The qualifying round costs each federation 20 000 euros. But Norwegians dont have to worry about that :)

Ah, I see. Better that the federation pays than the club, which is the usual way we do it here...

BIIK 6.3 (might well be a team in pot 3  :o )

The wonders of being a debutant...I hate the seeding system.  :-\

Thanks for the info on Finnish football, by the way. Good luck. :)

I think the club in England pay for everything, but they should get the money that UEFA gives to the association as in the rules.

Apparently the FA has decided to give one place to the FA WSL 2011 winner and one place to the FA Cup 2012 winner.
WTF, hopefully it is not true. I mean the FA WSL winner is decided on such few number of game it is kind of dodgy but to give the other place to the lottery winner.
It is fine to give a chance to everyone but the top club competition should really get the best teams from England, no one who gets lucky with the draw.

The FA has been told off  by UEFA  and gave the 2nd champions League place to Birmingham. My calculation have the Blues at 14.167 as they have no history in the competition...so like Bristol last year unlikely to be seeded.

I do not think Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia have active leagues at the moment?

Speculation (possible hosts with*):
One team from each pot will form a group of four. Hosts can obviously not be in the same group.

Seeded pot 1:

Unia Raciborz Poland (approx. 16 points)
PAOK Greece (15 points)
Glasgow Scotland (18)
Zurich Switzerland (12.9)
*Apollon Cyprus (11.6)
*Dezembro Portugal (11.3)
*Sarajevo Bosnia (10)
Sofia Bulgaria (9.31)

Seeded pot 2:

Zhytlobud Ukraine 9.29
MTK Hungary
(Bobruichanka Belarus 8.4 (if not directly to R32))
*Gintra Uni Lithuania 7.3
*PK-35 Vantaa have around 7
Tel Aviv Israel 6.5
Cluj Romania 6.475
BIIK Kazaksthan 6.3

Pot 3

(*Osijek Croatia 6) ...moves one up if ZFK Ekonomist participate
Klaksvik Faroe Islands 5.988
*Subotica Serbia 5.3
Peamount Ireland
Slovan Bratislava Slovakia
Pomurje Slovenia
*Taksi FYR Macedonia
Glentoran Northern Ireland 2.0

Pot 4

(Pärnu JK Estonia 1.6) ...moves one up if ZFK Ekonomist participates
Noroc Moldovia
UWIC Wales 1.1
ADA Albania
Birkirkara Malta
Jeunglesse Luxembourg
Artasehir or Karadeniz Turkey
Skonto/Ceriba Latvia
(ZFK Ekonomist Montenegro)

6 Torres
7 Bardolino
8 Neulengbach
9 Juvisy
10 Sparta Praha
11 Fortuna Hjørring

13 Malmö
14 Røa
15 Energy Voronezh (If qualify)
16 Wolfsburg
-------------
17 Glasgow City 18.615
18 Unia Racibórz 16.285

16 Wolfsburg

Imagine if Wolfsburg were unseeded...could have happened right? If Everton had been RU in England? Would have been a horror draw.

Birmingham will be unseeded and I think they have enough quality and international experience with their NT players to beat everyone except the top 2 seeds  + Wolfsburg ( they can't draw Arsenal of course).

I guess Glasgow is the toughest team i qualifying. FC Grings (or was it Zürich?) shouldnt be bad either. And for what I saw, Unia is very good and underperformed last season.

Any other good teams. Peamount in pot 3 seems like a draw you really want to avoid.

I guess Glasgow is the toughest team i qualifying.

...I was saying...

oh well, to win the shit you have to beat the best etc.

Fo what it's worth we are not among the four best. Unia is a great team that dominted us last season and we were fortunate to get a draw. And I still feel FC Grings could make an impact, even though she is past her prime.

1. Grings qualify with ease.

2. Three teams of equal strenght. My money is on Spartak.

3. Dezembro versus Cluj. I am not impressed by either. Probably the weakest group.

4. Unia - no doubt what so ever.

5. Three teams of equal strength also here. Peas will take this.

6. Apollon has lost some key players. They have the money to replace, don't they?

7. MTK grap top spot. PAOK should challenge, but won't.

8. I expect Osijek to give us (PK) a good fight. But if you want to progress Glasgow need to be given a fight. Half their squad make up the Scottish national team (or vise versa), which beat our national team 7-2. And we don't even have players on that national team. So either we will get our asses kicked - or then we are just better than our national team ;)

Women's Champions League kicks off
« Reply #36 on: August 06, 2012, 11:43:19 AM »
Glasgow City LFC, Apollon LFC, ever-presents KÍ Klaksvík and Montenegrin pioneers ŽFK Ekonomist Nikšić are among the 32 clubs competing in the qualifying round from Saturday.

The 2012/13 UEFA Women's Champions League starts on Saturday with 32 of the 54 contenders taking part in the qualifying round.

Among them are Glasgow City LFC, who reached the round of 16 last season. However, with only the eight group winners and two best runners-up to join the 22 top-ranked sides in the round of 32, Glasgow have a tough task. Two of their opponents, Finnish hosts PK-35 Vantaa and Croatia's WFC Osijek, also got past this stage 12 months ago.

Another team to have impressed in recent years are Apollon LFC of Cyprus, who eliminated two-time winners Umeå IK in the 2010/11 qualifying round. They host Group 6 against Ukraine's WFC Kharkiv, Ada Velipoje of Albania, and KÍ Klaksvík, the only team to have entered all 12 UEFA women's club seasons. By contrast, ŽFK Ekonomist Nikšić are Montenegro's first representative in any form of UEFA women's competition and are in Slovakia to play ŠK Slovan Bratislava, Poland's RTP Unia Racibórz and FC Bobruchanka of Belarus, quarter-finalists in 2004/05.

The ten teams that progress will go into the 23 August draw for the round of 32 and 16. All the exempted clubs, including holders Olympique Lyonnais, enter in the last 32 with the eventual aim a place in the 23 May final in London.

Qualifying round
Group 1: FC Zürich Frauen (SUI), Gintra Universitetas (LTU), WFC Pomurje (SVN)*, Ataşehir Belediyespor (TUR)

Group 2: FC NSA (BUL), BIIK (KAZ), ŽFK Spartak (SRB)*, Pärnu Jalgpalliklubi (EST)

Group 3: SU 1° Dezembro (POR), Olimpia Cluj-Napoca (ROU), Glentoran Belfast United (NIR), Birkirkara FC (MLT)*

Group 4: RTP Unia Racibórz (POL), FC Bobruchanka (BLR), ŠK Slovan Bratislava (SVK)*, ŽFK Ekonomist Nikšić (MNE)

Group 5: WFC SFK 2000 Sarajevo (BIH)*, ASA Tel-Aviv FC (ISR), Peamount United (IRL), Cardiff Met LAFC (WAL)

Group 6: Apollon LFC (CYP)*, WFC Kharkiv (UKR), KÍ Klaksvík (FRO), Ada Velipoje (ALB)

Group 7: FC PAOK (GRE), MTK Hungária FC (HUN), ZNK Nase Taksi-SNT 2010 (MKD)*, SKONTO FK (LVA)

Group 8: Glasgow City LFC (SCO), PK-35 Vantaa (FIN)*,  WFC Osijek (CRO), FC Noroc Nimoreni (MDA)

Imperious Apollon score 21, Zürich first through
« Reply #37 on: August 16, 2012, 02:53:26 PM »
On a day of high drama Apollon Limassol LFC came of age with a record 21-0 win against KS Ada Velipoje while FC Zürich became the first club to confirm their place in the last 32.

The UEFA Women's Champions League qualifying round continues to produce sensational results, not least Apollon Limassol LFC's 21-0 humbling of KS Ada Velipoje, the biggest win in their European history, on matchday two. Glasgow City LFC were the other side to hit double figures as 12 teams maintained their 100% starts and FC Zürich booked their place in the knockout stage.

The group winners and two runners-up with the best records against the clubs first and third in their section will join the 22 top-ranked sides, including holders Olympique Lyonnais, in the round of 32 draw.

Group 1
A pair of second-half goals from Inka Grings helped Zürich to a 4-0 victory against Ataşehir Belediyespor and a place in the knockout stage. The Swiss team are three points clear of their opponents and ŽNK Pomurje Beltinci, whom they beat on Saturday, and so cannot be overhauled at the summit. Hat-tricks from Kaja Eržen and Mateja Zver inspired Pomurje Beltinci to a 9-1 success against FK Gintra Universitetas.

Group 2
Alina Litvinenko and Emueje Ogbiagbevha scored either side of half-time to cement BIIK Shymkent's position atop the standings at the expense of Spartak Jaffa, who struck the woodwork three times in a 2-0 reverse. Third-placed FC NSA Sofia also triumphed, overcoming eliminated Pärnu JK by the same scoreline courtesy of first-half efforts from Valentina Gospodinova and Evdokiya Popadiynova.

Group 3
Comprehensive winners on matchday one, CFF Olimpia Cluj were given a sterner examination by Glentoran Belfast United. However, the Romanian champions drew on their experience to record a 4-2 victory. SU 1° Dezembro, who also have maximum points, remain hot on their heels, Andreia Silvia's 17th-minute opener enough to beat Birkirkara FC. The top two meet in a winner-takes-all encounter on Thursday.

Group 4
Polish pacesetters RTP Unia Racibórz produced another impressive performance, cruising to a 7-1 success against Montenegrin debutants Ekonomist. Forward Chinasa was in full flow, notching a second consecutive hat-trick, although coach Remigiusz Trawiński is still striving for perfection, saying: "We could have performed better after the break." Three points back, ŠK Slovan Bratislava staged a spirited comeback to prevail 3-2 against FC Bobruichanka.

Group 5
Five-goal victors on Saturday, Israel's ASA Tel-Aviv FC were given a taste of their own medicine by Peamount United, who condemned them to an identical 5-0 defeat. Both teams stay three points behind WFC SFK 2000 Sarajevo, who tightened their grip at the summit courtesy of Amela Kršo's 57th-minute winner against Welsh outfit UWIC LFC.

Group 6
Apollon Limassol sent out an ominous warning with a sensational 21-0 thrashing of Ada Velipoje, who bow out having leaked 35 goals in their opening two games. Laura Rus top-scored with five as the Cypriot side assumed pole position ahead of WFC Kharkiv – who came from behind to beat KÍ Klaksvík 2-1 – on goal difference going into their matchday three meeting.

Group 7
Buoyed by Saturday's five-star showing, MTK Hungária FC were in no mood to relent, consigning ZFK Nase Taksi-SNT 2010 to a 7-0 loss. Meanwhile, Elena Dimitrijević scored four as second-placed FC PAOK Thessaloniki stormed to a 8-0 victory over Latvian outfit SKONTO FK. The front two, both on six points, face each other on Thursday.

Group 8
A hat-trick from Glasgow City LFC's Katharina Lindner shaped an 11-0 triumph over FC Noroc Nimoreni and ensured the Scottish club climbed to the peak. PK-35 Vantaa also maintained their 100% record, overcoming Croatian team WFC Osijek 3-1.

What a game in Vantaa. Saved penalty by home keeper. Not long after that break-away, crossbar and post inside a minute for the home team.

Second runner up through: Spartak Subotica.
