Together with the 2019/20 season mapped out, the film for second season has become clearer. Here is what we know up to now.
- Together with the 2019/20 season scheduled to complete on 23 August, the main change to this 2020/21 calendar is that everything is currently somewhat afterwards. Qualifying, which was due to start on 23 June, will kick off August, together with all the group stage draw Athens on 1 October and also the contest proper becoming under way on 20 October. The knockout stages will be unchanged in the initial program.
- All qualifying ties are single-leg matches before reverting into house and away fixtures for your play-offs. The single-leg ties will occur behind closed doors. Saint Petersburg, the potential 2021 sponsor, will stage the 2022 occasion.
