The UEFA Executive Committee also confirmed that the UEFA Youth League will stay as a permanent competition with a different format as from the 2015/16 season. The number of teams competing will be increased from 32 to 64. The UEFA Champions League path is retained with the same format and system that is currently in place. A parallel path for the domestic youth champions is added. The domestic youth champions of the 32 best-ranked associations in the UEFA club coefficient ranking are given access to this path. These teams will play two home-and-away qualifying rounds. The eight winners of these ties will then contest a single leg play-off against the eight runners-up of the UEFA Champions League path, with the winners of these matches qualifying for the round of 16 together with the eight group winners of the UEFA Champions League path. A standard single leg knockout competition will then follow, with the last four qualified teams playing a final four tournament. [source]
