Champions League: draw, format, fixtures and spectators

The draw for the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League group stages takes place on Thursday. What’s new? What’s changing? An overview.

The spectators

For the first time in about 25 years, standing will be permitted at international matches as part of a pilot effort by UEFA. This will result in a more than 15,000 increase in the stadium capacity at SIGNAL IDUNA PARK for the UEFA Champions League, from 66,099 to 81,365. A season ticket could be purchased with or without the opportunity of attending international matches due to the South Stand’s earlier change from standing to seated. However, all South Stand season ticket holders will now be permitted to go to home Champions League games. This will shortly be the subject of a detailed article that is now being written.Information Guide Nigeria

The format

As usual, eight groups of 32 clubs will compete to determine who will advance to the knockout rounds. The group’s bottom-placed team will be eliminated, while the third-placed team will move down to the UEFA Europa League.

The draw

Following the conclusion of the play-offs on Wednesday night, the last six of the 32 competitors will be known. On Thursday, August 25, at 18:00 CET, the draw for the group stage will take conducted in Istanbul. Four pots will be created from the teams. The champions of the six highest-ranked nations, the defending champions, and the winner of the UEFA Europa League make up Pot 1. Pots two through four are selected by the UEFA club coefficient ranking.

For the first time since the 2013–14 season, BVB is only in pot three for the draw. This means that in addition to facing one of the six best European domestic champions—Real Madrid, Manchester City, AC Milan, Paris St. Germain, Porto, or Ajax—they will also face a player from pot two, which includes Liverpool, Chelsea, Barcelona, Juventus, Atlético Madrid, Sevilla, and Tottenham.

The fixture list

Rather than ending in mid-December as per usual, the group stages will start early and finish on 2 November. There will only be 12 days between the draw (25/08) and the opening matchday (06/09). That will lead to organisational challenges and will require everyone involved to be as flexible as possible. “Fortunately, we now have so much experience and have such a good network that we do not expect any problems when organising travel for the team, sponsors and fans,” said Thomas Hess, the managing director of besttravel.

The fixture list will be condensed due to the winter World Cup, with only a week between games on three occasions.

Matchday 1: 6/7 September
Matchday 2: 13/14 September
Matchday 3: 4/5 October
Matchday 4: 11/12 October
Matchday 5: 25/26 October
Matchday 6: 01/02 NovemberJAMB Result

UEFA will not publish the fixture list on the day of the draw as they have done since 2019, but will instead make the announcement by Saturday evening at the latest (24:00 CET). (br)
