All matches are played in accordance with the UEFA Match Calendar (see Annex C). These dates are final and binding on all concerned, subject to the provisions of Paragraph 23.01 to Paragraph 23.03. The following principles apply to this competition:

  1. UEFA Champions League matches are played on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with the exception of the final, which is played on a Saturday.

  2. From the play-offs onwards, the UEFA administration decides which UEFA Champions League matches are to be played on Tuesdays and which on Wednesdays on the basis of the relevant draw. As a rule, each club plays the same number of matches on a Tuesday and on a Wednesday. Matches within the same group are played on the same day. Exceptions to this rule can be made by the UEFA administration.
