The Women’s Champions League will adopt a new league phase format from the 2025-26 season.
Currently 16 teams are split into four groups but from 2025-26 campaign onwards, 18 teams will compete in one league — playing three home and three away matches before moving into a knockout phase, LiveScore reported.
The changes were approved by UEFA’s executive committee at a meeting in Hamburg on Saturday and will move the competition closer to the new format planned for the men’s Champions League.
From next season, the men’s Champions League will do away with the traditional eight groups of four and replace them with one 36-team league, where teams play four matches at home and four away in a seeded system before moving into the knockout phase.
Further details on the new format will be issued on Monday, UEFA said.
