UWCL Draw Information

UWCL Draw Information

It may only seem like yesterday when Lauren Davidson scored the winner against Rangers but the 2023/24 season will start to take shape on Friday with the draw for the First Round of the 2023/24 UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Glasgow City enter the Champions Path and will be seeded for the draw.

Here is all the information you need to know about Friday’s draw in Nyon.

The draw procedure

The teams in the Champions Path have been split into two pots based on their club UEFA Co-efficient. The teams will then be drawn into 11 groups with each group having two seeded teams and two unseeded team to make up two semi finals with the winners of each meeting in a final. However, due to their being an odd number of teams, there will be three groups made up of two seeded teams and one unseeded team. In those groups, the highest ranked seeded team based on the UEFA Club co-efficient will be automatically put through to the final.

Glasgow City are in the seeded pot and will face a team from the unseeded pot in the semi final with another seeded team playing another unseeded in a second semi final within our group. If Glasgow City were to be placed into a three team group, we would receive a bye straight to the final unless the other seeded team is St Polten.

The draw will start with seeded teams being placed into semi finals starting in semi final 1 in Group 1 followed by semi final 2 in the same group. This will continue until the three team groups where the first seeded team will be drawn into the semi final spot with the second seeded team being drawn and the team with the higher club co-efficient being placed directly into the final.

There are three combinations of nations that can’t be placed into the same group. These are Ukraine with Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina with Kosovo and Kosovo with Serbia.

The matches will be played at the venue of one of the four teams in the group. The host will be communicated after the draw.
