How will the draw take place in the new format?

  • At the draw stage, the group selec­tion sys­tem was can­celed: all teams will play 8 match­es accord­ing to the Swiss sys­tem. Thus, UEFA decid­ed to elim­i­nate dupli­cate match­es.
  • The sched­ule will be formed as the tour­na­ment pro­gress­es: the oppo­nent will be select­ed based on the avail­able results: instead of 96 games, 144 match­es will be played.
