The UEFA Champions League Draw of the season 2023/24 is now complete, setting up a spectacular competition. As significant changes are looming, the draw this year marks an important moment in tournament history. Take a look at the details of this year's draw, and see what is in store for all the teams.

Farewell to Tradition: An Evolution of the Format

It will be 2023/24's final Champions League, and the last to continue the traditional format with eight teams in each round-robin group. Over the years this traditional structure produced many memorable moments. However, change is coming.

New Format: Accepting Change

From next year, the Champions League's expansion to include 36 clubs will bring about a major change. Teams will be ranked according to a standings chart and compete for eight intense games, rather than the six matches of tradition. The eight top-ranked teams have a straight path into the round of 16 while those ranked between 9-24 are forced to enter a knockout stage to determine eight final spots.

Group Dynamics: New Rules, New Challenges

This rule prevents the teams in the group from belonging to the national association. This change adds excitement and strategic elements to the draw.
