Women's Champions League 2009/10 details confirmed
« on: March 31, 2009, 12:56:37 PM »
The new UEFA Women's Champions League launches next season and the arrangements for the inaugural edition have been confirmed.

Higher profile
Replacing the current UEFA Women's Cup, which has been running since 2001/02, the UEFA Women's Champions League will showcase the best female clubs in the continent, with more entrants and a high-profile one-off final to be held two days before the men's UEFA Champions League final, in the same city. For the first time, the top eight associations in the ranking will be entitled to two entrants – the winners of their national domestic league as now and also the runners-up.

Extra berths
The top eight ranked nations for 2009/10, based on results obtained in the UEFA Women's Cup between 2003/04 and 2007/08, are Germany, Sweden, England, France, Denmark, Russia, Norway and Italy. The other nations will enter their league champions, while the European titleholders will also gain a berth if they do not qualify through their domestic competition, regardless of whether their association enters one or two clubs.

Calendar
The competition will begin with the qualifying round running from 30 July until 4 August 2009, consisting of a number of four-team mini-tournaments involving the runners-up from the top eight countries and the champions of the lowest-ranked associations. Teams will progress to join the champions of the higher-ranked nations in the Round of 32, with the competition from then on played on a two-legged knockout basis, with the exception of the one-off final. In principle this will be held in Madrid on Thursday 20 May 2010, and in London in 2011. Exactly how many sides will gain byes to the Round of 32, and the quantity of qualifying round groups, will depend on the number of entries. Entries open in April and will be confirmed in June.

Semi-finals
Meanwhile, the 2008/09 UEFA Women's Cup is at its semi-final stage. On Saturday, French league leaders Olympique Lyonnais were held 1-1 by their German counterparts FCR 2001 Duisburg in the first leg of their tie. A day later Russia's Zvezda-2005 beat Umeå IK of Sweden 2-0, with the latter two clubs set to participate in the inaugural UEFA Women's Champions League Round of 32 having won their respective domestic summer leagues last year. Both second legs are on 5 April, with the final played on a home-and-away basis on 16 and 23 May.

It's all well, the Superleague will start at the time of the semi-final round.  ;)
And I guess the FA might have to ask for a dispensation as the winners and runners-up of the domestic League are eligible  ???

I suppose some of the Scandinavian leagues have been doing something similar for years, and with much more success than the English teams.

That was the point I was going to raise. It is the same in the men's league for Russian sides for example.

So the Women's Champions League Final will be coming to town in 2011 :) Would be nice to have an English side make the final.

It looks like an away trip for the Everton supporters who want to see the qualifiers :

Slovenia, Lithuania, Croatia, Macedonia or Cyprus. If they draw Limassol the girls will have plenty of supports from British holidaymakers.

It would be funny if they went back to Lithuania again...not sure I could be bothered travelling this time though I hear Croatia is still quite cheap...also the prospect of City ending up in the same group...
