The tournament has several different preliminary and qualifying rounds, but the real fun begins in the group stage with 32 teams.

Clubs are divided equally into 8 different groups consisting of 4 teams, with previous years performances determining seeding. The top 2 clubs from each of these groups will progress to the next round of the tournament, while 3rd place will be moving onto the Europa League.

Each team plays its group opponents in a home-and-away round-robin format. From the 2024/25 campaign, it will increase to 36 teams.
