Scotland will be back to a single entry in the UEFA Women’s Champions League next season after dropping out of the 12 highest-ranking nations.

Having been 11th in the UWCL coefficient rankings, Scotland slipped to 14th at the end of the 2018-19 campaign and now for the first time both Netherlands and Kazakhstan will be granted an extra entrant.

France, Germany, England, Sweden, Spain, Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Switzerland and Norway are the other nations permitted two teams.

Defending champions will also take part if they have not already qualified via their league (making it possible for one country to have three clubs involved).

The 2021 UWCL Qualifying Round draw will be made on 19 June 2020, with ties played 12, 15 & 18 August 2020.

Gamla Ullevi in Gothenburg will host the final in May 2021, the first time that a UEFA Women’s Champions League final has been played in Sweden.

Meanwhile, the UEFA Executive Committee has decided to implement VAR at UWCL finals from 2019/20 onwards, as well as at the finals tournament of #WEURO2021 where it will work alongside goal-line technology.
