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 23.04 to Paragraph 24.02.


Matches are played on Tuesdays and Wednesdays or Wednesdays and Thursdays, with the exceptions of round 1, which is played midweek and on the weekend, and the semi-finals and final, which are played on weekends. Exceptions to these rules can be made by the UEFA administration.


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


If all the teams and the entities running their domestic competitions agree, matches in the preliminary round, round 1 and round 2 may be played on alternative dates, provided the matches in each round are completed by the following deadlines:

  1. Preliminary round: 1 August 2024

  2. Round 1: 7 September 2024

  3. Round 2: 26 September 2024


If one of the clubs hosting match(es) in the preliminary round, in round 1 (in case the mini-tournament host is appointed by a draw) or in round 2 would have to play in the same matchweek as its men’s first team plays a UEFA competition match and the same stadium is proposed for use in the UEFA Women's Champions League, 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 (see Paragraph 23.04). 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.
