UEFA Youth League 2021/21 cancelled

UEFA Youth League 2020/21 cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic | RBL U19s were due to face Atalanta in the first round

17/02/2021 UPDATE

The UEFA Executive Committee has decided to cancel the 2020/21 edition of the UEFA Youth League due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects on the staging of competitions.

The committee had initially decided last year to amend the format of the competition and to delay its start, but the various measures imposed by health authorities around Europe have continued to evolve since then. The travelling restrictions affecting participating clubs create major difficulties for organising their matches and two clubs have already withdrawn from the competition.

UEFA Youth League draw

Due to the pandemic and the resulting difficulties with the organisation of the competition, the UEFA Youth League has been given a new format for 2020/21. The tournament will be played according to a straightforward knockout system (no home and away legs), and will begin with 64 teams. 

The first round will be played on the 2nd and 3rd March. The draw took place on Wednesday, 27th January - our U19s will be away to Atalanta in the 'Round of 64'.
