UEFA Youth League: On January 27, Shakhtar and Dynamo will meet their first rivals in the 2020/2021 season
The next draw of the UEFA Youth League will take place in the playoffs. The draw for the first round of the tournament will take place this Wednesday, January 27 (the ceremony will start at 13.00 pm Kyiv time).
This draw will consist exclusively of single-match relegations, which will begin with the 1/32 final. The tournament starts on March 2-3. The competition will end with the final stage, which will be hosted by the Kolovre Stadium in Nyon from May 17 to 20.
As always, the UEFA Champions League will be followed by the teams of 32 clubs that took part in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. The national champions will be followed by the winners of the national youth championships of the 32 best associations in the UEFA rankings, who did not get into the Champions League Path. In the stages of the 1nd and 32/1 finals, the teams will follow two different paths, which will then unite in the 16/1 finals.
Pairs of the 1/32 and 1/16 finals will be formed by blind draw. The UEFA administration can form several groups on a geographical basis so that teams do not have to travel long distances. As for the Champions League Path, the UEFA administration guarantees that clubs from the same association will not make one pair during the draw.
Representatives of Ukraine will take part in the tournament. Shakhtar (Donetsk) and Dynamo Kyiv will follow the path of the Champions League.
