When is the 2022/2023 UEFA Champions League?

The draw for the preliminary round is due to be held on June 7, 2022 with the two semi-finals taking place on June 21, 2022 and the final following on June 24, 2022.

The draw for the first round qualifiers takes place on June 14, 2022 which will see a total of 30 teams playing.

The seeding of the teams will be based on their 2022 UEFA club coefficients.

The second qualifiers draw will be held on June 15, 2022.

A total of 24 teams will play before being split into two groups: the League and Champions Path.

The third qualifying round draw will take place on July 18, 2022.

The play-off round draw will follow on August 1, 2022 with the group stage draw taking place later that month on August 25, 2022.

This draw will see the teams seeded into four pots (each with the eight teams).

When is the 2023 UEFA Champions League final?

The 2023 UEFA Champions League final will be held at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey on June 10, 2023.

It was originally scheduled to take place at Wembley Stadium in London but it was relocated following the postponement and changes to the 2020 final due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In response to the pandemic, the subsequent finals were pushed back a year.

The 2021 final which was to be held in Istanbul had to be relocated due to the pandemic, so it will now host the 2023 final.

The 2023 winners will earn the right to play against the winners of the 2022–23 UEFA Europa League in the 2023 UEFA Super Cup.
