UEFA Women’s Champions League group stage kicks off
October 5, 2021 - December 16, 2021 - Europe’s new UEFA Women’s Champions League season kicks off on October 5, marking the launch of a new era for women’s football. For the first time, the UEFA Women’s Champions League will kick off with a 16-team group stage, alongside a new brand identity and anthem, with overall prize money quadrupled for the new season.
The 2021-22 UEFA Women’s Champions League is the 21st season of Europe’s primary club football tournament.
Spanish team Barcelona conquered Europe for the first time last season, defeating English Women’s Super League champions, Chelsea, in the final. The victory ended a streak of five successive titles for Lyon, the most successful club in French women’s football, who have won a record 89 matches in the competition.
The season culminates with the final at the Juventus Stadium, Turin on May 22, 2022.
