UEFA stated this was once “to toughen the synergy between league and knockout stages and to supply extra carrying incentives to the league section.” Groups completing best of the 36-team standings would be the No. 1 seed and the ones positioned 2nd to 8th will probably be seeded accordingly within the spherical of 16.
Within the new knockout playoff spherical, groups ranked 9th to sixteenth will probably be seeded. They’ll be drawn in opposition to unseeded groups positioned seventeenth to twenty fourth. The remodeled UEFA codecs will create extra midweek video games. The Champions League is ready to start out completely from Tuesday to Thursday on September 17-19, 2024.
The Europa League may have its unique season release on September 25-26, one week after the Champions League.The Convention League will get started on October 3 and have an unique fit night time on December 19. The league phases within the best two tiers will proceed till January.
