must Know! Information about the new format for the 2024/2025 Champions League

Complete information about the new format  of the 2024/2025 Champions League . Starting next season there will be big changes in the highest caste of European club competition. There will be more matches, the competition will also be more exciting.

So far the UCL started with the 32 best teams in Europe, but starting next season the number of participants will increase to 36 teams. Next season, starting 2024/2025, UCL will present more matches.

The current Champions League format  has been used for dozens of years. There are a total of 32 participating teams in the group phase, narrowing down to the last 16 in the knockout phase, and so on until the final.

So, starting next season, UEFA will increase the number of participants to 36 teams. The group phase will also be abolished, replaced with a new system that uses a large standings containing all participating teams.

UEFA claims that this format change is necessary so that the Champions League can survive as the best football competition at club level. They want to steal the attention of new audiences, namely young viewers.

Apart from the increase in the number of participants, there are also major changes in the competition format. Next season, the 36 UCL participating teams will be united in one big standings. How does it work?

How Does the New UCL Format Work?

Currently, with the old format, there are six matches, aka 6 matchdays, in the group phase. Each team will face three away matches and three away matches in an effort to win tickets to qualify for the round of 16.

Starting next season, the group phase will no longer exist, replaced by the League Phase. There are a total of eight matches in the League Phase, two more than in the current group phase.

Differences can also be found in the League Phase. Teams are no longer divided into eight groups of four. Next season, all participating teams will be placed in one large standings based on points and goal difference.

So, from this big standings, the top eight teams will qualify directly for the round of 16. Then, 9th to 24th place will play a play-off round to win the remaining eight tickets.

Furthermore, positions 25-36 are certain to be eliminated from European competition, no one will be relegated to the Europa League.

Furthermore, there is still a qualifying route where seven tickets to qualify for the final round are competed. The qualifying round took place as usual, the winning team was determined in a two-leg play-off duel.

The UCL qualifying round starting next season is also called the Champions Path, which is a pathway for league champions who do not automatically qualify for the group phase. Usually from leagues with low coefficients, such as the Greek, Hungarian, Croatian leagues, and so on.

Countries That Get Extra UCL Allotment

As mentioned above, there is a direct qualification for countries whose team representatives performed well in last season’s competition. This extra quota is called the European Performance Spot.

There are two tickets allocated for the European Performance Spot. This season, because the performance of English teams in European competitions (UCL, UEL, UECL) is very poor, they will not get extra places.

Next season, there are two leagues that will get an extra share of UCL tickets, namely the Italian League and the German League. The performance of the Italian teams and German teams in this season’s competition is quite good.

Extra tickets for the Italian League were given to AS Roma, while extra tickets for the German League were given to Borussia Dortmund. So, there are 5 Italian representatives and 5 German representatives in the UCL next season.
