When does the Champions League quarter-final draw take place?

The draw for the Champions League quarter-final takes place on Friday March 17th, beginning at 11am Irish time.

It will be followed by the semi-final draw and the draw for the final, which is undertaken for administrative reasons to decide who will be the designated ‘home team’ in Istanbul on June 10th.

Following this, the draws for the upcoming rounds of the Europa League and Europa Conference League will take place. More on that here.

  • Chelsea
  • Manchester City
