How can I follow the UWCL draw?
Stay tuned for real-time updates on Chelsea Women’s draw on our official social media platforms. You can catch the entire draw live on UEFA’s official website, streaming from midday (UK time).
When and where is the UWCL draw?
The draw for the 2023/24 Women’s Champions League group stage is set to take place on Friday, October 20th, at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland. It’s an important event to determine the groups and kick off the competition.
Who can Chelsea Women play in the group stage of the UWCL?
Chelsea is one of the top-seeded teams this year. We earned this status by being champions of one of the top four European leagues. The other top seeds are Lyon, Bayern Munich, and the current champions, Barcelona. Since we’re all top seeds, we won’t have to play against these strong teams in this stage.
In the upcoming draw, we will be paired with one team from each of the other three pots. And the best part is that with no other English clubs left, there are no further restrictions on our draw. So, it’s an exciting time for Chelsea in the Women’s Champions League!
