How the draw works

Champions path

• Teams eliminated in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League will be seeded.

• The balls containing the names of the seeded teams will be placed in one bowl and the balls containing the unseeded sides will be put into another bowl. One ball will be taken from each bowl and placed in a large empty bowl in the middle, where they will be shuffled. The first team drawn will play at home in the first leg.

Main path

• The clubs will be split into two pots, seeded and unseeded, in accordance with the club coefficient rankings established at the beginning of the season. As the third qualifying round ties are not played before the draw, the coefficient of the club with the higher coefficient of the two clubs involved in an undecided tie was used for the purposes of the draw.

• Teams may be further divided into groups with an equal number of seeded and unseeded teams. All the clubs would then be randomly assigned a number, for example 1–4 for the seeded teams and 5–8 for unseeded teams. The balls containing the numbers of the seeded teams will be placed in one bowl and the balls containing the unseeded sides will be put into another bowl. A ball is taken from each bowl and placed in an empty bowl, where they are shuffled. The two balls are opened with the first number drawn designated as the home team for the first leg. The result applies to all groups containing the same number of teams. The same procedure is carried out with the remaining balls to complete the pairings.

• Teams from the same association cannot be drawn against each other. Further restrictions will be announced before the draw.

What happens next?

Ties take place on 18 and 25 August, with extra time and a penalty shoot-out if required after the second leg.

Winners advance to the UEFA Europa Conference League group stage, where they will be joined by sides transferring from the UEFA Europa League play-offs.
