The 2019–20 UEFA Women's Champions League was the 19th edition of the European women's club football championship organised by UEFA, and the 11th edition since being rebranded as the UEFA Women's Champions League.

The competition was postponed indefinitely on 17 March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe.[1] The final, originally scheduled to be played on 24 May 2020 at the Generali Arena in Vienna, Austria,[2] was officially postponed on 23 March 2020.[3] On 17 June 2020, UEFA announced that the remaining matches, including the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final, would be played between 21 and 30 August at San Mamés, Bilbao and Anoeta Stadium, San Sebastián in Basque Country, Spain behind closed doors, as an eight-team single-match knockout tournament, with San Sebastián hosting the final.[4][5][6]

Lyon were the defending champions, having won the previous four editions. They successfully defended their title after defeating VfL Wolfsburg 3–1 in the final for their fifth consecutive and seventh overall title.[7] For the first time, the video assistant referee (VAR) system was used in the competition, where it was implemented in the final.[8]

Association team allocation[edit]

The association ranking based on the UEFA women's country coefficients is used to determine the number of participating teams for each association:[9]

  • Associations 1–12 each have two teams qualify.
  • All other associations, should they enter, each have one team qualify.
  • The winners of the 2018–19 UEFA Women's Champions League are given an additional entry if they do not qualify for the 2019–20 UEFA Women's Champions League through their domestic league.

An association must have an eleven-a-side women's domestic league to enter a team.

Association ranking[edit]

For the 2019–20 UEFA Women's Champions League, the associations are allocated places according to their 2018 UEFA women's country coefficients, which takes into account their performance in European competitions from 2013–14 to 2017–18.[10][11]

Distribution[edit]

Unlike the men's Champions League, not every association enters a team, and so the exact number of teams entering in the qualifying round (played as mini-tournaments with four teams in each group) and knockout phase (starting from the round of 32, played as home-and-away two-legged ties except for the one-match final) cannot be determined until the full entry list is known. In general, the title holders, the champions of the top 12 associations, and the runners-up of highest-ranked associations (exact number depending on the number of entries) receive a bye to the round of 32. All other teams (runners-up of lowest-ranked associations and champions of associations starting from 13th) enter the qualifying round, with the group winners and a maximum of two best runners-up advancing to the round of 32.[12]

The following is the access list for this season.[13]

Qualifying round[edit]

The draw of the qualifying round was held at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland on 21 June 2019, 13:30 CEST.[70] The 40 teams were allocated into four seeding positions based on their UEFA women's club coefficients at the beginning of the season.[71] They were drawn into ten groups of four containing one team from each of the four seeding positions. First, the ten teams which were pre-selected as hosts were drawn from their own designated pot and allocated to their respective group as per their seeding positions. Next, the remaining 30 teams were drawn from their respective pot which are allocated according to their seeding positions.[13]

In each group, teams played against each other in a round-robin mini-tournament at the pre-selected hosts. The ten group winners advanced to the round of 32 to join the 22 teams which received a bye. The matches were played on 7, 10 and 13 August 2019.

Knockout phase[edit]

Each tie in the knockout phase, apart from the final, is played over two legs, with each team playing one leg at home. The team that scores more goals on aggregate over the two legs advance to the next round. If the aggregate score is level, the away goals rule is applied, i.e. the team that scores more goals away from home over the two legs advances. If away goals are also equal, then extra time is played. The away goals rule is again applied after extra time, i.e. if there are goals scored during extra time and the aggregate score is still level, the visiting team advances by virtue of more away goals scored. If no goals are scored during extra time, the tie is decided by penalty shoot-out. In the final, which is played as a single match, if the score is level at the end of normal time, extra time is played, followed by penalty shoot-out if the score remains tied.[9]

The mechanism of the draws for each round is as follows:

  • In the draw for the round of 32, the sixteen teams with the highest UEFA women's club coefficients are seeded (with the title holders being the automatic top seed), and the other sixteen teams are unseeded. The seeded teams are drawn against the unseeded teams, with the seeded teams hosting the second leg. Teams from the same association cannot be drawn against each other.
  • In the draw for the round of 16, the eight teams with the highest UEFA women's club coefficients are seeded (with the title holders being the automatic top seed should they qualify), and the other eight teams are unseeded. The seeded teams are drawn against the unseeded teams, with the order of legs decided by draw. Teams from the same association cannot be drawn against each other.
  • In the draws for the quarter-finals and semi-finals, there are no seedings, and teams from the same association can be drawn against each other. As the draws for the quarter-finals and semi-finals are held together before the quarter-finals are played, the identity of the teams in the semi-finals are not known at the time of the draw. A draw is also held to determine the "home" team for the final (for administrative purposes as it is played at a neutral venue).

On 17 June 2020, UEFA announced that due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe, the final stages of the competition would feature a format change. The quarter-finals, semi-finals and final would be played in a single-leg format from 21 to 30 August 2020 in Bilbao and San Sebastián, Spain. The matches were played behind closed doors.[5]

Players of the season[edit]

For the first time, positional awards will be awarded in the Women's Champions League for best goalkeeper, defender, midfielder and forward of the competition. Votes will be cast for players of the season by coaches of the eight teams who participated in the final tournament in Spain, together with 20 journalists selected by the European Sports Media (ESM) group who specialize in women's football. The coaches are not allowed to vote for players from their own teams. Jury members select their top three players, with the first receiving five points, the second three and the third one. The shortlist of the top three players was announced on 17 September 2020.[80] The award winners will be announced and presented during the 2020–21 UEFA Champions League group stage draw in Switzerland on 1 October 2020.
