Each club is responsible for submitting to UEFA an A list of players (List A) and a B list of players (List B), duly signed by the club and verified, validated and additionally signed by its association. These lists must include the surname and first name, date of birth, shirt number and name, nationality and national registration date of all players to be fielded in the competition, as well as the surname and first name and coaching qualifications of the head coach and first assistant coach. In addition, the lists must include confirmation by the club’s doctor that all players have undergone the requested medical examination; the club’s doctor is solely responsible for ensuring that the requested players’ medical examination has been duly performed.


No club may have more than 25 players on List A during the season.


List A has to be submitted online by the following deadlines:

  1. 22 July 2021 (24.00CET) for all matches in the preliminary round;

  2. 12 August 2021 (24.00CET) for all matches in round 1;

  3. 26 August 2021 (24.00CET) for all matches in round 2;

  4. 30 September 2021 (24.00CET) for all further matches from the first match in the group stage up to and including the final.


For the preliminary round, round 1 and round 2, a club may register a maximum of two new eligible players on List A after the above-mentioned deadlines. Such registration must be completed by 24.00CET on the day before the start of the mini-tournament or relevant first-leg match and the club’s association must confirm in writing that the new player is eligible to play at domestic level at this time.


If the registration of such a new player causes the number of players on List A to exceed 25, the club must remove a currently registered player to reduce the squad to 25 players again.


Each club is entitled to register an unlimited number of players on List B during the season. The list must be submitted by no later than 24.00CET on the day before the match in question.


A player may be registered on List B if she is born on or after 1 January 2000 and has been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since her 15th birthday by the time she is registered with UEFA, or a total of three consecutive years with a maximum of one loan period to a club from the same association for a period not longer than one year. Players aged 16 may be registered on List B if they have been registered with the participating club for the previous two years without interruption.


Each club must include at least two goalkeepers on List A and at least three in total (List A and List B combined).
