UEFA Women's Champions League trophy

A record 59 clubs from 47 countries have entered in 2016/17 UEFA Women’s Champions League

Entries confirmed for the UEFA Women’s Champions League 2016/17, in which 59 clubs have entered.

The increased entry is due to the Football Federation of Kosovo (FFK)’s first representative club (WFC Hajvalia) and that there are now 12 nations (up from 8) who now receive two places into the competition.

The competition will kick-off with the qualifying round draw on 24 June. The nine qualifying group winners will advance to the round of 32 draw on 1 September with the knockout phase starting in October.
