UEFA Champions League 2019/20 – Group Stage Draw – Live TV Coverage on BT Sport
Updated on Thursday 29 August 2019 by @TVNewsroom

The 2019/20 UEFA Champions League group stage draw will take place on Thursday 29th August 2019.

It will take place at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco from 5pm.

The 26 teams given direct entry to the group stage under the competition system introduced in 2018/19 are joined by the six winners of the play-off ties.

The teams are split into four seeding pots. Pot 1 consists of the holders, the UEFA Europa League winners and the champions of the six highest-ranked nations. Pots 2 to 4 are determined by the club coefficient rankings.

No team can play a club from their own association and, based on decisions taken by the UEFA Executive Committee, clubs from Russia and Ukraine must not be drawn in the same group.

In the case of associations with two or more representatives, clubs will be paired in order to split their matches between Tuesday and Wednesday.

If a paired club is drawn, for example, in Groups A, B, C or D, the other paired club – once drawn – will automatically be assigned to one of Groups E, F, G or H.
