How does qualifying work?

In 2020/21, qualifying was truncated following the late finish to the previous campaign, with all ties prior to the play-offs single-leg matches. All being well, 2021/22 will see a return to the home and away format from the first qualifying round.

Where will the final take place?

The final will take place at the Saint Petersburg Stadium. The Russian venue had been due to host the 2021 decider, but was shifted 12 months to accommodate Istanbul's Atatürk Olympic Stadium (the prospective 2020 host before the COVID-19 pandemic).

The distinct venue on Krestovsky Island was designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa, whose vision was for a spaceship that had landed on the shores of the Gulf of Finland. It has been home to Zenit since 2017.
