Champions League, Europa League & ECL quarter-finals: When is the draw? | Football News

The first Champions League sides have qualified for the quarter-finals, but who else can make it through and when will the last-eight ties be drawn?

When are the draws?

The Champions League quarter-final draw will take place on Friday, March 18 at 11am UK time, with the balls being drawn out at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland. The semi-finals will be drawn at the same time, meaning clubs and fans can plot out their potential route to the Paris final.

The Europa League quarter-final and semi-final draws will follow the Champions League ones in the same venue at 12pm UK time, with the same stage of the Europa Conference league starting at 12.30pm.

You will be able to follow all three draws across Sky Sports’ digital platforms.

How the draw works

The quarter-final and semi-final draws are both ‘open’ so, unlike the last-16 draw, anyone can face any team in both stages, irrespective of their country of origin or previous fixtures this season.

Each quarter-final tie will be given a number between one and four, with those four balls being used to draw out the semi-final draw that succeeds the last-eight pairings.

When are the remaining knockout ties?

The first-legs of the quarter-final ties will be played on April 5 and 6 with the return fixtures on April 12 and 13. The semi-finals will start on April 26 and 27 with the second legs on May 3 and 4. The Champions League final is on May 28 at Paris’ Stade de France.

All dates are provisional and subject to change by UEFA.
