The qualification process is the same as in the previous years, though the number of the teams in the second phase also grew, thanks to the new format which added four more clubs to the wild-card holders. Based on the entries received, 11 teams representing the wild-card holder nations await the six best sides of the opening round and they are to be drawn into four groups (one with five teams). After the usual play-off in the third round – four duels contested an home-and-away basis – the preliminaries will see 16 teams playing in two groups of eight and the trophy can be captured in a Final Eight tournament.
