All matches are played in accordance with the UEFA Women's Match Calendar (see Annex C). These dates are final and binding on all concerned, subject to the provisions of Paragraph 23.03 to Paragraph 24.02.


Matches are played on Tuesdays and Wednesdays or Wednesdays and Thursdays, with the exception of round 1, which is played midweek and on the weekend, and the semi-finals and final, which are played on weekends.


The match dates in the preliminary round and round 2 are fixed by the home clubs and must be entered in the designated UEFA online system by their respective associations by the deadline set. The UEFA administration may alter or confirm dates in accordance with the principles set by the Women's Football Committee.


If one of the clubs involved in a tie in the preliminary round or in round 2 would have to play on the same day its men’s first team plays a UEFA competition match, or if the stadium used by the women’s team is already in use by the men’s first team for a match in the top domestic championship or domestic cup, the clubs concerned, as well as the entities running their domestic competitions, must agree on a new date for the match within the calendar constraints given by UEFA. If no agreement can be reached, the UEFA administration takes a final decision.


The fixtures from the group stage onwards are established by the UEFA administration, who decides which matches are to be played on which days on the basis of the relevant draw. Matches within the same group are played on the same day. Exceptions to this rule can be made by the UEFA administration.
