UEFA announce the away goals rule will be removed from all club competitions starting next season

UEFA has confirmed that the away goals rule will be abolished from European competitions, with the rule change being put into place in time for the start of the 2021-22 season.

The away goals rule has been used for over half a century but will no longer decide knockout matches in UEFA club competitions, including the Champions League and Europa League.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin explained that the rule now “runs counter to its original purpose” and stated his belief that it dissuades teams from playing attacking football
