UEFA’s Executive Committee has approved a proposal to abolish the away goals rule from all UEFA club competitions.

The away goals rule has been part of UEFA competitions since its introduction in 1965 but the rule change means away teams will cannot secure qualification through the away goals from the 2021/2022 season

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said: “The away goals rule has been an intrinsic part of UEFA competitions since it was introduced in 1965.

“However, the question of its abolition has been debated at various UEFA meetings over the last few years. Although there was no unanimity of views, many coaches, fans and other football stakeholders have questioned its fairness and have expressed a preference for the rule to be abolished.”
