Group Stage Draw Procedure
The 48 entrants are split into four seeding pots based on their club coefficients, with each of the eventual 12 groups to contain one team from each seeding tier.
The 21 play-off winners, the ten losing teams from the UEFA Champions League qualification and the 17 sides entering at this stage make up the 48 clubs that go into the group stage draw at the Grimaldi Forum.
No team can play a club from their own association, with the exact draw procedure confirmed before the ceremony.
