With the new season, the format of the CEV Champions League changes. Everything will remain the same until the group stage – which will still have 20 teams per gender divided into 5 groups of 4 – ends. At the conclusion of the group stage, the first 5 teams of their respective pools will be automatically promoted to the quarter-finals, while the 5 teams that finished second and the best third-placed team will compete in a home and away match from which the 3 teams that will complete the quarter-final lineup will be promoted. The other sides classified third in their respective pools will be added to the CEV Cup, entering the quarter-finals of the competition.

The format of the final phase is unchanged, with quarter-finals and semi-finals round trip format and then the Super Finals to award the trophy.
