UEFA Champions League 2021/22 begins

The 67th edition of the UEFA Champions League is set to begin this Tuesday, September 14th with matchday one when groups E, F, G, and H start us off.

The 32 teams competing in the Champions League will begin the games this week. The first games of matchday one happen on Tuesday, September 14th. The games begin with Groups E, F, G, and H. Groups A, B, C, and D will play on Wednesday, September 15th.

The winners of the Champions League will qualify to play in the Group Stage next year automatically and will earn the chance to play in the 2022 UEFA Super Cup. Last year's winners, Chelsea, will play Zenit on matchday one.

The Group Stage draw, which took place in Istanbul in August, decided on how the 32 teams would be divided. They are split into eight groups of four, based on their seedings. The top two teams from each group will play in round 16 and then there will be playoffs for third and fourth place in the Europa League knockout phase. Fourth and fifth place will be out of the tournaments for the season. The final will be played at Krestovsky Stadium in St. Peterspurg, Russia on May 28th, 2022.
